Out of the Crucible: Transforming Combat Casualty Care in Iraq and Afghanistan

Our nation's military health system--while working alongside coalition forces fighting two wars on the other side of the world (and simultaneously caring for millions of service members, dependents, and military retires at home)-completely transformed its approach to combat casualty care. This talk will share these innovations with the wider EMS community. Attendees will learn how the military has increased combat injury survivability to over 90%; how it did it rapidly and on the fly; and how civilian health systems have adopted the military's lessons in their own delivery of trauma care. Dr. Kellermann will explain how the military and civilian health systems enhance one another and how lessons learned in one arena benefit the other.
