Motivator

The Army battle doctrine was developed for a mobile and widely dispersed battlefield.  The doctrine recognizes that battlefield constraints will limit the ability of trained medical personnel, including combat medics (Health Care Specialist MOS 91W), to provide immediate, far-forward care.  Therefore, a plan was developed to provide additional care to injured combat soldiers.  The Combat Lifesaver is part of that plan.

Instructional Lead-In

The Combat Lifesaver plays a vital role in ensuring that injured soldiers receive immediate far forward medical care.  Unit leaders must ensure that training takes place to meet the need for Combat Lifesavers by providing the resources and time necessary to train. 





SECTION III.          PRESENTATION

ROLE OF THE COMBAT LIFESAVER
NOTE:  Show Slide # 1-3
Immediate far-forward first aid is essential on a widely dispersed and fluid battlefield to prevent soldiers from dying of wounds.
Medical personnel may not be able to reach soldiers at all points on the battlefield in a timely manner.
The Combat Lifesaver is a non-medical soldier trained to provide advanced first aid / lifesaving procedures beyond the level of self-aid or buddy aid.
NOTE:  Show Slide # 4
The Combat Lifesaver is not intended to take the place of medical personnel, but to slow deterioration of a wounded soldier’s condition until medical personnel arrive.
Functioning as a Combat Lifesaver for the soldier is a secondary mission undertaken only when the tactical situation permits.

PURPOSE OF THE COMBAT LIFESAVER COURSE
NOTE:  Show Slide # 5
The combat lifesaver course is designed to train non-medical soldiers to provide emergency medical care as a secondary mission.
The course is demanding and ensures a thorough understanding of all aspects of the Combat Lifesaver principles.

 

Exams are closed book and administered in controlled conditions.



TRAINING THE COMBAT LIFESAVER
NOTE:  Show Slide # 6
A correspondence course (SUBCOURSE IS0871) has been developed for training both active duty and Reserve Component personnel.
The course is offered only in a group study mode and with training taking place at the unit level.
 NOTE: Show Slide # 7
Classroom instruction is provided by qualified instructors selected by the battalion commander or battalion / squadron surgeon.

Testing is performed at the unit level using the written and performance tests furnished in the correspondence course.

Classroom instruction is provided by qualified instructors selected by the battalion commander or battalion / squadron surgeon.
Testing is performed at the unit level using the written and performance tests furnished in the correspondence course.
NOTE:  Show Slide # 9
Training and testing will be conducted according to the tasks, conditions, and standards established by the Academy of Health Sciences, AMEDDC&S, and published in correspondence course training materials.
NOTE:  Show Slide # 10
Students who successfully complete the written and performance tests will receive promotion points (based on 40 credit hours) and be certified as a Combat Lifesaver.
The course consists of a student subcourse text, student examination, and an instructor’s manual.
STEP 1:  ENROLL GROUP LEADER AND INSTRUCTORS

The local TASC may have these items available.
Training items will not be provided by either the Army Institute for Professional Development (AIPD) or the Academy of Health Sciences, AMEDDC&S.
NOTE:  Show Slide # 25
The Combat Lifesaver program is a continuous ongoing program and requires continuous equipment and material support for the already qualified Combat Lifesavers.

Re-supply, during field operations, is accomplished in the same manner as during garrison operations with two exceptions:



  1. Non-divisional units obtain re-supply support from the nearest medical unit available.




  1. Emergency re-supply is provided to all units by the nearest medical unit capable of doing so.



NOTE:  Field medical units maintain stocks of medical material with which to effect re-supply of combat lifesaver aid bags during field operations.

NOTE:  Show Slide # 34
Each certified CLS will be issued a CLS aid bag by their unit.

The aid bags will be issued to the CLS only upon deployment (training and actual).

Check sheets for these tasks can be found at http://www.cs.amedd.army.mil/clsp/CLS_Recertt.pdf

NOTE:  Show Slide # 40
Do not re-enroll soldiers requiring recertification.  Unit instructors can accomplish this.
The instructor’s guide also includes a test appropriate for recertification.
It is the responsibility of the S1, not the medical platoon leader, to ensure that personnel matters concerning the CLS program are resolved.
NOTE:  Show Slide # 41
Recertification can be accomplished by any qualified medic, nurse, or physician.
You do not need a group number to recertify combat lifesavers.  Just write a letter with the student’s name, rank, date, SSN and a brief statement stating that he or she has met requirements for  recertification.

 


A copy of the letter should be placed in their 201 file.
