Sometimes when the ninjas invade, they capture family members. You need to be prepared to perform your own hostage rescue and medical care.
Would you perform Bear Under Fire care and tourniquet him at the point of injury, or would you drag him to a more secure location to perform Bear Tactical Field Care?
Assets of performing Bear Under Fire Care at the point of injury:
The tourniquet goes on sooner with less resultant blood loss
We have a 270-degree threat area, three enemy combatants within touching distance, and you’ll have to secure your weapon to provide care, or bring dedicated medical personnel to the point of injury.
Bear Tactical Field Care:
Asset: we have dedicated security which allows the medic to concentrate on casualty care and because we have drug the casualty to a safer location, we have narrowed the threat area to one doorway
Liability: Several second delay in Bear Care and hemorrhage control.
