There have not been, nor will there be, prospective randomized trials conducted in the battlefield environment, and yet there must be some basis for process improvement in prehospital combat casualty
In October, the Army and Air Force completed the largest training and equipping effort of digital medical recording systems--Medical Communications for Combat Casualty

In 2008 QuikClot[R] Combat Gauze[TM] was chosen by the Committee on Tactical Combat Casualty

The current tactical combat casualty
care guidelines were evaluated along with the goals that an ideal resuscitation fluid should expand and maintain circulating blood volume, and thus vital organ perfusion, while having a positive effect on hemostasis.
7,8) In trauma and combat casualty
care medicine, a profound need exists for improved physiological algorithms that will provide a reliable early indication of hemodynamic instability, and provision of these algorithms has been the focus of our research efforts.

The aforementioned data support the contention that a capability gap exists in the scope-of-practice and clinical competency of prehospital combat casualty
care providers, both among paraprofessional medics and corpsmen, and credentialed practitioners.
