Abstract

Methodology: In this review, two methods of field and library research were used. The data  were collected through related books and papers. Then interviews were done to validate the collected data.

Results: The analyses led to an operational, tactical model for triage, which is a step-by-step triage under enemy’s attack and vital measures to rescue the wounded.

Conclusion: Learning and applying the three-step tactical combat casualty care will help the medics offer the right medical care at the right time to a larger number of the wounded within   the battlefield.
