2. New and Updated Medical Regulations, CPGs, and Guidelines

a. US ARMY DOCTRINE SMARTBOOK. The Doctrine Smart Book is a concise collection of Army doctrine summaries that reflects current approved doctrine and is prepared by the Combined Arms Center at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. Part one of the Doctrine Smart Book provides a visual representation of the Army’s capstone and keystone doctrinal hierarchy.

b. HYPERKALEMIA AND DIALYSIS IN DEPLOYED SETTING UPDATED 25_APR_2022_ID52. Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a recognized complication of combat trauma. According to the Department of Defense Trauma Registry (DoDTR) data, AKI was listed as a complication in 0.6% of combat casualties. This is likely an under-representation of the real incidence as it was required to be listed as a complication in the available documentation.

3. Medical FORSCOM WIAS, ARNG, and USAR Positions

5. Discussions on Medical Case Studies, Research, Guidelines, and Updates

a. JTS NEWSLETTER SPRING 2022 EDITION. JTS is working with the Armed Services Blood Program to develop guidelines for pre-deployment whole blood donor screening for the Military Departments (MILDEPs) and the U.S. Marines in accordance with DoD Instruction (DODI) 6480.04 Armed Services Blood Program (ASBP), 07 Jan 2022.

b. SLOW AND RISKY TO SAFE AND BRISKLY MODERN IMPLEMENTATION OF WHOLE BLOOD. During World War I, a most important concept that Cannon and colleagues noted was the efficacy of hypotensive resuscitation. They also found that the administration of saline worsens acidosis and is harmful to the critically injured. Fraser and Cowell concluded in a separate article that the use of saline is unsatisfactory. The same group noted the benefits of fresh whole blood transfusions. This was the first time blood had been used in an appreciable amount in combat.

c. Ambulance Exchange Point (AXP) Ops in LSCO. Ambulance Exchange Points (AXPs) are quintessential to the successful, expeditious evacuation of casualties from Point of Injury (POI) throughout the continuum of care during Large Scale Combat Operations (LSCO) and Multi-Domain Operations (MDO). With our near-peer/peer competitors possessing anti-air assets, air medical evacuation (MEDEVAC) may not always be available to the maneuver unit, especially between the Forward Line of Troops (FLOT) to the nearest Role of Care.

6. FORSCOM Casualty Response and Prevention

a. BDE MEDOPS Products. I have attached a few different medical operations products that have been used during combat training center rotations at JMRC.

b. MULTIMODAL EVAC FROM S KOREA FOLKS. This document is a great read, but again it is from a top down perspective. LSCO and MDO is going to require Role 1's to train in uncomfortable environments, spending half a day to 2 days in a MSTC will not provide your medics the opportunity to improve. Every TTP you have should be rehearsed in a medically focused training, we tend to practice while supporting the maneuver folks.

c. CALL CATALOG 19-09 WET GAP CROSSING. The intent of this catalog is to provide a reference point for commanders and staff in support of wet gap crossing operations. The resources listed consist of current and historic doctrine, handbooks, academic research, after action reviews, and other publications.

d. ARMY NON-DEPLOYABLE REPORT AS OF EOM MAY 22. As of EoM May 22, ~62.6K or ~6.4% of the Total Army was considered Non-Deployable; Army Non-Deployable rate decreased by ~0.1% from Apr 22.

e. 10TH BEB MEDICAL PLATOON TACSOP UPLOADED. Never create your SOP from scratch. Check the Role 1 Casualty Response and Operations page for several examples and templates.

7. Combat Medic Sustainment (CMS) and Medical Simulation Training Centers (MSTC)

a. UKRAINE: PODCAST EPISODE 101. Dennis had the honor of interviewing Dr. John Quinn who’s on the ground working Role 1 medical operations for an NGO somewhere in Ukraine. The lessons being learned by John and others during the early days of this conflict and the past 8 years can be used to help those on the ground now and into the future. This is an amazing opportunity to stay informed of current events and prepare ourselves by narrowing expectations and tweaking training.

b. RESUSCITATIVE ADJUNCTS, IO AND IV ACCESS USING NVGS, AND VANCOMYCIN POWDER FOR OPEN PENETRATING TRAUMA FROM THE JOURNAL OF SPECIAL OPERATIONS MEDICINE PODCAST SPRING 2022. The Spring podcast is a little late, but well worth the wait! In this podcast, our experts Josh and Alex review articles from Dr. Alexander Iteen and Dr. Hossam Abdou. Guest Medic PJ Pelaez reviews the article from PA Brett TerBeek. Josh and Alex are joined by Dr. Jonathan Morrison, coauthor of the Swine Polytrauma article. Their discussion delves into the particulars of the research and adds an element of fidelity to the manuscript.

8. MEDCoE Lessons Learned and Project Warrior

a. Marine Air-Ground Task Force Warfighting Exercise 3-21. United States Marine Corps Air-Ground Task Force Warfighting Exercise. Note Page 24 Logistics in a Contested Environment. Line 884 and discussion of CASEVAC operations and use of the Forward Resuscitative Surgical System.
