Triangular Group Academy’s Austere Medicine course trains participants in providing first aid and trauma care in areas without direct aids. Remote or isolated areas such as wind farms, areas where a natural disaster has occurred, or nature reserves often have no medical facilities and no possibility of transporting injured people. In other words, in the cases mentioned above, there is no care chain.
In this training course, trainees without any formal medical background are trained to stabilize wounded individuals. They will learn to do this in the absence of a doctor or care facility for an extended period of time, and they will learn how to prepare them for transport. Thus, the Austere Medicine course at TGA prepares trainees to provide innovative and expert first aid and trauma care, at the edges of civilization.
The Austere Medicine training can be fully tailored to the needs of trainees. Possible modules are preparation and planning, preventive care, stabilizing life-threatening injuries according to TCCC, bone fractures, cervical spine injuries, head and brain injury, prolonged field care, first-line medicine, medication and pain relief, relocation techniques, hypo- and hyperthermia, region-dependent care (jungle/desert/arctic/mountains/water), and flora and fauna.
TGA uses the latest educational resources.
