Tactical Medicine: Blast Injuries June 13, 2018 Gettysburg, PA

Explosions have the potential to create a multitude of injuries. It’s critical for first responders to understand how blasts affect the body in order to treat patients effectively on the scene. These events can pose multiple patient injuries and involve multiple agencies, making them particularly challenging for EMS. This course is approved for 8 hrs. of continuing education.

Topics covered in this 8-hour course include:

  • Injury Care
  • Prehospital Care
  • Lung Injury
  • Radiological Diagnosis
  • Crush Injury and Crush Syndrome
  • Post Exposure Prophylaxis for Bloodborne Pathogens
  • Abdominal Injuries
  • Extremity, Eye and Ear Injuries
  • Thermal Injuries
  • Pediatrics and Older Adults
  • And more


“The nature of attacks on US soil is evolving, with homemade explosives being used more frequently. Prehospital care training alone no longer adequately prepares first responders to properly treat this new age of blast injuries. Our course is taught by instructors with first hand experience treating these types of wounds.”

Jared Ross, owner of Rockwell Tactical & lead instructor of the Tripwire Tactical Medicine Blast Injuries Course
