Welcome to Capt. Hook's Medical Training in Austere Conditions (MTAC)
Maritime Medicine & Prolonged Field Care (PFC) Course
This course begins to prepare you for the austere phase of PFC. It is our goal to prepare you to expect the unexpected, to eliminate the fear and powerlessness one feels when faced with this situation and turn it into action to save lives.
Using the COPE readiness methodology (Clinical, Operational, Physical and Emotional), we will show you how to transition from Tactical Combat Casualty Care, Tactical Emergency Casualty Care or Civilian Rescue to know life sustaining skills until you can evacuate your patient to a higher level of care.
In this course, you will be aboard a Navy vessel for 5 nights. During that time multiple scenarios will be presented to you and your team. Through guided mentorship, your team will perform damage control resuscitation and interventions, while understanding preventative and critical care medicine.
Mascal casualties, Walking Blood Bank, High Angle rescue, Infil/Exfil, DCS, DCR among many more techniques will be addressed. This is not a finger drill training exercise, you will be drawing meds, administering blood and working with live patient actors to facilitate a real world situation.
Who should take this course?
Who should take this course? This course is designed for Military Medicine, Cargo Ship personnel, Cruise ship medicine and more. This course is also designed with the healthcare professional in mind. Physicians, PAs, Nurses, EMTs, Fellows, Residents and Medical/Nursing students will enhance their knowledge and improve their assessment techniques unique to this austere environment and will develop a full situational understanding when they receive a patient that has been subjected to this scenario.
Although we specifically operate off of a ship platform, these skills are universal in any austere environment you may find yourself with a casualty.
