The 91 B becomes 91 W on 1 Oct Each lesson presents information needed to successfully perform the medical tasks which a combat lifesaver must know. You will be furnished with needed materials at the time you take the performance hands-on examinations. You may be required to furnish a pencil for the written examination. You may study the information contained in this subcourse on your own before attending classroom instruction. When you take the performance hands-on examinations, the evaluator will use checklists similar to those contained in this subcourse.
The written examination consists of multiple-choice items and will be closed-book and proctored. No supplementary references are needed for this subcourse. If possible, answer the exercises without referring back to the lesson text. After completing the exercises, check your answers against the solutions located at the end of the lesson. For each exercise answered incorrectly, reread the material referenced for that exercise.
If the lesson exercises contain a performance exercise, study the steps until you know what you must do and the sequence in which the steps are performed. Some tasks, such as taking pulse and respiration, can be practiced. Your instructor may allow you to practice starting an IV on an artificial arm, but do not attempt to start an IV on a person unless you are under direct medical supervision.
Complete each lesson before proceeding to the next. As you study this subcourse, write down comments on the student comment sheet located at the end of this subcourse. Remove, fold, tape, and mail the comment sheet after you complete the examinations. Consult the objectives task, conditions, ana standard statements at the beginning of each lesson to determine the learning objectives. You must score a minimum of 70 percent on the written examination and a GO on each performance examination a NO GO on any step of a checklist will result in a NO GO for the entire checklist in order to satisfactorily complete this subcourse.
The written examination will be proctored. You will not be allowed to use the subcourse or notes during the examination. The primary instructor or a designated assistant will be responsible for grading the written and performance examinations. Please consult your primary instructor or his designated assistant for any questions concerning retaking a failed examination written or performance.
An examination may have more than one version. If so, the alternate version may be used for retesting. Successful completion of the written and all performance hands-on examinations in addition to successful completion of all IS buddy-aid examinations is required for successful completion of the Combat Lifesaver Course. There is no partial credit.
AIPD will send a notice of course completion for each student who has successfully completed the entire course to the primary instructor. The primary instructor will forward the notices to the students. FM , First Aid for Soldiers. The most important task you will learn is to initiate an intravenous infusion.
Initiating an intravenous infusion will help to control shock caused by blood loss, severe burns, or severe heat injury. The doctrine recognizes that battlefield constraints will limit the ability of trained medical personnel, including combat medics Health Care Specialists MOS 91 W , to provide immediate, far-forward care. Therefore, a plan was developed to provide additional care to injured combat soldiers. The combat lifesaver is part of this plan. The combat lifesaver is a nonmedical soldier who provides lifesaving measures as a secondary mission as his primary combat mission allows.
The combat lifesaver may also IS assist the combat medic in providing care and preparing casualties for evacuation when the combat lifesaver has no combat duties to perform. Normally, one member of each squad, team, crew, or equivalent-sized unit will be trained as a combat lifesaver. A major advantage of the combat lifesaver is that he will probably be nearby if a member of his squad or team is injured.
The combat lifesaver is trained to provide immediate care which can save a casualty's life, such as stopping severe bleeding and administering intravenous fluids to help control shock. The combat lifesaver is proficient in all buddy-aid tasks.
Combat Lifesaver Course Medical Tasks Edition A Subcourse IS 0825
Some buddy-aid tasks, such as providing care to a frostbite casualty, have been enhanced to allow the combat lifesaver to provide care to a wider range of injuries trench foot, generalized hypothermia, etc. For example, the combat lifesaver is taught to initiate an intravenous infusion I. Although the combat lifesaver is trained to perform certain medical tasks, he is not trained in all of the tasks that a combat medic performs. For example, the combat medic is trained in cardiopulmonary resuscitation CPR while the combat lifesaver is only trained in performing mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.
Table 1 contains a listing of the combat lifesaver tasks. Combat Lifesaver Tasks IS The combat lifesaver's aid bag with contents weighs a little over nine pounds and occupies about 0. The combat lifesaver must be familiar with the contents of his aid bag and how they are used. Table 2 contains a list of the contents of the combat lifesaver medical equipment set MES and their uses. The national stock number for the entire combat lifesaver medical equipment set bag plus all supplies is 01 Some items, such as the bags of intravenous fluids, must be replaced when their expiration date nears.
Usually, the combat lifesaver's unit will perform the needed stock rotation.

If the combat lifesaver maintains his own bag, he must replenish his supplies in accordance with his unit's standing operating procedures SOP. During combat, the combat lifesaver will need to be resupplied rapidly as his supplies can be quickly depleted. The combat lifesaver can obtain additional supplies from combat medics, from battalion aid stations or other nearby medical treatment facilities, and from ambulances evacuating casualties.
Answer the following exercises by circling the letter of the response that best completes the sentence or which indicates whether the statement is true or false or by writing the answer in the blank provided. After you have answered all of the exercises, check your answers against the "Practice Exercises Solutions" in the Appendix.
For each exercise answered incorrectly, reread the lesson material referenced. According to Army battle doctrine, a combat medic will be able to reach a wounded soldier within one minute after the soldier is injured. During combat, a combat lifesaver sees a fellow soldier collapse. The combat lifesaver must stop his combat duties and administer emergency care to the casualty. One member of each rifle squad and one member of each tank crew should be a combat lifesaver. A combat lifesaver should be proficient in all first aid buddy-aid tasks.
The combat lifesaver's aid bag medical equipment set weighs about: During combat, the combat lifesaver can obtain additional medical supplies to replace the supplies which he has used from: A nearby medical treatment facility. All of the above. For each item given below, write the number of individual items contained in the combat lifesaver aid bag in the space provided.
Left untreated, hypovolemic shock can result in death. On the battlefield, severe blood loss or severe burns usually bring about this condition. Hypovolemic shock can also be caused by dehydration due to severe vomiting, diarrhea, or profuse sweating heat injury. Watch for signs and symptoms of hypovolemic shock if any trauma resulting in a significant loss of body fluids occurs. When indications of hypovolemic shock are present, take steps to replace lost body fluids by initiating an intravenous infusion I.
The quicker the casualty receives I. Signs and symptoms of hypovolemic shock include the following: Rapid or severe bleeding: External bleeding from a visible wound. Internal bleeding from a trauma with no visible wound usually seen as swelling or discoloration. Severe burns second and third degree burns over 20 percent or more of the casualty's skin surface.
This is an early sign of shock. As fear increases, the heart rate increases, which usually causes the casualty's overall condition to deteriorate. The casualty may not understand his surroundings and take inappropriate actions. This condition is generally caused by lack of oxygen to the brain. To test the casualty, ask questions which cannot be answered with a simple "yes" or "no. What is the month and year? What day of the week is it?
The casualty may have a strong desire to move about or leave. The casualty may become agitated to the point of violent behavior and attack people around him. Changes in the level of consciousness. The casualty may quickly go from fully alert to unconscious. Pulse rate over beats per minute. Low blood pressure indicated by difficulty in detecting a radial pulse. Change in skin color: Blotchy or bluish skin, especially around the mouth. Pale and yellowish coloration in light-skinned individuals.
Grayish lips and fingernail beds in dark-skinned individuals. Extreme paleness or grayish color of the casualty's eyelids and the inside of his lips. Maintain the airway, if necessary. Control any external bleeding. Normally, you will position the casualty on his back and elevate his feet above the level of his heart level to increase the blood flow to the heart. IS If you suspect the casualty has a fractured thigh, leg, or ankle, do not elevate the legs until the suspected fracture has been splinted.
If the casualty has an open chest wound, position him on his side with the wounded side next to the ground. If the casualty has an open abdominal wound, flex the knees. If the casualty has an open head wound, allow the casualty to sit up or position him on his side with the wound away from the ground. If the casualty is on a litter, elevate the foot of the litter if the casualty has no open abdominal or open head injury. If you must leave the casualty or if he is unconscious, turn his head to one side to prevent him from choking should he vomit.
Avoid rough and excessive handling. Loosen any restrictive clothing from around the neck, waist, or other areas where it might be binding. Do not loosen or remove the casualty's clothing if you are in a chemically contaminated area. If the casualty vomits, he could inhale his own vomitus and suffocate. You may moisten the casualty's lips with a damp cloth. Initiate an intravenous infusion to replace lost fluids. Maintain the casualty's normal body temperature. In cool temperatures, place the casualty on a poncho and cover him with the sides of the poncho.
Use a wool blanket if you have one. Do not allow the casualty to lie in water. In hot or warm temperatures, do not cover the casualty unless he shows signs of chilling. Watch the casualty for signs of sweating or chilling. Remove covering if the casualty is sweating. Cover the casualty if he shows signs of chilling. If a tourniquet has been applied, leave it exposed so medical personnel can see it quickly. Check the casualty's pulse and respirations as often as possible to determine if he is responding to treatment.
Also monitor the casualty's level of consciousness and changes in skin color. In battle, you and your casualty may be smeared with dirt, sand, mud, or blood. The gloves will reduce the chance of various possible infections resulting from the I. In addition to the cause for cleanliness, the gloves should be used because it is impossible to know which casualties are infected with conditions such as HIV, HBV, or other bloodborne diseases.
Always dispose of needles properly. In the combat setting push needles into the ground. This way, no one runs the risk of an accidental needle stick. If, for some reason, you cannot wear the gloves, start the I. In a combat situation, you may be resupplied with an I. Povidone-iodine impregnated cotton pads. Alcohol Pads Gauze sponges Adhesive tape.
Do not use outdated solutions. Clarity of the fluid. Make sure the fluid is clear and has no floating particles in the solution. Discard any leaky bag. If there is any doubt about the sterility of the solution, do not use it. Obtain another solution bag. Check the packaging of the I.
Tears and watermarks indicate the set or the catheter and needle unit may no longer be sterile. Obtain another set or needle unit. Obtain another set if the tubing is discolored or damaged. The procedures may have to be altered slightly depending upon the type of supplies being used. After removing the infusion set from the package and checking it for damage, move the clamp along the tubing until it is 6 to 8 inches from the drip chamber.
Tighten the clamp once it is in position. Remove the protective covering from the outlet port long spout on the I. Do not let the tip of the outlet port touch anything until the spike is inserted. Grasp the drip chamber with one hand ana the spike cap with the other hand. Remove the cap with a twisting motion without touching the spike.
Insert the spike into the exposed I. The spike will penetrate the seal in the outlet port. Do not touch the end of the port or the spike during the procedure. Hang the bag on an object above the level of the casualty's heart, if possible, or hold the bag up until you have completed removing air from the tubing. Squeeze the drip chamber until half of the chamber is filled with I. Remove the air from the tubing. Hold the end of the tubing above the bottom of the bag.
IS Release or loosen the tubing clamp. This allows the fluid to flow into the tubing. Loosen the protective cap over the adapter. This allows the air to escape from the tubing. Gradually lower the tubing until the solution reaches the end of the adapter. Reclamp the tubing and retighten the cap over the adapter. In the classroom, loop the tubing over the I. An air embolism can cause the casualty's heart to stop beating cardiac arrest. It is essential that you make sure there is no air in the tubing.
Cut or tear four strips of tape about 4-inches in length and hang them on the bag. Look and feel palpate for a vein. The vein should be as close to the end of the extremity as possible. Make sure the site is free of scars, moles, and excessive hair. Avoid joints, areas where a pulse is palpable, and veins near or below injuries. Select a straight vein, one that feels springy when touched and does not roll. If you have difficulty finding a vein, lower the arm below the level of the heart.
If you still cannot find a vein on the arm or hand, try to find a vein on the foot. If this fails, try to find a vein on the leg. Attempt to penetrate the vein at the most distal point the one closest to the end of the extremity, farthest away from the heart that is practical. If you are unsuccessful the first time, move toward the heart for your second attempt.
The arm is the most convenient place for performing this procedure. Apply the constricting band tubing 6 to 8 inches above the infusion venipuncture site in such a manner that the band can be released using only one hand. Stretch the band slightly. Wrap the band around the limb so that one end of the remaining band is longer than the other end.
Loop the longer end and draw it under the shorter end. Ask the casualty if conscious to clench and relax his fist several times, then keep his fist clenched. If the casualty is unconscious, place the limb below the level of heart. Open a packet containing a povidone-iodine impregnated cotton pad and cleanse the skin at the selected infusion site. Wipe the site using a circular motion, beginning at the center of the site and spiraling outward.
Open a packet containing an alcohol pad and make one pass directly over the vien from proximal to distal, removing the povidone-iodine to facilitate the visualization of the vein. Open the packaging of the catheter and needle unit and remove the unit. Hold the stem flash chamber of the unit with the thumb and forefinger of your dominant hand the hand with which you write and use your other hand to remove the protective cap from the unit. Hold the unit so the bevel of the needle is up.
Do not touch the exposed needle or catheter. Pull the skin taut by pressing approximately one inch above or below usually below the infusion site with the thumb of your nondominant hand. Insert only the bevel of the needle beneath the skin. Lower the angle of the catheter and needle until it is almost parallel to the skin surface. Insert the needle into the vein.
A slight "give" is felt as the needle enters the vein. Check for blood in the flash chamber. If the needle is in the vein, blood will appear in the flash chamber. If the venipuncture penetration of the vein is not successful, pull the catheter and needle unit back slightly, but do not pull the bevel above the skin surface. Attempt to direct the needle point into the vein again.
If you are still unsuccessful, release the constricting band, withdraw the catheter and needle completely, obtain another catheter and needle unit, and attempt another venipuncture at a point proximal to above the previous attempt. If you are still unsuccessful after the second venipuncture attempt, obtain medical assistance, if available. Do not attempt another venipuncture. If medical assistance is not available, evacuate the casualty as soon as practical. When you have blood in the flash chamber, hold the catheter and needle unit in place. Stabilize the flash chamber with your dominant hand.
Grasp the catheter hub with your nondominant hand. Thread the entire length of the catheter into the vein to the hub. Only the catheter is advanced into the vein. The needle is not advanced. While continuing to hold the catheter hub with your nondominant hand, press lightly on the skin over the catheter tip with a finger of the same hand. Pressing lightly on the skin over the catheter tip is necessary in order to decrease or stop the flow of blood from the catheter hub after the needle is removed.
Ask the casualty to unclench his fist.

Reinsertion could cause a portion of the catheter to be sheared off, enter the bloodstream, and move to the heart where it could cause cardiac arrest. Loosen the clamp on the tubing to allow the I. Check the drip chamber to make sure the flow has started. Adjust the clamp so the I. The fluid should be flowing fast enough that you can barely count the individual drops of fluid. Check the infusion site for signs of infiltration fluids going into the tissues rather than the vein.
The signs of infiltration are: Unusual pain felt by casualty at site of infusion. Swelling at the site of the infusion. Redness at the site of the infusion. Site is cool to the touch. Clear fluid leaking around the site. If infiltration is not present, proceed to secure the catheter and I. Remove two strips of tape from the I. Once the hub is secured, release your hold on the adapter. Place a gauze pad over the infusion site.
Open the package and place the gauze pad over the hub and adapter. Use one piece of tape to secure the adapter. The tape is placed across the adapter if a gauze pad is not used. If a gauze pad is applied, secure both the pad and the adapter with the tape. Make a loose safety loop of tubing on top of the extremity with the tubing below distal to the infusion site.
Secure the loop of tubing with the fourth piece of tape. If possible, hang the bag from a stable object with the bag higher than the casualty's heart. Gravity will cause the fluid to flow. If the bag cannot be hung, place the bag under the casualty's lower back. Be sure that the drip chamber is completely full to prevent the introduction of air into the venous system.
The pressure from the casualty's body will force fluid from the bag. This method can be used when evacuating the casualty on a litter. Adjust the clamp on the tubing so the flow of fluid is stopped. Loosen and remove the strips of tape. Remove the tape from the loop of tubing; then the strip of tape securing the adapter; then the two strips of tape securing the catheter hub.
When removing a strip of adhesive tape, start at the ends of tape and loosen toward the middle. IS Remove the catheter from the vein by pulling it out at the same angle used in inserting the needle almost parallel to the skin. Cover the puncture site with an adhesive bandage from your aid bag. The small, sterile dressing on the adhesive bandage will help to stop bleeding and prevent infection.
Apply manual pressure over the site for about 5 minutes to help control bleeding. This step may be performed by the casualty. Antimicrobial ointment and a self-adhesive bandage can also be applied.
The performance checklist following the practice exercis is provided for three reasons. First, it is a review of the procedures given in this lesson.
