SMSgt Jeremy discusses the mission from the Team Leader perspective. We discuss Parachute insertion considerations, and also add a few other interesting medical comments about compartment syndrome and pulses, TXA for ongoing bleeding 3 hours after injury, and the spiritual aspect of rescue and emotional support of our IPs.

Yesterday two PJs from the 212th RQS on their State wide alert jumped from a  C-130 to a hunter who was mauled by a grizzly bear and severely injured.  

Care under fire was translated to risk of further bear attack, then prolonged TACEVAC to a hospital.  Hear about the unique issues of this mission and translating MARCH PAWS to a civil SAR for a severely injured patient.
