In Tallinn CIOMR will organize a CCC test, as has been done in previous years. It has been scheduled for Aug 8th 2019.
The test will be based on the CIOMR CCC Manual (v3.2 2018).
The Manual follows the Tactical Combat Casualty Care Guidelines that have recently been accepted by COMEDS (the Surgeons General of NATO) as the standard for prehospital care. The Manual is also in accordance with STANAG 2122.
On the CIOMR website (www.ciomr.org -> committees -> operational medicine committee -> resource page) you will find:
– the CCC Manual, with a Summary and Flowcharts
– a videoclip demonstrating relevant techniques
– a description of how the test is put together and how scoring is done
As soon as descriptions with detailed pictures are available of the equipment (IFAK: Individual First Aid Kit) that will be used during the test, they too will be put on the CIOMR website. That equipment will also be demonstrated preceding the test itself.
Three additional remarks:
– competitors will be assessed as a team and also individually
– this year extra attention will be paid to the correct sequence of
assessing a casualty (as described in the CCC Manual)
– competitors may encounter “external” (i.e. non-CIOMR) referees
As in previous years competitors will be briefed 1 or 2 days before the test itself.
With kind regards,
Col Lewis D. NEACE, DO, USAFR (ret), OMC chairman
