Pararescue Medical Operations (PJ MED) Handbook 8th ed

The Pararescue Medical Operations Handbook is designed to form the basis of medical practice during both Rescue Operations and training mishaps for USAF Pararescuemen (PJs).

This revised handbook includes an outline of the principles of PJ medicine and the patient assessment checklist. This approach to patients is slightly modified from traditional primary and secondary surveys to reflect both a more efficient and a comprehensive approach to combat trauma based on PJ experience and data from Overseas Contingency Operations.

Portions of the Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) guidelines and the ATP Tactical Medical Emergency Protocols (TMEPS) that pertain to the Pararescue are included and have been modified to suit the PJ mission. The goal remains to have all PJs work to a single standard. The section on prolonged care has been modified and expanded based on PJ experiences.
