Pararescue Medical Operations (PJ MED) Handbook 7th 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.

We are currently out of stock and will not print any more until we receive the 2020 updates from the PJ Program Manager. The pandemic has caused a significant delay in the update and we now anticipate the 8th edition to be available late February/early March 2021. We will announce republication and updates via Social Media and here once they are available. Thank you for your patience.
