  1. Hi all.
    Sorry for the question, I have looked all over on here and cannot find a straight answer before posting.

    I'm a cmt2 in a non medical
    unit. Civvie job EMT in ambulance service.

    Hoping to deploy next year, unit don't know much about medics as
    the only one.
    BART and BTLS
    what do they consist of and are they open to cmt2(v) upon deployment?

    Further to this, team medics, what can they do? Protocols and kit?
    As it's nice to know what others can do.

    Also, can't find it on armynet, nsn for standard non advanced med kit.
    And dates for cmt1(v)2010.

    Big ask with all these questions, but I'm sure you guys can help.
    Cheers.
    TM.
     
  2. Team medics are really only a minor step above BCD. Most of the drills are the same, but incorporate some extra bits of kit such as Haemcon, suction, triage cards, resus face shields etc. There's also a little bit of care under fire training for them.

    The protocols are very like those on BCD. There's even a little TAMs booklet for revision.

    NSNs for the team medic pack stuff are as follows
