After three exceedingly successful events with more than 1,300 participants from over 32 nations last time, the Combat Medical Care Conference 2021 promises to be another milestone in the field of tactical medicine. Combat casualty care of soldiers in missions abroad, from the place of injury by well-trained "non-medical personnel" to the qualified medical service and evacuation, remains a key aspect of this conference. A special emphasis is placed on "prolonged field care" which is oriented towards significantly extended medical treatment periods. Furthermore, as a result of the current terrorist attacks in Europe medical care under such extreme tactical conditions are becoming increasingly important in Germany. In this scope, police as well as rescue services have already benefited from the experience and treatment algorithms of the military services for some years and transfers them into the civilian sphere.
Under this year’s motto of "now, more than ever", a unique international platform is being offered in Neu-Ulm where military services, law enforcement authorities, disaster medicine services, rescue services and industry can exchange information on the subject of tactical medicine and share their experiences. More than 50 exhibitors have the opportunity to present their products for the treatment of so-called "combat related injuries".
