C-STARS training C-STARS visit highlights trauma training
Assessing and treating critically injured warfighters is no easy task for Air Force medics with two feet firmly planted on the ground. At 35,000 feet in the air, the ability to provide care is even more of a challenge, requiring in-depth, realistic training and readiness for medic team success. The C-STARS is a joint partnership between the University of Cincinnati Medical Center and the Air Force, with the mission to provide hands-on, realistic training for military medical personnel in trauma and critical care. One of three C-STARS training platforms in the U.S., the Cincinnati C-STARS trains more than 250 military critical care air transport teams (CCATTs) annually, evaluating and certifying that casualty care teams are capable and ready to provide emergency treatment to seriously injured patients at point of injury so they can be transported to military treatment facilities for further care.
