One big positive that has come out of the current Global War on Terror has been the close examination of battlefield medicine, specifically regarding buddy-aid and self-aid. Troops preparing for combat overseas are taught TCCC (Tactical Combat Casualty Care).
Beyond the Band-Aid is a course based on the TCCC program that any gun carrier or person concerned with their safety should consider. These injuries fall into three major categories: Arterial bleeding from the extremities, Choking (loss of airway) and Tension Pneumothorax. Beyond the Band-Aid addresses all three forms of preventable death and teaches the participants about the readily available gear to treat them and how to do it safely and effectively.
Beyond the Band-Aid is a program offered by Student of the Gun University and it is part of the fall semester training offered this year. A Beyond the Band-Aid course is scheduled for November 1st and 2nd 2012 near Jackson, Ohio.

They were right, and started the Next Intent Tactical group to bring products to market.
