    Better tests find record concussions among U.S. troops
    12 Apr.`12 - Improved battlefield diagnosis has led to a record number of concussions detected among U.S. troops fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq last year, with an average of 16 inflicted each day last spring, according to newly released Pentagon figures.

    Numerous medical and surgical advances have occurred due to battlefield injuries. These procedures and new equipment are soon utilized in the civilian sector.

    One cheap and simple piece of gear that has saved many lives is the tourniquet. I remember when tourniquets were ordered out of medical kits. What a dumb move. I still used to teach it but emphasize the importance of how to and when to use it. The tourniquet was put back in use fairly early in Iraq and the survival rate increased immediately. I carry one in my medical bag in my truck and one in my gun bag.

    Landstuhl is legit, when I was deployed to Kuwait we would send injured people from Kuwait and Southern Iraq there for treatment all the time.
