Pretty amazing statistical difference here between the regular Army medic and the Guardsmen Lifeflight trained medic. Good move on the Army's part to increase the training.

The tentative plan is to train 1,200 critical-care flight paramedics at a cost of $53 million, with the first of them deployed next year, says Col. Bob Mitchell, aviation consultant to the Army surgeon general.

...A new Army study shows that severely injured troops and Afghan civilians transported by Army National Guard units whose medics were also civilian flight paramedics had a 66% higher survival rate than casualties carried by standard Army medical evacuation units.
