UF PRO Releases ‘Pro’s Guide to Combat Medic Essential Skills’ Series—Shows How to Save Lives, Missions

Tuesday, January 15th, 2019

TRZIN, SLOVENIA (14 January 2019)—UF PRO®, maker of advanced-technology jackets, sweaters, shirts, pants, hats, caps, and accessories for military and law-enforcement units, today announced it plans to soon make available online at no cost a video series for aspiring combat medics to teach them the basics of treating casualties and preventing needless deaths during missions.

Called “The Pro’s Guide to Combat Medic Essentials Skills,” the video set consists of several installments hosted by a SF combat medic who currently actively serves in the forces and has kept troops patched up while participating over the years in everything from routine exercises to hot-zone engagements.


“The Pro’s Guide to Combat Medic Essential Skills” has been released on the 13th of January and lays out fundamental, proven techniques for quickly, efficiently, and effectively aiding the injured in the field when no medical doctor is available.


UF PRO® added that at the conclusion of each video, a short quiz is presented to viewers and said the company will give to quiz-takers who pass all three tests a complimentary, limited-edition UF PRO® Combat Medic patch that can be worn on their uniforms.

As explained by UF PRO®, the first video in “The Pro’s Guide to Combat Medic Essential Skills” series discusses care under fire. Field medics need to swiftly assess injuries and wounds, then choose the best way under the circumstances to treat them. This part of the series delves into the latest strategies for keeping unit personnel alive, comfortable, and safe.


The second video describes the M.A.R.C.H. algorithm. M.A.R.C.H. stands for massive hemorrhage, airway constriction, respiratory distress, circulation problems, and hypothermia. As the video reveals, each of those conditions is listed in descending order of injury seriousness and so provides a handy way to remember which ones must receive attention first when encountering multiple casualties all at once.


The final installment deals with the actual interventions medics need to make when casualties occur. For example, shown in detail are techniques to stop bleeding, splint a broken bone, clean a wound, and manage pain.

UF PRO® indicated that anyone interested in receiving notification that an official release date for the video series has been set can sign up for a UF PRO® email alert by visiting “The Pro’s Guide to Combat Medic Essential Skills” webpage.

Not your father’s MARCH belt.

Over the past year, CRO has been developing a scalable and modular load-carriage system for medics. The system is designed to scale up or down based on mission set and is the latest in a product line designed exclusively for the ground medic. See more at CROMEDICALGEAR.COM

The MARCH Belt was designed to work on the CRO Gunfighter™ Belt, a very well made inner/outer gun belt featuring horizontal and vertical PALs to allow for scaling the pouches based on need. The belt is extremely rigid and holds in place for extended wear.

In addition to the CRO Gunfighter™ Belt, The MARCH Belt is sold with five pouches and two tourniquet covers. The Small and Medium Gen Med pouches have CRO’s signature bungee retention panel with vertical pockets to allow customization. They are designed to open flat or be set to open at varying degrees depending on the medic’s preference. The rear pouch is a tear-away design and features the same inside setup as the Hybrid IFAK™.

This versatile product promotes the necessity of working off the body to deliver as many advanced interventions as possible in the shortest amount of time. This is a step forward towards dropping the med bag all-together.

The MARCH Belt will be available on GSA and other DoD contract vehicles in the coming weeks. For more information please visit cromedicalgear.com or email operator@cromedicalgear.com.
