Important principles of trauma care have been derived from the provision of care for a large number of military personnel severely injured in combat.1 The last decade-plus of combat operations in Iraq and Afghanistan have been no exception to this rule, resulting in more published literature than any previous conflict. Battlefield trauma research has resulted in important findings regarding casualty care techniques, technologies, and practices.
