Special Operations Medicine - Call for paper

Preventing Ring Associated Injuries:Think Twice About Wearing that Ring


Matthew J. Levy, DO, MSc, Kevin Gerold, DO, JD           


Law enforcement and military personnel, especially those engaged in tactical operations, routinely perform tasks in ways that place them at risk for serious hand and finger injuries. Ring avulsion is one type of injury that is especially devastating, potentially career-altering and easily preventable. 

Prehospital Emergency Care Evaluation Of The Junctional Emergency Tourniquet Tool With A Perfused Cadaver Model


Keith S. Gates, MD, Lisa Baer, MS, John B. Holcomb, MD           



Junctional bleeding from the groin has become a leading cause of potentially preventable causes of death on the modern battlefield. To address this problem, we have successfully developed a novel device called the Junctional Emergency Treatment Tool(JETT).
The SAM Junctional Tourniquet(SJT)  has been successfully deployed in a field setting for the first time. The use of the SJT on a Afghan National Army soldier was the first documented use of the product since its release in April 2013. The SJT was applied to a GSW injury over the left inguinal area just proximal to the entry wound to minimize further arterial blood flow to the leg.  

The SJT has three FDA-cleared indications - controlling inguinal hemorrhage, controlling axilla hemorrhage, and stabilizing pelvic fractures.  

The full Case Report will be published in the Journal of Special Operations Medicine's Summer Ed.

Traumatic brain injury(TBI)occurs when trauma to the head disrupts the function of the brain. TBI is commonly known as the signature wound of the Afghanistan and Iraq conflicts. Drawing on personal experience at the National Atlantic Treaty Organization Role 3 Hospital in Kandahar, Afghanistan, the presenters will share their approach to TBI management in the deployed, multidisciplinary setting. The discussion will delineate the role of the concussion care center, a role proven instrumental in contributing to a significant increase in the return-to-duty rates for service members. Additionally, the presentation will highlight psychological and trauma coping aspects affecting recovery following a concussion in a forward deployed location.


At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the interdisciplinary treatment approach to TBI in the deployed setting
  • Explain the phases of recovery at a concussion care center 
  • Identify early inventions following a concussion to prevent posttraumatic stress disorder(PTSD)
  • Evaluate the impact of post concussive symptoms and PTSD on cognitive functioning
