Trauma Care for Military at 35,000 Feet

Mar 12, 2012

Among the thousands of U.S, military men and women still fighting in Afghanistan, the realities of war mean many of them will have their missions cut short by serious injury.Quickly airlifting those in grave condition out of the war zone and to a hospital requires   teams of specially-trained medical personnel.

WNKU's Cheri  Lawson  spent some time with trainees of the Air Force’s  Critical  Care Air Transport team in Cincinnati where the rigorous training takes place.
