Historical Description[]

For as long as wars have been fought, there has been the need to treat the wounded. In ancient times, medical professionals accompanying the army tended casualties back at the safety of camps or garrisons. The first recorded use of field hospitals in the West came during the Spanish Reconquista in the fifteenth century. Dominique Jean Larrey, a surgeon under Napoleon, is credited with introducing many modern battlefield medicine practices including triage, the use of field ambulances, and life-saving amputations.

Modern combat medics are expected to accompany troops to the front lines and often fight alongside them. The conspicuous Red Cross helmets or armbands they wore in World War II usually protected them from enemy fire, though this convention was respected more on the Western Front than elsewhere. Rapid casualty evacuation by helicopter first became widespread during the Korean War and is now an indispensable technique; many wounds that would have been mortal just a generation ago can now be treated successfully. Traditionally, the wounded-to-killed ratio in combat was roughly 4-to-1. In the United States’ most recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, that ratio has dramatically improved to 10-to-1. Improvements in medical training and logistics have made warfare, though still horrible, just a little less deadly.
