REDUCE COMBAT MORTALITY THROUGH VALUE-ADDED CAPABILITY.
Nearly one in four (24.3%) US and coalition deaths in the 10-year period 2001 -2011 studied by Eastridge et. al were deemed potentially survivable. These 976 warfighters who died that might have lived represent where we can make the biggest improvement to the case fatality rate (CFR).
MARCH systematically targets the leading causes of preventable death on the battlefield. When seconds count, it is imperative that non-medically skilled personnel be able to apply the right intervention at the right time as close to the point of injury as possible.
Clinical standardization with logistics expertise is a proven pathway to saving lives! Each piece of MARCH Medical Gear represents the best-of-breed capability, optimized ergonomic design, tactical packaging and 5-year shelf life. Adopting standardized products and training tactical medical readiness will ultimately yield improved outcomes in line with those achieved by the 75th Ranger Regiment.
COLOR-CODED TACTICAL PACKAGING
Each piece of MARCH Medical Gear represents best-of-breed capability, optimized ergonomic design, tactical packaging and a 5-year shelf life. Our innovative packaging design links simple icons and color-coded tactical packaging directly to a treatment category within the MARCH treatment protocol (Massive Hemorrhage, Airway, Respiration, Circulation, Head & Hypothermia). Leveraging the MARCH treatment system is a foundational step in the adoption of standardized medical products and training tactical medical readiness.
