Providing medical care in a high-risk, high-stress, conflict environment is difficult. Especially for new frontline first responders and clinicians.
Saving the lives of both military and civilian casualties requires specialized knowledge and training. We created HTWB TacMed chat bot with the protocols from Stop the Bleed, Care Under Fire and Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC), so that frontline first responders and clinicians can rapidly learn, review, and prepare.
HTWB TacMed chatbot was co-developed by the Microsoft Disaster Response Team and Health Tech Without Borders (HTWB) for the frontline first responders, such as combat medics, paramedics, emergency medical technicians, nurses, and medical students.
TacMed chatbot will be available for free in English and Ukrainian languages. Learning modules include:
1. For Civilians:
a. How do I stop bleeding
2. For First Responders and Medical Professionals:
a. Care Under Fire
b. Tactical Field Care
c. Tactical Evacuation Care

We created this chatbot to help teach the critical medical skills needed by frontline combat medics and clinicians when treating and moving war casualties. We hope that this will help frontline medics solidify their knowledge so that it is second nature when they need to use it.
