Army Guard and Reserve Soldiers Train to Become Combat Medics
U.S. Army Sgt. Danielle Whitsel, a combat medic in training assigned to the 7244th Medical Support Unit, Tennessee Army Reserve, sets an IV line for a patient inside a battalion aid station at Stones Ranch Military Reservation, East Lyme, Connecticut, July 13, 2022. IVs are a very important tool for combat medics as they can be used to replace extracellular fluid after intense blood loss, help prevent dehydration and can be used to help administer medicine to a patient.
