WASHINGTON — The Committee for Tactical Emergency Casualty Care recently released Ukrainian translations of its guidelines.

Dr. Matthew Levy, DO, MSc, NRP, associate professor of emergency medicine and associate EMS fellowship director at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, worked with C-TECC leaders on the effort. A team with John Hopkins Medicine helped with the medical translation, he said.

“My heart goes out to the people of Ukraine. I hope that this information can be of some help to our emergency medical colleagues on the front lines and to their patients,” Levy said in an interview.

The translated tactical emergency casualty care, ALS/BLS, pediatric and chemical, biologic, radioactive and nuclear guidelines are here.
