Background/Significance: Tactical Emergency Medical Support (TEMS) is a service modified from military tactical medicine to encompass the complex environment and mission set of current law enforcement agencies. Physicians and certified personnel acting as TEMS must be able to provide medical care under stressful and dangerous conditions as well as train police to be able to care for themselves when needed. A physician on-scene during a mission can provide deeper medical knowledge and abilities in the event that injuries or the complications thereof go beyond the training of paramedics. By working closely with the operational team, TEMS also have the opportunity to foresee possible risks and advise the team leader during planning stages. Tactical medicine also allows for preventative medical training, advising on anything from diet, hydration, and exercise plans to treatment of acute hemorrhage in the field.
