Abstract

Special Operations Forces need trauma surgical support that is flexible and rapidly mobile. Current operations in the Afghanistan Theater of Operations required the U.S. Army 772nd Forward Surgical Team (FST) to provide support for Special Operations missions and conventional missions on short-notice using its mobile Surgical Resuscitation Team (SRT). The 772nd FST's experience over a 15-month deployment validates the concept of and the requirement for the SRT. This paper provides a framework for planners to design and implement this capability for support of U.S. Army Special Operations Forces (ARSOF).
