 Special Operations Forces Are Changing Combat Medicine With Jury-Rigged Hospitals and Freeze-Dried Blood

Fighting that takes place far from friendly hospitals is driving experimental techniques that may one day see wide adoption by the Pentagon.

Get shot or wounded within an hour of a hospital and your chances of survival are a lot better than if you were farther away. But for U.S. Special Operations Forces and their partners, “farther away” is where the fighting happens, sometimes hundreds of miles from the nearest friendly hospital. So they’re closing the gap in places like Syria using jury-rigged emergency rooms that fit on the back of trucks and lots of freeze-dried, powdered blood.
