Role I battlefield medical care is care provided in the prehospital environment outside of the forward surgical team and the combat support hospital. It includes aid delivered from the point of injury through the battalion aid station or brigade support medical company until the casualty is delivered to surgical care. Providers of casualty care at this stage include injured Soldiers themselves (self-aid), fellow Soldiers (buddy-aid and combat life-savers), combat medics, flight medics, battalion surgeons and physician assistants.
