C-STARS training C-STARS visit highlights trauma training
Assessing and treating critically injured warfighters is no easy task for Air Force medics with two feet firmly planted on the ground. At 35,000 feet in the air, the ability to provide care is even more of a challenge, requiring in-depth, realistic training and readiness for medic team success. The C-STARS is a joint partnership between the University of Cincinnati Medical Center and the Air Force, with the mission to provide hands-on, realistic training for military medical personnel in trauma and critical care. One of three C-STARS training platforms in the U.S., the Cincinnati C-STARS trains more than 250 military critical care air transport teams (CCATTs) annually, evaluating and certifying that casualty care teams are capable and ready to provide emergency treatment to seriously injured patients at point of injury so they can be transported to military treatment facilities for further care.

Ediger, the U.S. Air Force Surgeon General, retires June 1, after a 32-year career that took him around the world, through numerous postings and varied roles. Although Ediger rose to the highest position in Air Force Medicine, he says that was not his intended career path.

Approximately 100 members of the Collaborative Auditory Vestibular Research Network, or CAVRN, met at the 711th Human Performance Wing April 24-26 to collaborate on areas of hearing and balance issues that service members and veterans face as a result of their military service. CAVRN meetings allow the research community to expedite scientific advancements with greater efficiency through open communication and collaborations that ensue. Ultimately, this approach results in technical and knowledge product solutions in the hands of the warfighter and their medical providers faster. The CAVRN meets once a year at a site hosted by one of the member organizations. (U.S. Air Force photo/Richard Eldridge) Research network works to combat number one disability claim among veterans
