    Green Berets and Paratroopers completed critical care course training with Evans Army Community Hospital education department, April 9, bringing their innovative problem-solving skillset one step closer to directly supporting medical needs in the local community if needed.

    Building upon the Special Operations COVID-19 Rapid Assessment, Treatment and Emergency Support (SOCRATES) training previously completed, the critical care course familiarizes 10th Group personnel with standard operating procedures and specific equipment used at the hospital.

    “The significance of our guys being here is that collaborative effort to help the greater Fort Carson area and Colorado Springs,” said a senior medical advisor from 10th SFG(A). “We’re here supporting Evans Hospital with the training, and the future treatment if they get overwhelmed.”

    To date, cases in the Fort Carson area have remained well within the capacity of the Evans Army Community Hospital and aggressive social distancing has been having positive effects on the spread of the virus according to Fort Carson daily briefings.

    Special Forces Medical Sergeants and Special Forces Medics attending the training also covered critical care topics in pharmacology and how different medicines relate to COVID-19, acute respiratory failure, and critical care procedures.

    “This training is another way we can innovate and adapt our skills to solve problems,” said the senior advisor. “If this thing continues to grow, we’ll be ready to help.”
