Combat Lifesaver Bag Packing List


NEW COMBAT LIFESAVER BAG

As a result of new advances in trauma management and feedback from users in

the field, the Army has updated the combat lifesaver (CLS) bag. The new CLS bag

combines treatment recommendations from the Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TC3)

panel as well as changes in the program of instruction for CLS providers. Due to the

number and type of changes made to the components, the CLS bag now has a new NSN

(National Stock Number), 6545-01-532-3674 and a new unit assemblage number, 1245.

The Common Table of Allowances (CTA) is updated to reflect these numerical changes.

The long nomenclature of this CLS bag is listed as “MES Combat Lifesaver version

2005” to avoid confusion with the previous version, and is populated in the medical

databases of Medical Services Information Logistics Systems (MEDSILS) and the Unit

Data Repository (UDR).

Components of the new MES, with their corresponding NSN and quantity, are

provided in the table below. It is important to note that although a Chitosan bandage is

being authorized for inclusion in the Southwest Asia theater, it is NOT currently a

component of the assemblage. Also, while the Medical Chemical Defense Materiel items

of Atropine and Diazepam remain authorized in the UA and therefore listed, the

assemblage will be fielded without those two items. This is to comply with the currently

established centralized process for ordering these items. The new components, for ease of

identification, are also listed in the “characteristics” field of MEDSILS and the UDR

under the above NSN. Due to cost issues, the proposed bag in the assemblage 6545-01-

537-0686, BAG, TC3, COMBAT CASUALTY CARE will not be fielded with the

assemblage. The components will continue to be issued in the old bag, 6545-00-912-

9870, CASE #3 10X4-1/2X18IN.

Hextend will remain a component of the CLS assemblage. This policy has been

coordinated with the Office of the Surgeon General. That does not, of course, negate the

unit surgeon’s authority to replace that fluid with a crystalloid as he deems necessary

with regard to his/her CLS providers and the mission. USAMMA/DSCP will not build

multiple CLS assemblages with different intravenous fluids. That substitution can be

done at the local level. As of now, 03 April 2006, DSCP is filling orders for the CLS bag

with the new components.

Information regarding the updates to the CLS bag will be communicated to the

field in the following ways: via the USAMMA website and in the appropriate supply

bulletin (SB). USAMMA will also try to disseminate via the AMEDDC&S website,

appropriate email lists for division/brigade/battalion surgeons, TRADOC, and the AKO

homepage. Questions regarding these changes may be directed to USAMMA, (301) 619-

4305 (DSN 343-4305).
