I used to tell the guys on my ODA that I didn't do IVs for dehydration, I only did rectal infusion, and I was always looking for an opportunity to conduct team cross-training on rectal infusion.

For some reason, the guys always stayed well hydrated.

Back story-I attended TCCC course three years ago and met a man who introduced himself as a SPECOPS medic getting some refresher. He Passed on a great idea Ive been trying to put together since. He meets with each of his members pre-deployment (small units 8-10) and builds a card for each perspective operator. I don’t recall all of the info he obtained but it was minimal and trauma specific I.e height weight, allergies,thinners yes/no, airway size, blood type, and pre calculated drug doses for pain and airway management narcs. Any other relevant ideas that would be great for a 4x6 laminated card?
I kept the cards with me for my eyes only, if I felt the need to pass something on guys trusted me to do so, but agency wasn’t aware of them

I do the same thing with my guys. "Camelbak-stomp rectal infusion rehydration...you have to bring your own Camelbak."
