Abstract : This document and its appendices present a limited statistical overview of two aspects of U.S. Marine Corps medical evacuation procedures under combat conditions. These are: (1) the time involved in evacuating a casualty, from the point when injury occurs to delivery of the casualty at a hospital facility, (2) the extent of casualty misclassification. Measures of central tendency and dispersion are presented for each segment of the evacuation mission time profile. Data bearing on the relationship between field classification and flight corpsmen assessment of the categories of sustained injuries are also presented.
