Helix Field Manual
This manual is intended for use by recruits interested in entering HELIX, and HELIX members that need quick reminders now and then. It is intended that this guide only be read by HELIX applicants and existing members.


● Medical Branch
As a HELIX member, your job is to save lives rather than end them. You will always be a MEDICAL unit before a COMBAT unit.

● Compassion
All HELIX Members have emotions, you will not act bloodthirsty in front of other units as well as citizens. For example, where a UNION-05 might say to a citizen, "Get out of here!" you should instead be saying something like, "Leave the premises, you cannot be here." or something similar. It’s your job to be compassionate.
However, once you get past 01, units will generally lose that emotion or fake it. Or, unless you’ve been ordered to experiment on individuals. There should still be no situation under any circumstances where you use high amounts of aggression towards anyone.

● Dealing with the dead
Everyone is organic and human to a degree. If a unit gets injured and the situation presents the impossible, you will immediately say this line: “You have asked for the impossible, you will die.” Wounds straight into the heart and head tend to be very fatal and result in death within seconds, rarely minutes.
Lower-ranked units may have a difficult time doing this, and may lose their grip on the situation when a unit they know is the one dying. It is critical that you keep yourself together in hectic situations like this, where your mental stability is of utmost importance. If you see a fellow unit losing their grip, assist them whatever way you can to get them back on their feet.


Step One - On the Scene

● When arriving at the scene you will first deem whether or not the environment that the patient is in is hazardous or not. One of three situations will likely happen.

Situation One - The environment is deemed safe and you may move to the patient.

Situation Two - The environment is deemed hazardous but you can still manage to proceed to the patient. In this situation you are to alert every nearby Officer that you are moving to the patient in order for them to cover you. At this point you are to move the patient to safety.

Situation Three - The environment is deemed hazardous and the patient can not be reached through any means without another casualty being inflicted. At this point, the final verdict is dropped. The Officer will die.


Step Two - Check for Signs of Life

After situation One or Two you will perform these steps.

Check for signs of life by...

● Tapping the shoulder of the patient to see if they are responsive to your actions, also asking “Hey, are you okay?” or “Are you active, unit?” If they are responsive, you may immediately move into First AID.

● If they are non-responsive you must perform First AID and CPR.


Step Three - First AID Treatment

● Identify the wound and perform steps to treat them.

Puncture Wounds (Gunshots, knife wounds, etc. If the skin is broken, it is a puncture wound.)

● Apply Bio-Gel formula mixture onto the wound.

● Administer CRS-PR via IM Cubital vein if patient is in severe pain or is about to pass out.

● Apply a Field Dressing onto the wound, strapping it correctly.

● If field dressing is not available, apply bandage.

● Extract patient from the field or move onto CPR.


For any type of laceration or wound by knife, whether the knife be in the wound or out, you will perform the exact same steps as listed above(NOTE: If the knife or sharp object is still in the wound, DO NOT REMOVE IT unless you are in a safe environment where you have the tools present to save the patient. Removing the object will un-block the laceration and can cause death from blood-loss.)

This goes for broken limbs and burns:

● If limb is broken, create a split if possible FIRST, then proceed with medical attention.

● If the burn is an electrical burn, remove the source FIRST, then proceed with medical attention.


Step Four - Performing CPR

Perform CPR by...

● Checking for signs of air circulation via facemask air outtake or taking both yours and their mask off and leaning your ear over their mouth, lifting their head up slightly using gentle pressure with hands on the forehead and chin. If airflow is present, move straight away into First AID.

● If air is not being received by the patient, remove the mask, yours and his and perform 3 rescue breaths.

● If it appears that an object is blocking the airway and air can not enter via rescue breath, begin chest compressions of 30. After 30 chest compressions are performed, check the mouth to see if there is an object present and remove, if there isn’t, perform 3 rescue breaths or CMAP still to see if airflow can be achieved. If it is achieved, the object has gone into the patient’s stomach. If extraction of an object is still not possible, use a sharp object to puncture the patient's skin in the lower throat so that airflow can be made possible.

● Perform a normal cycle of 3 breaths and 30 chest compressions, there should be at least 90 chest compressions per minute as well as 6-9 rescue breaths accompanying it. (NOTICE: It does not matter what comes first, 3 breaths or 30 compressions, you must know that you need to keep the heart circulating blood to the vital organs.)

● Keep performing CPR until the patient comes back or extraction is present.

● If the patient comes to, turn him onto his or her side incase they want to vomit or if anything comes out.


Required Gear

● Three bandages - Bandages to be used in the event that no field dressing is available, or if there are large amounts of blood loss.

● Two medvials - Canister containing biogel.

● One medkit - Contains everything you will need for just about any situation. Contains a defibrillator, biogel, a single field dressing, one bandage roll, and CRS-PR.


CRS-PR stands for Combat Ready Syringe - Pain Reliever. You will use this more than any type of CRS. The two other types of CRS are CRS-S and CRS-A. CRS-S is a sedative that will put the patient under if they are being to resistant to medical care. CRS-A is an anaesthetic, used to make a patient forget something, whether it be a surgery or a traumatic experience in the field.


Civilians

If you are to come across a wounded civilian, you do NOT have to help them. No HELIX unit has any obligation to give medical assistance to citizens. If you are RCT-01 and come across a wounded citizen, you are to:

●Call it in with your radio and let any HELIX member ranked FdM-DvL know of the situation.

●If the officer says to leave the citizen alone, you WILL leave the citizen alone. If the officer says you may give medical treatment, but do not have to, then you can do so or leave the citizen be.

●Inform any Civil Workers' Union members of the incident if possible, so that they may treat the civilian themselves.

Any HELIX member ranked FdM-DvL may give citizens medical treatment at their own discretion without the authorization of a higher-ranked unit.

If any CWU civilians are found harmed, you WILL provide medical care as necessary, but you will only give basic assistance, such as first-AID and CPR. You are not to bring them to the Nexus for futher medical care. Any unit ranked FdM-DvL does not have to give assistance to any injured CWU members, though any unit ranked RCT-01 will have to.
