Quote:Hey look, buddy. I'm a Corpsman. That means I solve problems. Not like problems "What is an operation", 'cause that would fall within the purview of your conundrums of philosophy. I solve medical problems. For instance, how am I gonna stop some big mean Mother-Queen tearing all the marines apart? The answer? Use MeraDerm. And if that don't work? Use more MeraDerm.


Introduction

The Corpsman are the frontline medics of the TGMC. After going through 7-9 weeks in Recruit Training Command Great Lakes, then 19 FREAKING WEEKS in Hospital Corps “A” School in Fort Sam Houston at San Antonio, Texas, and who the freak knows how long for Field Medical Service School in either Camp Lejeune, NC, or Pendleton, CA, you are FINALLY attached to TerraGov Marine Corps. No matter what anyone says about your Navy background, you are a MARINE!

Utilizing the latest in Nanotrasen technology which is also the lowest bidder, you're equipped to treat almost every type of damage, keeping marines in the fight, medevacing them to safety, or even bringing them back to life if they've been killed.

Playing the Corpsman

As expected, you are a critically important asset to any marine force. Compare to many corpsmen who work in ships or hospitals, you work in the expeditionary environment, deploying with marines.

Your main priority is to treat injured marines, but the nature of your work means you must also be ready to fight. Unless assigned to a FOB or other objective, you must be at the front but never on the front, keeping yourself safely in the rear-lines where you can treat and evacuate the wounded. The fight is your secondary responsibility, but you are still a marine and will often encounter flankers, harassers, or an entire assault force bearing down on your position. Do not be surprise that you will be doing care under fire, which you have learned in your TCCC course (Tactical Combat Casualty Care). This balancing act of managing casualties while protecting your rear-lines, or being able to support a push with backup firepower, is one all Corpsmen must master.

The role of Corpsman is very difficult but equally rewarding, and every marine knows they wouldn't last long without you.

Your Gear

Medicbag.png Medic Backpack

The backpack you start with has a defibrillator charger attached to it, and a power cell for the charger. Useful if your defib unit runs out of charge. Click-drag your defib to your backpack to recharge it. Examine the backpack to check how much battery charge it still has left. Has more space to hold supplies than the medic satchel, but is much slower to access unless you're holding it.

Medicbelt.png Lifesaver Belt

The belt you get from your equipment vendor comes with a variety of pill bottles, some splints and trauma/burn kits, and a couple injectors with useful chems. The guide to medicine will tell you what items treat what, and your health scanner will also tell you what medicine to use.

DMCA health analyzer.png Health Scanner

Your health scanner will show you whatever injuries a person has. At the bottom of the pop-out window, you will get advice for what steps you should take to heal the person you've scanned. Certain injuries will require a body scanner to locate, and will often require surgery to fix.

Rollerbedfolded.png Roller Bed

Roller beds are very useful for getting wounded marines out of danger before treating them. You can drag an unfolded roller bed onto your sprite to re-fold it. Sleeping on one of these heals a small amount of cellular damage, and it can also be used as a makeshift surgical bed. As a Corpsman, doing this will probably cause necrosis.

Medevacbedfolded.png Medevac Stretcher

Similar to roller beds, you can put a wounded marine in a medevac bed that's linked to a beacon and teleport the person in the bed to your linked beacon. Do not forget to link your medevac bed to your medevac beacon! Activate it before getting on to medevac yourself, if things are that desperate.

TGMC medevac beacon.png Medevac Beacon

Links up to a medevac bed. Use it in your hand where you want the beacon placed, then use the medevac bed on the beacon once it's on the ground. The beacon needs to be placed in a powered area. Do not forget to link your medevac bed to your medevac beacon!

Hypo.png Hypospray

The hypospray can be used to quickly inject chemicals into people. When you activate it in your hand, you can set how many units you want it to inject, fill it with any pill or bottle, or you can choose to flush the contents to be replaced with other reagents. When taken from the essential kit, contains 60 units of Oxycodone. Bought hyposprays come empty.

Cryobag.png Stasis Bag

Stasis bags will slow down bleeding, internal bleeding, larva growth, and keep critically injured people alive for long amounts of time. Might cause some genetic damage later down the line. Health scanners will work through the bag, but you'll need to open it for most treatment.

Defib 3.gif Defibrillator

Brings recently killed people back into the living world. If someone has an electricity icon on them, they can be saved. Needs to be recharged after a repeated use, the sprite will give a rough estimate of how much charge is left: green, yellow, and red. As long as you have medical training, defibbing someone will heal damage; the more advanced your medical skill, the more it heals. As a Corpsman, you'll heal 8 damage of all types with each shock. "Real" doctors will heal 16, Squad Leaders will heal 4.

Doing your job

For more information, see Guide to medicine

Once you put on your Medical HUD, you will see a health bar over anyone who is hurt. Using your medical scanner on them will tell you how much damage they have, and other info such as any bone fractures or trauma. If you don't know what to treat them with, check the guide to medicine or follow the advice at the bottom of the popout window. Remember to set up your medevac beacon before you leave the ship! Link your medevac bed to your beacon by clicking on the beacon with the medevac bed in your active hand, then set the beacon in the ship's medbay by activating the beacon in your active hand. This sets the beacon on the floor, allowing you to medevac patients who may need surgery. Medevacing prompts an alert on the Medical radio channel as well as producing an audible sound from the beacon, so don't worry about surprising medbay staff.

The Health Analyzer Pop-out window

You'll mainly be treating brute damage, burns, bone fractures, and pain. For basic damages such as brute and burn, simply feed them the relevant pills:

Bicaridine (red pill bottle) for brute

Kelotane (yellow pill bottle) for burns

Tramadol (white pill bottle) as a painkiller.


Each of the pills can heal up to 75 points of their respective damage. You may treat bleeding by applying a bandage or an advanced trauma kit on the specified limbs, though you should always be using advanced trauma kits as much as possible as it heals more. You may also treat burns with the advanced burn kit. In general, you should save your kits for damages of over 70-80 per limb, or if the limb is starting to get infected. If the limb is fractured, use a splint on the specified limb. Don't forget to give anyone wounded a Tramadol (white pill bottle) as painkiller. Be careful when administering Oxycodone as a painkiller. Though it may be the most powerful painkiller as it renders pain basically non-existent, it inflicts toxin damage while in their system. Do NOT give someone medicine if someone else is already treating them. You'll probably, and most likely, overdose them. Using trauma and burn kits is fine; if you target a limb already healed by someone else, you won't waste uses.

When dealing with oxygen damage, there are several causes that may be the reason. First, check if their blood level is below 80%. Having low blood levels deal oxygen damage at a steady rate, and this can stack up very rapidly and is quite lethal. In which case, you may give them Nanoblood (if you have it), or feed them food, as nutrition steadily regenerates blood. The fastest way to regain blood is through IV drips loaded with O- blood bags if it is available, though mostly only Medical Officers use it. It may also be organ damage in the form of a damaged heart or lungs. Should it be the case, you have Peridaxon Plus autoinjectors for use to treat organ damage. Only inject once! A Peridaxon Plus autoinjector has 3 uses, and more than 1 injection in a short period of time is lethal. The treatment will cause toxin damage (mostly negated by other chemicals in the injector) and leave the patient with long-term cellular damage. If the patient is rapidly suffocating and dying from oxygen loss, use Dexalin (blue pill bottle) to slow down the buildup of oxygen damage, and Dexalin Plus (blue autoinjector) to heal all oxygen damage in one go. Normal Peridaxon will stop oxygen damage from accumulating unless the organ damage is extreme, but it won't fix the problem.

When it comes to Toxin damage, the only way to treat it is through chemicals. As much as possible, you want to keep toxin damage at zero. Constantly increasing toxin damage indicates liver damage, and enough toxin damage can cause marines to puke in the middle of combat, stunning them for an excruciating long while. Use Dylovene (green pill bottle) to treat toxin damage. Note that Dylovene stops stamina regeneration, so it can actually be worse than nothing in some cases. Tricordrazine is a safer, but much slower, alternative. In the case of a marine with constantly increasing toxin damage, use Peridaxon Plus to heal their liver, or Peridaxon to buy time.

Cellular damage is unique, and it's only inflicted on marines who have been psy-drained while dead or who have been given certain high-powered medication. It can be healed slowly by sleeping on a bed, including a roller bed, or much more effectively by the cryogenics tube in the ship's Medbay. You won't see this damage directly listed, it'll be extra total damage unaccounted for by the four main types.

There are two organs Peridaxon Plus can't fix, which are the brain and the eyes. In the case of brain damage, feed the patient with Alkysine, if you have it on hand. If a marine can't see, then use Imidazoline.

For Internal Bleeding, there are several ways of handling this as a medic. The most straightforward way is feeding the patient with Quick Clot (lime green pill bottle) and medevacing them to medbay for surgery. However, Quick Clot Plus autoinjectors are also a choice. It heals Internal Bleeding in one injection, but it stuns the patient, and is only recommended to be used in the FOB, or in secure areas where you're sure there won't be hostiles. Like Peridaxon Plus, it will cause cellular damage. The most crude method is through Bicaridine overdose which does heal Internal Bleeding, though slowly, and it deals burn damage. This is generally safer than Quick Clot Plus, though - Kelotane will negate the burn damage.

What to do if someone overdoses

If some idiot (you) ends up overdosing someone on a chemical, you should use Hypervene to purge any chems from their body. Hypervene is available in pill and autoinjector forms. You'll also want to heal the toxin damage with Dylovene, if the overdose inflicted it. In some cases (Bicaridine as mentioned above, and Spaceacillin against necrosis) an overdose might be beneficial, however.

Dealing with the recently deceased

If you see someone who's dead and has a lightning symbol next to them, they can be saved. If there's a skull next to them, it's too late to help them. If the lightning symbol is yellow they have just died and you have some time. If it's orange, you're starting to run out of time. If it's red, they're about to die! Using your defibs on them will either bring them back to life or reset how much time you have to save them. There is a more detailed guide to this, but the basics are:

  • Remove any armor covering the chest.
  • Check the lighting symbol to see how much time you have. Yellow means more than 3 minutes, Orange means more than a minute, and Red means you only have a minute left.
  • See how much damage they have. They won't come back to life if they have over 200 total brute/burn damage.
  • Give them treatment for whatever damage they took. Use advanced trauma and advanced burn kits to bring the damage down as much as possible, then feed them Inaprovaline (purple pill bottle), which instantly heals 30% of their brute and burn damage. Consider not doing this if there's any risk the patient will get dragged off, or the Inaprovaline will additionally keep them alive in crit as they're dragged half a mile away from anyone who could recover their body.
  • Make sure the defibrillator is ready for defibbing by activating it in your hand, then click on the dead patient to revive them.
  • Feed them the relevant pills to heal the rest of their damage.

If a marine has more damage than you can heal with kits, or a significant amount of toxin damage, repeatedly defibrillating them will slowly heal all damage types. Only Marines with some level of medical training will do this, a normal Squad Marine can only revive, so get them to do CPR to buy more time instead. In addition, marines who have more than 500 total brute/burn damage are an expensive endeavor to revive on the field. It is generally better to medevac them for medbay to fix with sutures and their superior defibrillator skill.

When to send people back

Sometimes people will have life-threatening problems that you can't fix in the field. If they can't walk back, you should either put them on a roller bed and bring them back to the dropship, or use a medevac bed if you don't have time.

If someone has:

  • Internal bleeding - Give them quickclot and send them back for surgery.
  • Bone Fractures - Splint the wounded area. They might need surgery later, but in most cases they can still fight. If no location is indicated, it's either the head, groin, or torso. How to tell? The affected part won't disappear from the scanner even when otherwise healed. The splint will need to be re-applied if the wounded area takes too much damage, depending on the medical skill of the person that applied the splint.
  • Been Infected by a facehugger - Send them back for surgery. If you're far away a stasis bag will keep them alive longer.
  • Embedded objects - Use your tweezers on them. You might have to try multiple limbs. This has the same message as being infected and as having expensive Researcher implants, so consider asking your patient first before tearing out their stealth field generator.
  • Low blood - Use Nanoblood, if you have it, or have them go back for more blood. If there's food around feeding them can also work.

Tips

  • Don't try to treat anyone who can't run if you're in danger. Put them on a roller bed and get somewhere safer first.
  • You can buy more hyposprays in your vendor, and you can mix different chemicals in them and change how much is applied. If you know what you're doing, it can help a lot.
  • Meralyne and Dermaline are advanced counterparts of Bicaridine and Kelotane, respectively. They heal double the amount of damage per tick, but they have a lower overdose limit of 10 units. Combining Meralyne with Bicaridine and Dermaline with Kelotane is a potent trick to rapidly get marines back on their feet.
  • You can fireman carry downed Marines by grabbing them, then clicking on yourself. Slower than a roller bed, but you can hold a person in one hand and drag a roller bed with the other.
  • Lollipops (and cigarettes) can be used to microdose certain chemicals, granting the full healing effect while using less at once. Note that this also applies to the negative effects; a Russian Red lollipop will make you near-immortal but still constantly rack up cellular damage. Using an autoinjector or hypospray on a lollipop will inject a single dose. If the amount's too low, nothing will happen.
  • Technically, you don't need welding goggles as long as you have Imidazoline.
  • You aren't a proper doctor, but you know enough about both surgery and medicine to keep the Medbay functioning if there's no doctors around (or if they've been decapitated). Surgery steps will take about twice as long as a doctor, but you're still several times faster than untrained soldiers. You also can operate the Autodoc perfectly, unlike non-medical personnel, letting you free people from the purgatory of Automatic Mode.
