American men and women serving in the military deserve the best medical treatment. Unfortunately, the personnel responsible for treating battlefield injuries are receiving suboptimal education because the U.S. military relies on the use of animals. In some combat trauma training courses, an instructor cuts a live goat with a scalpel to create traumatic wounds that cause severe bleeding. In chemical casualty care courses, vervet monkeys are given a toxic dose of the drug physostigmine, which causes seizures and diarrhea and can result in death.

Alternatives exist that could completely replace the use of animals in these courses. Readily available human-based training methods--including rotations in civilian trauma centers and the use of medical simulators--allow for superior education and preparation of military personnel in the treatment of traumatic injuries.
