As per available reports about 16 Relevant journals, 739 Conferences, 23 Workshops are presently dedicated exclusively to Tactical emergency medicine and about 333 articles are being published on Tactical emergency medicine.
Tactical emergency medicine services (TEMS) has emerged as a specialized niche within the field of emergency medicine. With increasing demand for physician participation in civilian tactical teams, there will be efforts by residents to become involved at earlier points in their clinical training.
Traditionally, the involvement of physicians in this area of medicine, and especially in the training for such participation, has come at the fellow or attending level. Currently, some emergency medical services (EMS) and occupational medicine fellowships include involvement with a TEMS team as an option for those interested. But, as former tactical medic and Surgeon General Richard Carmona pointed out, tactical medicine is a field that is likely to grow over the next few decades, and as that expansion occurs, it is likely that residents will try to become increasingly involved at earlier points in their postgraduate training. A recent study by Bozeman et al. illustrates this point by showing that approximately 18% of U.S. emergency medicine residency programs now include some exposure to tactical medicine as part of their curriculum. As such, this expert opinion article describes five maxims derived from one emergency medicine resident's experience with civilian tactical medical care. It is neither a clinical study nor a structured literature review, but rather an opinion piece intended to help emergency medicine residents and emergency physicians better understand the difference between conventional prehospital and inpatient emergency medicine and that of tactical emergency medicine.

Scope and Importance:
The mission of the Division of Tactical Emergency Medicine (DTEM) is to provide the highest quality preventive and interventional care to law enforcement agencies (LEAs) in both clinical and tactical settings; create educational opportunities for law enforcement officers, current and future tactical medical providers and other medical personnel; and lead the nation in determining and disseminating best evidence and practices for tactical medical education and clinical care.
Department of Justice, as of 2008, there are 1.1 million police officers. In 2012, the Bureau of Labor and Statistics states there were 1.1 million firefighters and 240,000 EMT’s/Paramedics. While these are not consistent years, growth has been around 5%, so in 2015, a conservative estimate for all public safety members is 2.5 million.
If each public safety member is equipped with a $100 medical kit and taught a $300 class on the entry-level components of tactical medicine, this would be $400 per member, and a total market size of $1 billion. Training certifications and medical equipment will expire every 4 years, which will create an annual market of $250 million, with 5% growth in public safety expected per year according to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics.
