U.S. Navy Utilitiesman 3rd Class Amanda Stone, assigned to Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 133, attached to the Combined Joint Task Force – Horn of Africa, performs a needle chest decompression (NCD) on a simulated casualty during the final assessment of a U.S. Army Combat Lifesaver Course held at Camp Lemonnier, Djibouti, Dec. 1, 2017. An NCD is used when air enters the chest cavity but can’t escape, creating pressure on a lung. The five-day course focused on teaching students how to administer lifesaving tactical medical care to wounded service members on the battlefield. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Timothy Moore)
