Right armament for the task : a comparison of weapons for medics (English)
Abstract [sv]

Sjukvårdsfunktionen i Försvarsmakten är viktig när skador uppkommer. Försvarsmaktens förmåga eller oförmåga att erbjuda soldater kvalificerad sjukvård är avgörande för soldaternas förtroende till den egna förmågan.

De svenska sjukvårdarna förväntas att oavsett terräng och hot kunna ta hand om en patient i nöd, de är därför utrustade med vapen för att kunna skydda sig själva och sin patient. I Försvarsmakten betyder det att sjukvårdaren bär en automatkarbin 5. Den här uppsatsen kommer att undersöka hur tre olika vapensystem passar in i rollen som huvudbeväpning på en sjukvårdsgrupp. Undersökningen visar att en PDW (Personal Defence Weapon) skulle vara ett bra alternativ till befintlig beväpning.

Abstract [en]

The ability to provide a good medical treatment to injured service personnel in the Swedish Armed Forces is important, but the Armed Forces' ability or inability to provide soldiers qualified care is also vital for the members of the armed forces confidence for their own ability.

Swedish medics are expected to take care of a patient, whatever the terrain and threat may be. Swedish medics aren’t considered to be combatants in war or conflict but the law gives them the right to defend themselves and their patients. They are currently equipped with the Ak 5 to protect themselves and their patients, a weapon that is used by all service personel In the Swedish Armed Forces, this means that the medics carry a full length rifle. This report will examine the weapon best suited for a medical team to carry out its duties while also providing a level of personal protection should the need arise.
