Battlefield First Aid save only those who stand a reasonable chance of survival AND eventual return to duty. Resusitation is no longer taught for Battlefield first aid, in low intensity ops it is practiced but in all out battle your time and efforts can be better spent on those who will probably make it.
In two episodes of BOB there are neck injuries and whilst I dont doubt for a second that such injuries do ocurr I find it strange that I have never seen one, pretty much everything else but no gunshot wounds to the neck. Quite a few head injuries though.
