Personally, I just give wounded(damage = armor) minifigs a trans dark red piece to denote that they're wounded. Wounded minifigs can only use hand or short range weapons, armor and skill get -1 and movement gets -2. If a wounded trooper is wounded again, he dies.
For medics, I use a skill roll, dead are use 4 and wounded have a use of 3. Some minifigs are too dead to heal(if the body got deformed(like getting gooshed by a tank, bullseyed by a missile, or just getting hit by a really high damage roll)) but the decision of when a minifig is beyond all hope should be decided by the players and is usually ad-libbed. No recording is needed, if you remember someone was very dead, then it was important, otherwise who cares.

Heroism is not the ability to kick ass. It is the willingness to use this ability on any poor bastard who so much as looks at you funny.
