Explanations for the increase in mental health problems in UK reserve forces who have served in Iraq. (1/204)

BACKGROUND: Deployment to the 2003 Iraq War was associated with ill health in reserve armed forces personnel. AIMS: To investigate reasons for the excess of ill health in reservists. METHOD: UK personnel who were deployed to the 2003 Iraq War completed a health survey about experiences on deployment to Iraq. Health status was measured using self-report of common mental disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), fatigue, physical symptoms and well-being. RESULTS: Reservists were older and of higher rank than the regular forces. They reported higher exposure to traumatic experiences, lower unit cohesion, more problems adjusting to homecoming and lower marital satisfaction. Most health outcomes could be explained by role, experience of traumatic events or unit cohesion in theatre. PTSD symptoms were the one exception and were paradoxically most powerfully affected by differences in problems at home rather than events in Iraq. CONCLUSIONS: The increased ill-health of reservists appears to be due to experiences on deployment and difficulties with homecoming.  (+info)

Pain and combat injuries in soldiers returning from Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom: implications for research and practice. (2/204)

Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) and Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) have resulted in a growing number of seriously injured soldiers who are evacuated to the United States for comprehensive medical care. Trauma-related pain is an almost universal problem among these war-injured soldiers, and several military and Department of Veterans Affairs initiatives have been implemented to enhance pain care across the continuum of medical services. This article describes several innovative approaches for improving the pain care provided to OEF and OIF military personnel during acute stabilization, transport, medical-surgical treatment, and rehabilitation and presents summary data characterizing the soldiers, pain management services provided, and associated outcomes. We also identify some of the pain assessment, classification, and treatment challenges emerging from work with this population and provide recommendations for future research and practice priorities.  (+info)

Deployment-related stress and trauma in Dutch soldiers returning from Iraq. Prospective study. (3/204)

BACKGROUND: Some questionnaire studies have shown increased mental health problems, including probable post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), in soldiers deployed to Iraq. AIMS: To test prospectively whether such problems change over time and whether questionnaires provide accurate estimates of deployment-related PTSD compared with a clinical interview. METHODS: Dutch infantry troops from three cohorts completed questionnaires before deployment to Iraq (n=479), and about 5 months (n=382, 80%) and 15 months (n=331, 69%) thereafter. Post-traumatic stress disorder was evaluated by questionnaire and clinical interview. RESULTS: There were no group changes for general distress symptoms. The rates of PTSD for each cohort were 21, 4 and 6% based on questionnaires at 5 months. The deployment-related rates of PTSD based on the clinical interview were 4, 3 and 3%. CONCLUSIONS: There was a specific effect of deployment on mental health for a small minority. Questionnaires eliciting stress symptoms gave substantial overestimations of the rate of PTSD.  (+info)

Using International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health to understand challenges in community reintegration of injured veterans. (4/204)

This pilot study used the framework of the World Health Organization's International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) to understand the challenges faced by Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) and Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) veterans as they reintegrate into the community. We conducted semistructured interviews with 14 injured veterans, 12 caregivers, and 14 clinicians. We used ICF taxonomy to code data and identify issues. We identified challenges in the following ICF domains: learning and applying knowledge; general tasks and demands; communication; mobility; self-care; domestic life; interpersonal interactions, major life areas; and community, social, and civic life. We found many similarities between the challenges faced by veterans with and without polytraumatic injuries, although veterans with polytraumatic injuries faced challenges of greater magnitude. Identifying community reintegration challenges early and promoting reintegration are important mandates for the Department of Veterans Affairs. The findings of this study are useful in understanding the needs of OEF/OIF veterans.  (+info)

Neural systems for executive and emotional processing are modulated by symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder in Iraq War veterans. (5/204)

The symptom-provocation paradigms generally used in neuroimaging studies of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) have placed high demands on emotion processing but lacked cognitive processing, thereby limiting the ability to assess alterations in neural systems that subserve executive functions and their interactions with emotion processing. Thirty-nine veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan underwent functional magnetic resonance imaging while exposed to emotional combat-related and neutral civilian scenes interleaved with an executive processing task. Contrast activation maps were regressed against PTSD symptoms as measured by the Davidson Trauma Scale. Activation for emotional compared with neutral stimuli was highly positively correlated with level of PTSD symptoms in ventral frontolimbic regions, notably the ventromedial prefrontal cortex, inferior frontal gyrus, and ventral anterior cingulate gyrus. Conversely, activation for the executive task was negatively correlated with PTSD symptoms in the dorsal executive network, notably the middle frontal gyrus, dorsal anterior cingulate gyrus, and inferior parietal lobule. Thus, there is a strong link between the subjectively assessed behavioral phenomenology of PTSD and objective neurobiological markers. These findings extend the largely symptom provocation-based functional neuroanatomy to provide evidence that interrelated executive and emotional processing systems of the brain are differentially affected by PTSD symptomatology in recently deployed war veterans.  (+info)

Traumatic amputation is one of the major injuries seen as a result of Operation Iraqi and Enduring Freedom with the majority being single trans-tibial amputations (TTA). TTA experience significant reductions in thigh muscle strength of the amputated limb during the first year after amputation. The residual limb is less active in daily functions of standing and walking, resulting in progressive atrophy of the quadriceps muscles in terms of a decrease in thigh diameter which is estimated at 25% of pre-amputation diameter. An intervention that may be useful in TTA rehabilitation is neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES). The overall objectives of this study is to test two different approaches to prosthetic rehabilitation as potential treatments for improving muscle strength, pain and functional performance of daily activities in military personnel with TTA. Our central hypothesis is that a Nurse Managed NMES rehabilitation program will have greater improvements in muscle strength and pain as ...
The purpose of the present study was to investigate the neuropsychological functioning of Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) and Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) combat veterans with Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). More specifically, this study sought to examine whether the neuropsychological functioning of OEF/OIF combat veterans with PTSD and a comorbid mild traumatic brain injury (TBI) significantly differed from those with uncomplicated PTSD across multiple tests of cognitive functioning. To accomplish this objective, the medical records and neuropsychological assessment data of 59 OEF/OIF combat veterans with PTSD and 66 OEF/OIF combat veterans with PTSD and comorbid mild TBI were examined and included for statistical analysis. Results of this study yielded three main conclusions. First, neither group of OEF/OIF combat veterans demonstrated notable performance deficits across the battery of cognitive tests examined in this study. Second the neuropsychological functioning of OEF/OIF combat ...
Many service members returning from Iraq and Afghanistan have difficulties adjusting back to civilian life. Research shows that symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are particularly high in returning Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF)/Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) veterans, and that combat-related nightmares and sleep disturbances are common in veterans with PTSD. This is of concern because people with these problems will often use unhealthy ways of coping. Although combat-related nightmares and difficulty sleeping are highly distressing, there are helpful treatments that do not involve taking medication. One of these treatments teaches specific skills to help people improve their sleep habits and to change their nightmares so that they are less upsetting. This treatment can be very helpful and research shows that people experience decreases in the frequency and severity of their nightmares, decreased symptoms of depression and PTSD, and improved sleep quality and quantity after ...

Grant Number: n/a. The Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008 (the 9/11 GI Bill) provides over 2 million veterans who served in Afghanistan (Operation Enduring Freedom, OEF) and Iraq (Operation Iraqi Freedom, OIF) with the opportunity to attend college full time. While the 9/11 GI Bill gives OEF/OIF veterans access to educational benefits, many veterans will return from deployment with physical and psychological challenges that may impede their academic success. In particular, research suggests OEF/OIF veterans have high rates of alcohol use and psychiatric disorders that could potentially interfere with class attendance, decrease grades and tests scores, and/or lead to withdrawal/dropout from college. Further, the transition from the battlefield to the classroom can be filled with unique stressors that OEF/OIF veterans may not be prepared to handle. Despite the potentially negative effects of alcohol use and psychiatric symptoms on academic success among OEF/OIF veterans ...
Many servicemembers supporting Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) and Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) have engaged in intense and prolonged combat, which research has shown to be strongly associated with the risk of developing post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). GAO, in response to the Ronald W. Reagan National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2005, (1) describes DODs extended health care benefit and VAs health care services for OEF/OIF veterans; (2) analyzes DOD data to determine the number of OEF/OIF servicemembers who may be at risk for PTSD and the number referred for further mental health evaluations; and (3) examines whether DOD can provide reasonable assurance that OEF/OIF servicemembers who need further mental health evaluations receive referrals.DOD offers an extended health care benefit to some OEF/OIF veterans for a specified time period, and VA offers health care services that include specialized PTSD services.

There are also similarities. In both cases, a link can be drawn between misinformation and the likelihood of warfare. Together with colleagues, I reviewed the literature on this relationship in a recent paper using the Iraq War and climate change as case studies. We report a reasonably clear link between the acceptance of misinformation and support for the Iraq War, both before and after military action commenced. In one U.S. study, belief in misinformation-that is, the existence of WMDs-was the most powerful predictor of support for the Iraq war. Belief in WMDs quadrupled the likelihood of support for the war. ...
A mental health diagnosis test is different from an IQ test, which assesses an individuals intelligence Although both are used as diagnostic tools, a mental health diagnosis test will seek to confirm a diagnosis rather than providing an accurate measure of a persons IQ. IQ tests are based on general intelligence, which is not determined by a specific, diagnosed mental disorder. Because of this, they are considered to be more unreliable than mental health tests.. The process of carrying out a mental health diagnosis test can be complicated and time-consuming for many professionals. Fortunately, there are several companies now offering online tests that can be administered in just a few minutes. In fact, you can carry out the entire test from your own computer! All youll need to get started is some information about the patient, their symptoms, their history of mental disorders, and so on. From there, you can answer questions on your own or have the ...
The Americas Majority website states that the War of Words Project assembles veterans, and particularly veterans of the Operation Iraqi Freedom, to describe the rationale of U.S. pro-democracy policy in the Middle East.

Risk and Resilience Factors for Combat-Related Posttraumatic Psychopathology and Post Combat Adjustment. The Ohio Army National Guard Mental Health Initiative (OHARNG-MHI) began in 2008 to evaluate the relationships between resilience and risk factors of developing PTSD and other mental illness, and follows soldiers in the Ohio National Guard longitudinally, before, during, and after deployment. The Risk and Resilience project is designed to study the relationships between 1) pre-existing mental illness/substance use disorders, 2) deployment to Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) or Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF), and 3) post-deployment related mental health and overall psychosocial adjustment.. The study is led by Dr. Joseph Calabrese and recently completed its eighth year of data collection. During that year, 1,140 service members completed their annual follow-up interviews. Since the project began in 2008, over 10,800 interviews have been completed with 3,841 Ohio National Guard members. Thus ...

All these facts are undeniable, there is NO arguing with them, its just how it is.

The answer for myself is NO, absolutely not. I can not answer for the close-minded, idiot (or retarded in your case), left-wingers who think they know the whole story (or perhaps are only worried about trying to look good in a political light).

You may have noticed that we changed the design of the name tags that we proudly wear at work. And its all for a very good reason - Jason Needle - our colleague and friend. Jason passed away on December 4, 2015.The new name tags will serve to remember Jason, and to encourage us to be supportive of others. We have implemented Jasons I Can. I Will. tag line on the new name tags as a reminder of who Jason was; a brave person who inspired others to live with a strong sense of community and commitment to live life to the fullest..

By Bob Brewin. March 11, 2013. Army Reservists and National Guardsmen get their care from private clinicians when not on active duty, making it difficult to develop a comprehensive health record without self-reporting.. Such self-reporting becomes dicey when it involves behavioral health conditions, such as post-traumatic stress disorder or substance abuse, which can pop up after combat tours.. The Army Behavioral Health Task Force report released last Friday acknowledged this conundrum. Soldiers are often reluctant to have their medical information released to their unit commanders for fear of stigmatization or limitations on their continued service, the report acknowledged.. Reserve and Guard troops, the report said, need training to reinforce the importance of ensuring that the Army receives and maintains complete and accurate BH [behavioral heath] medical records in order to ensure the best delivery of care possible. . Clinicians in private practice are usually unaware of the need to ...

Let me just give you a few examples of these concealment efforts, some of which I will elaborate on later:. ***A clandestine network of laboratories and safehouses within the Iraqi Intelligence Service that contained equipment subject to UN monitoring and suitable for continuing CBW research.. ***A prison laboratory complex, possibly used in human testing of BW agents, that Iraqi officials working to prepare for UN inspections were ...

  • Powell thought that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction, or WMD, and mobile bioweapons labs on the backs of trucks that could be quickly transported and therefore extremely difficult to find and stop (Iraq War Timeline Colin Powell Addresses U.N, Seeks OK For Invasion). (
  • After he was denied authorization to use force to disarm and remove weapons from Iraq, George W. Bush gives a speech that tells Saddam Hussein that he along with his sons have 48 hours to leave Iraq or America would start a war. (
  • It was October 1998 - George W. Bush was governor of Texas and Saddam Hussein was the president of Iraq. (
  • while there has been voluntary relocation of many Christian families to northern Iraq, recent reporting indicates that the overall Christian population may have dropped by as much as 50% since the fall of the Saddam HUSSEIN regime in 2003, with many fleeing to Syria, Jordan, and Lebanon (2010 est. (
  • The dictatorship of Saddam Hussein collapsed on April 9, 2003, after U.S. and British forces invaded the country. (
  • Iraq's implosion has been watched with intense concern by the United States, which invaded in 2003 to topple dictator Saddam Hussein and withdraw in 2011 after a war that cost almost 4,500 American and tens of thousands of Iraqi lives. (
  • T he Iraq war did not lead to the creation of the Islamic State and having Saddam Hussein still in power would only have worsened the situation, according to George W Bush's most senior adviser. (
  • Peter van Walsum, the former chairman of the Iraq sanctions committee from 1999 to 2000, speculated in a recent book that Iraq deliberately divided the U.N. Security Council by awarding contracts to France, Russia, and China but not the United Kingdom or United States. (
  • A generous newspaper editor I had shown around Iraq in 1999 took me up on an offer to write whatever I found in this new Iraq. (
  • Also raise your hand if you supported in 1999 the West going to war against Serbia in order to wrest away its province of Kosovo and give it independence - a move which ironically Russia opposed, arguing that this would set a precedent for territorial separation by force of arms. (
  • This "puts the United States in a much stronger position because they've got the international support that makes this more like the 1991 gulf war than the 2003 Iraq war. (
  • The 120,000 troops would approach the size of the American force that invaded Iraq in 2003. (
  • It also would reverse years of retrenching by the American military in the Middle East that began with President Barack Obama's withdrawal of troops from Iraq in 2011. (
  • In spite of the drawdown of U.S. troops in Iraq, funding the remaining garrison and the American-installed Baghdad regime remains enormously costly. (
  • The troops on the ground face little resistance as they begin to enter Iraq, but as they start to move forward to the larger cities in Iraq like Baghdad the resistance grows (Iraq War Timeline). (
  • Gen. Ray Odierno, commander of U.S. troops in northeastern Iraq, carried on with his address to the civic leaders, insisting that the disturbances were the work of a criminal few and that the resuscitation of Kirkuk would go on undaunted. (
  • Television and radio journalists broadcast the sprint of troops and armor through the desert to Saddam Hussein's capital - live - to the living rooms of so many around the world, as the war began throughout the fall of Baghdad several weeks later. (
  • Raddatz made more than 20 trips to Iraq, reported on American forces, interviewed top military commanders and was embedded with troops at some of the worst points in the fighting. (
  • What were some of the challenges that you and other journalists faced in the first few years that U.S. troops were on the ground in Iraq? (
  • U.S. troops in Iraq, Afghanistan and Kuwait have inhaled microscopic dust particles laden with toxic metals, bacteria and fungi - a toxic stew that may explain everything from the undiagnosed Gulf War Syndrome symptoms lingering from the 1991 war against Iraq to high rates of respiratory, neurological and heart ailments encountered in the current wars, scientists say. (
  • Just recently it was revealed that American troops forced Afghan civilians to march ahead of them on roads believed to have been filled with bombs and landmines planted by insurgents, a grave breach of the international laws of war. (
  • Roughly one-third of the 700,000 United States troops who fought in the 1990-1991 Persian Gulf War have subsequently developed a distinct set of chronic health problems, dubbed Gulf War illness. (
  • At least 116,000 Iraqi civilians and more than 4,800 coalition troops died in Iraq between the outbreak of war in 2003 and the US withdrawal in 2011, researchers estimated on Friday. (
  • Over ten years in to the Global War on Terror US troops have both suffered and committed countless human rights violations. (
  • That, despite the half a million Iraqis who died in the fighting from 2003 to 2011, the US troops should have remained? (
  • Earlier this month, talking to the Los Angeles Times , Trainum said Hickman told him troops were cool to Obama's announcement in October that American troops would leave Iraq by Christmas. (
  • Today I can say that our troops in Iraq will definitely be home for the holidays,' Obama said on October 21 . (
  • If that leads to the "disbanded" KLA retaking up arms again - this time against our troops as they repeatedly threatened to do throughout the early post-war years - then maybe it's time Washington learned to fight actual enemies, as opposed to inventing ones like Serbia and Russia. (
  • And as in Afghanistan, so in Iraq all these years later, the skies are again filled with U.S. bombers and drones and just recently another form of air power as well: U.S.-piloted Apache helicopters have been sent back into action to support Iraqi troops in their faltering offensive against the Islamic State (even as U.S. planes help reduce ISIS-controlled cities to rubble). (
  • Figures reported in 2013 put the total direct war deaths at 189,000, with approximately 32,223 troops physically injured. (
  • One thing we have seen evidenced, however, is that the injuries sustained by troops during the war increased in severity as the conflict progressed. (
  • The Vietnam War stretched from November 1st, 1955-April 30th, 1975. (
  • The survivor-to-fatality ratio, which was less than 1.0 during the Civil War, rose to almost 1.8 for the two world wars and to 2.5 for Korean era and Vietnam War veterans. (
  • Two American soldiers fighting in the Iraq war (2003 - 2011) are hiding out in. (
  • In the early years of the Iraq war, the U.S. military developed a technology so secret that soldiers would refuse to acknowledge its existence , and reporters mentioning the gear were promptly escorted out of the country . (
  • There are also the troubling ideas the American public still harbors about soldiers in Iraq. (
  • A huge one is that most soldiers support the war and are happy to be there. (
  • During my time in Iraq, "The Stars and Stripes", which is a military newspaper, released a poll that showed a clear majority of soldiers in Iraq as unsupportive of the policies. (
  • You said that it was troubling to you that most Americans still believe that a most soldiers still support the policies our government is carrying out in Iraq. (
  • In the Persian Gulf War, despite initial claims of a vast Iraqi death toll, we may have killed only one or two Iraqi soldiers for every dead Iraqi civilian. (
  • Fall 2011 ] Today, among the 87 war-torn countries in which data have been gathered, 300,000-500,000 children are involved with fighting forces as child soldiers. (
  • The butcher's bill for conquering Iraq and its vast oil fields: at least 4,483 U.S. soldiers killed and over 33,000 seriously wounded, many with brain injuries. (
  • During World War I, the armament industry on both sides of conflict decided that the guns and cannons could not kill people fast enough, so they introduced chemical warfare and soldiers were suddenly dying in massive numbers as mustard gas swept over the battlefields. (
  • For those soldiers that made it home, she brought light to the physical and mental scars that don't end with the war. (
  • World War I accounted for 116,516 deaths of American soldiers. (
  • In the Civil War, most wounded soldiers did not survive. (
  • The ratio of injuries to fatalities among U.S. soldiers returning from Afghanistan and Iraq is almost eight to one. (
  • The costs of a war do not end when the soldiers come home. (
  • Let us continue to remember all those (soldiers and civilians alike) who died in our wars as well as those who were injured because of war. (
  • At least 4,487 U.S. soldiers died during the war, in addition to 318 from other foreign countries. (
  • LONDON , May 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The Prime Minister has pledged his support for a GBP20million charity appeal to give the UK's most grievously wounded soldiers a better life. (
  • Despite recent investigations into the scope of injuries sustained by soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan, little information is available regarding the incidence and epidemiology of spine trauma in this population. (
  • PATIENT SAMPLE: A total of 4,122 soldiers who served in Iraq with an Army BCT during 'The Surge' operation. (
  • In the PLOS Medicine study -"Mortality in Iraq Associated with the 2003-2011 War and Occupation: Findings from a National Cluster Sample Survey by the University Collaborative Iraq Mortality Study"-researchers detail improvements in estimating mortality during the Iraq war and emphasize the public health consequences of armed conflict. (
  • The study is the first population-based survey since 2006 to estimate war-related deaths in Iraq and the first to cover the full-time span of the conflict. (
  • Researchers state with 95% certainty that there were approximately 461,000 excess deaths during the Iraq war, but the actual number could be as low as 48,000 or as high as 751,000. (
  • More than 60% of those deaths were directly attributable to violence while the rest were associated with indirect, but war-related, causes. (
  • According to results from the household survey, researchers estimated about 405,000 excess Iraqi deaths attributable to the war through mid-2011. (
  • The study analyzed death rates before the war and, through surveys and statistical analyses, estimated excess deaths that were above pre-war rates. (
  • War-induced excess deaths not caused by violence would include those caused by diversion of the health system to a focus on crisis care, interruption of distribution networks for crucial supplies and the collapse of infrastructure that protects clean water , nutrition, transportation, waste management and energy. (
  • Deaths increased to twice expected levels at the onset of the war, plateaued briefly at the end of 2003, then rose again to a new peak in 2006. (
  • Thereafter, deaths dropped until 2008, when they leveled off, and then rose again slightly in 2011. (
  • In World War II, civilian deaths, as a percentage of total war fatalities, were estimated at 40 to 67 percent . (
  • The results come from the first population-based survey since 2006 to estimate war-related deaths in Iraq, and the first study covering the conflict's full timespan. (
  • Thus was made the dubious case for war with Iraq, lies leading to countless Iraq deaths (with some estimates over a million) and many more wounded, maimed, and displaced, yet no one held to account. (
  • the second invasion of Iraq (2003-2011) and the war in Afghanistan (2001-present) were fought with conventional, chemical and biological weapons. (
  • Supporters also argue that the chemical and biological weapons that were believed to be in Saddam's control were shipped to Syria before the engagement and that the current existence of bio and chemical weapons labs in Iraq are an indication of Saddam's continued desire to produce WMDs. (
  • His visit is seen as a crucial test of his ability to build bridges between faiths amid the rampage by Islamic State (IS) jihadists in Iraq and Syria and concerns over the persecution of Christian minorities in the Middle East. (
  • Speaking on November 28 after meeting Turkey's top cleric Mehmet Gormez in Ankara, Francis called the situation in Iraq and Syria 'particularly tragic. (
  • The aims have changed drastically since then, with Russia's involvement in wars in Ukraine and Syria, allegations of meddling in foreign elections and one of the biggest doping scandals in sporting history. (
  • The idea that Syria used chemical weapons is more plausible than the idea that Iraq had vast stockpiles of chemical, biological, and (in some versions) nuclear weapons and was working with al Qaeda. (
  • But the evidence offered in the case of Syria is no stronger than that for Iraq. (
  • The White House hasn't sought to build much of a case for "defensive war" against Syria, even on the Benghazi model, and that deficiency is a major weakness. (
  • Iraq, a triangle of mountains, desert, and fertile river valley, is bounded on the east by Iran, on the north by Turkey, on the west by Syria and Jordan, and on the south by Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. (
