Sudden deaths among Finnish conscripts. (2/466)

The epidemiology of sudden deaths was studied among conscripts in Finland in 1948-72 (660 000 man-years) and among Finnish men aged 15-24 years in 1969-70 (900 000 man-years). The incidence of sudden deaths among the conscripts was 6-8/100 000 man-years. The onset of acute symptoms occurred during strenuous exercise in a third of the conscripts but in only a few of the other young men. Cardiovascular diseases caused two-thirds of the deaths in both groups. Sudden death tended to be more common among conscripts than among other young men during the corresponding period, but overall non-violent deaths were less common among conscripts than among other young men. On the basis of health records an attempt was made to separate the sudden deaths among conscripts from those among the controls by multiple discriminant analysis. For all practical purposes, however, the separation power proved poor.  (+info)

Reengineering the picture archiving and communication system (PACS) process for digital imaging networks PACS. (3/466)

Prior to June 1997, military picture archiving and communications systems (PACS) were planned, procured, and installed with key decisions on the system, equipment, and even funding sources made through a research and development office called Medical Diagnostic Imaging Systems (MDIS). Beginning in June 1997, the Joint Imaging Technology Project Office (JITPO) initiated a collaborative and consultative process for planning and implementing PACS into military treatment facilities through a new Department of Defense (DoD) contract vehicle called digital imaging networks (DIN)-PACS. The JITPO reengineered this process incorporating multiple organizations and politics. The reengineered PACS process administered through the JITPO transformed the decision process and accountability from a single office to a consultative method that increased end-user knowledge, responsibility, and ownership in PACS. The JITPO continues to provide information and services that assist multiple groups and users in rendering PACS planning and implementation decisions. Local site project managers are involved from the outset and this end-user collaboration has made the sometimes difficult transition to PACS an easier and more acceptable process for all involved. Corporately, this process saved DoD sites millions by having PACS plans developed within the government and proposed to vendors second, and then having vendors respond specifically to those plans. The integrity and efficiency of the process have reduced the opportunity for implementing nonstandard systems while sharing resources and reducing wasted government dollars. This presentation will describe the chronology of changes, encountered obstacles, and lessons learned within the reengineering of the PACS process for DIN-PACS.  (+info)

Meta-manager: a requirements analysis. (4/466)

The digital imaging network-picture-archiving and communications system (DIN-PACS) will be implemented in ten sites within the Great Plains Regional Medical Command (GPRMC). This network of PACS and teleradiology technology over a shared T1 network has opened the door for round the clock radiology coverage of all sites. However, the concept of a virtual radiology environment poses new issues for military medicine. A new workflow management system must be developed. This workflow management system will allow us to efficiently resolve these issues including quality of care, availability, severe capitation, and quality of the workforce. The design process of this management system must employ existing technology, operate over various telecommunication networks and protocols, be independent of platform operating systems, be flexible and scaleable, and involve the end user at the outset in the design process for which it is developed. Using the unified modeling language (UML), the specifications for this new business management system were created in concert between the University of Arizona and the GPRMC. These specifications detail a management system operating through a common object request brokered architecture (CORBA) environment. In this presentation, we characterize the Meta-Manager management system including aspects of intelligence, interfacility routing, fail-safe operations, and expected improvements in patient care and efficiency.  (+info)

Benchmark testing the Digital Imaging Network-Picture Archiving and Communications System proposal of the Department of Defense. (5/466)

The Department of Defense issued a Request for Proposal (RFP) for its next generation Picture Archiving and Communications System in January of 1997. The RFP was titled Digital Imaging Network-Picture Archiving and Communications System (DIN-PACS). Benchmark testing of the proposed vendors' systems occurred during the summer of 1997. This article highlights the methods for test material and test system organization, the major areas tested, and conduct of actual testing. Department of Defense and contract personnel wrote test procedures for benchmark testing based on the important features of the DIN-PACS Request for Proposal. Identical testing was performed with each vendor's system. The Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) standard images used for the Benchmark Testing included all modalities. The images were verified as being DICOM standard compliant by the Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology, Electronic Radiology Laboratory. The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory prepared the Unix-based server for the DICOM images and operated it during testing. The server was loaded with the images and shipped to each vendor's facility for on-site testing. The Defense Supply Center, Philadelphia (DSCP), the Department of Defense agency managing the DIN-PACS contract, provided representatives at each vendor site to ensure all tests were performed equitably and without bias. Each vendor's system was evaluated in the following nine major areas: DICOM Compliance; System Storage and Archive of Images; Network Performance; Workstation Performance; Radiology Information System Performance; Composite Health Care System/Health Level 7 communications standard Interface Performance; Teleradiology Performance; Quality Control; and Failover Functionality. These major sections were subdivided into workable test procedures and were then scored. A combined score for each section was compiled from this data. The names of the involved vendors and the scoring for each is contract sensitive and therefore can not be discussed. All of the vendors that underwent the benchmark testing did well. There was no one vendor that was markedly superior or inferior. There was a typical bell shaped curve of abilities. Each vendor had their own strong points and weaknesses. A standardized benchmark protocol and testing system for PACS architectures would be of great value to all agencies planning to purchase a PACS. This added information would assure the purchased system meets the needed functional requirements as outlined by the purchasers PACS Request for Proposal.  (+info)

Increased postwar symptoms and psychological morbidity among U.S. Navy Gulf War veterans. (6/466)

To investigate reports on war-related morbidity, 527 active-duty Gulf War veterans and 970 nondeployed veterans from 14 Seabee commands were studied in 1994 with a questionnaire, sera collection, handgrip strength, and pulmonary function testing. The questionnaire assessed postwar symptoms, war exposures, and screened for chronic fatigue syndrome, post-traumatic stress disorder, and psychological symptoms suggesting neurosis (Hopkins Symptom Checklist). Sera were tested with four nonspecific reactant assays: C-reactive protein, transferrin, ferritin, and haptoglobin. Gulf War veterans reported a higher prevalence for 35 of 41 symptoms, scored higher on psychological symptom scales, were more likely to screen for post-traumatic stress disorder, had lower handgrip strength, and had higher serum ferritin assay results. Numerous comparisons of these morbidity outcomes with 30 self-reported exposures demonstrated many associations, but no unique exposure or group of exposures were implicated. Morbidity data are consistent with other postwar observations, but the etiology for morbidity findings remains uncertain.  (+info)

Entitlement to military healthcare--limitations of the NHS model. (7/466)

The Defence Medical Services provide to a British population healthcare services that are funded from taxation and are free at the point of delivery. This paper reviews some principles for determining entitlement to healthcare for the population cared for by the Defence Medical Services. The starting point for entitlement uses the principles under which the National Health Service (NHS) was established. These are then extended to acknowledge the limitations of an NHS model when considering occupational health issues and geographical variations in healthcare provision.  (+info)

Osler usque ad mare: the SS William Osler. (8/466)

William Osler's connections with the sea included a strong family history of seafaring, his own transatlantic crossings (of which there were at least 32) and the occasional use of nautical imagery in his inspirational writings. An unusual Oslerian connection with the sea emerged after his death in the form of a World War II Liberty ship. Through the SS William Osler and its sister ships, Osler was symbolically reunited with colleagues associated with the early days of the Johns Hopkins Hospital. The William Osler circumnavigated the globe in 1943 without engaging the enemy. She was then converted into an army hospital ship and renamed the USHS Wisteria.  (+info)

Rep. Adam Smith (D-Wash) supported passage of H.R. 4546, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2003. The bill, which provides approximately $393 billion for the nations defense programs, was approved by voice vote. It now awaits Senate action before being sent to the president for his approval. Last month, Smith, a member of the House Armed Services Committee, voted to instruct conferees on the bill to agree to Senate language providing full concurrent receipt for veterans, reinforcing the nations commitment to veterans. Unfortunately, some of the presidents senior advisors had pledged to recommend that he veto the defense authorization measure if either more complete concurrent receipt provisions from the House and Senate had been included in the final bill. The Defense Authorization bill greatly improves the quality of life for our men and women in uniform. The bill provides a 4.1 percent military pay raise, with larger pay increases for mid-grade and senior ...

This brief update reviews the recent literature available on fluid resuscitation from hemorrhagic shock and considers the applicability of this evidence for use in resuscitation of combat casualties in the combat casualty care (CCC) environment. A number of changes need to be incorporated in the CCC guidelines: (1) dried plasma (DP) is added as an option when other blood components or whole blood are not available; (2) the wording is clarified to emphasize that Hetastarch is a less desirable option than whole blood, blood components, or DP and should be used only when these preferred options are not available; (3) the use of blood products in certain tactical field care settings where this option might be feasible (FSC, GH) is discussed; (4) 1:1:1 damage control resuscitation (DCR) with plasma: packed red blood cells (PRBC): platelets is preferred to 1:1 DCR with plasma: PRBC when platelets are available; and (5) the 30-min wait between increments of resuscitation fluid administered to achieve clinical

In the present fast-paced and globalized age of war, special operations forces have a comparative advantage over conventional forces because of their small, highly-skilled units. Largely because of these characteristics, special operations forces spend a disproportionate amount of time deployed. The amount of time spent deployed affects service members quality of life and their level of preparedness for the full spectrum of military operations. In this paper, the authors ask the following question: How many force packages are required to sustain a deployed force package, while maintaining predetermined combat-readiness and quality-of-life standards?. ...

Hardback, 50. Medicine and Victory: British Military Medicine in the Second World War is an important and archivally well-grounded study at the intersection of military and medical history that points to a marked improvement in the provision of British medical care during the course of the conflict. Defeat in the early years of the war led to many problems. The level of care available in the field was affected by the disruption attendant on defeat and rapid retreat. In no theatre of the war, however, did the medical services suffer a complete collapse. The planning of medical arrangements left much to be desired, as in Norway and Malaya, but there was no need for commissions of inquiry, such as those which followed the campaigns in Gallipoli and Mesopotamia during World War One. Harrison argues that, although the early campaigns of World War Two permitted little in the way of innovation, they at least provided some valuable experience. During the campaigns in Norway and France, it became ...

For two millennia, tourniquets were the most controversial topic in first aid,6,7 but now they are not-they are an essential first aid tool on the battlefield. This change from controversial to essential was an RMMA, a new beginning for an old device.. As recently as the war in Vietnam, tourniquet use was sporadic as soldiers were trained that tourniquets were a last resort while some military physicians strongly advocated for their use. Neither point nor counterpoint had adequate data to substantiate its claim and published literature largely relied on opinion.. When US forces went to war in Afghanistan in 2001, with the exceptions of a few Special Operation Forces (SOF) units, they went without tactical tourniquets and were trained not to use tourniquets. In 2001, at the onset of hostilities in Afghanistan, none of the other military services had service-wide tourniquet policies or programs in place. As the United States and her coalition partners suffered losses in Afghanistan, attention ...

what a tyranny the US has become. Confiscating potassium iodide while keeping this drug Ex-Rad secret. Release both potassium iodide and Ex-Rad now. The Fukushima 50 deserve it first. They are the volunteer workers at the Japanese nuclear disaster risking their lives on a known suicide mission to stop a full nuclear meltdown--from hitting Japan and hitting the USA. ---- Reports of radioactive contamination and a potential meltdown at the complex have many Americans wondering how prepared our own government would be in the event something similar occurred here. More specifically, could the the health of residents living near a severely damaged nuclear reactor in the U.S. be ensured? Thanks to the advanced work of the men and women who develop our nations military medicine, the answer is yes - but only if the government now takes the necessary steps. In what has to be one of the greatest accomplishments in the history of military medicine, the U. S. military has developed a radiation ...

This web page is intended to provide information and knowledge for planners, designers, constructors and maintainers in the best practices of corrosion prevention. It represents the results of an evaluation of corrosion control challenges and findings of a small, but representative sample size (30 installations) of DoD installations.. The House Report accompanying H.R. 1540, the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2012 (H. Rept. 112-78, p. 293), requested the Director, Corrosion Policy and Oversight (D, CPO) conduct an evaluation of DoD facilities and infrastructure in corrosion matters. The committee states Because the costs associated with Facilities and Infrastructure account for a significant portion of the Department of Defenses $22.5 billion annual cost to address the impact of corrosion, the committee believes that there may be more cost-efficient opportunities for developing strategies for enhancing the sustainability of existing facilities as well as for ensuring ...

Bethune had grown up in Ontario and studied there, as well as in London and Edinburgh. Having seen active war service in France, he too understood the need for discipline when it came to saving lives, but he was also conscious of the futility of healing men only to see them further injured in battle. He would come to see the same futility in treating industrial workers for ailments that would swiftly recur thanks to wretched working and living conditions. Bethune was also an innovator, an attitude that would lead to much frustration in Montreal but to countless lives saved in Spain and China. While being treated for tuberculosis in an American sanatorium, Bethune read extensively about the artificial pneumothorax (AP) process. Developed largely on the battlefield, AP involved inserting a hollow needle between the ribs and through the pleural lining; air was then pumped in, pressing the lung flat and allowing it to rest so the patient could recover faster. Bethune insisted that AP be used on him. ...

Legal Considerations. All restrictions, controls, and DA measures must be governed by the legality of these methods and their impact on the populace. In countries where government authorities do not have wide latitude in controlling the population, special or emergency legislation must be enacted. This emergency legislation may include a form of martial law permitting government forces to search without warrant, to detain without bringing formal charges, and to execute other similar actions. [...] Psychological Operations PSYOP can support the mission by discrediting the insurgent forces to neutral groups, creating dissension among the insurgents themselves, and supporting defector programs. Divisive programs create dissension, disorganization, low morale, subversion, and defection within the insurgent forces. Also important are national programs to win insurgents over to the government side with offers of amnesty and rewards. Motives for surrendering can range from personal rivalries and ...
Sgt. Ismael Villegas was awarded the Silver Star in a San Antonio ceremony Monday, marking only the second time in a dozen years that a member of the Air Force Special Operations Command has been given the honor twice. A combat controller is not only qualified to call airstrikes for Air Force Special Operations, but also is an Federal Aviation Administration-certified air traffic controller.

Democrats and Republicans alike Wednesday warned against knee-jerk calls for an end to aid to Pakistan, reminding angry colleagues that the troubled government remains an essential partner in the war on terrorism.. Since it was announced Sunday evening that U.S. special operations forces had killed Osama bin Laden in a suburb of the Pakistani capital Islamabad, the public outcry against the country has grown. Lawmakers have already scheduled hearings into whether government officials - many of whom lived within miles of bin Laden for the past five years - knew the wanted terrorist was living there, and members of both parties have demanded an end to the more than $1 billion in aid Pakistan receives yearly.. But on Wednesday, several key lawmakers in both parties warned that it is too soon to retaliate.. Theres suspicions that some of the people in the government knew he was there, Congressional Pakistan Caucus Co-Chairman Dan Burton said. Some probably did.. Nevertheless, the Indiana ...
see War Department The Army was created by order of the Second Continental Congress on June 14, 1775. It is the oldest branch of the United States Armed Forces. For the War of 1812 and the Mexican American War, the army was augments by militia forces and volunteers. for the American Civil War, the infantry was kept small in size and stationed on Indian control duties in the west. An entirely new temporary Volunteer Army was used to fight the war. President Theodore Roosevelt modernized the U.S. Army, with the reforms of Elihu Root. Previously, the Army had maintained many small garrisons scattered in the western states to control Indians (which were unnecessary after 1890), and small coastal defense installations near port cities (which were never used). With the reforms, it now had, for the first time in its history, a general staff and advanced training schools to professionalize the officer corps. Even so, the army was amazingly small in terms of world comparisons, as the graph demonstrates ...
