Blood program in World War II by Douglas B Kendrick( Book )

4 editions published between 1964 and 1989 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Medical officers who, like myself, served overseas in World War ll, and who observed the management of casualties with and without the use of whole blood, are peculiarly qualified to appreciate the achievements of the whole- blood program. Its results unfolded before our eyes. In forward hospitals, we saw men saved from death and sometimes, almost brought back from the dead. In fixed hospitals, we received wounded men who once would have died in forward hospitals, or even on the battlefield. We received casualties with the most serious wounds in good condition. With the aid of more blood, we performed radical surgery upon them, and we watched them withstand operation and, with still more blood, recover promptly from it. There are more than the usual reasons for the preparation and publication of this volume on the whole-blood program. A major reason, of course, is the impact this therapeutic advance has had upon medical care, civilian as well as military. Another reason is to keep faith with the multiple personnel who planned and operated the whole-blood program, and with the millions of American citizens whose gifts of their own blood saved the lives of so many American soldiers, who otherwise would have died

Qualification of American youths for military service by Bernard D Karpinos( Book )

1 edition published in 1962 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study deals with both disqualified and qualified youths. With respect to disqualified youths, it presents not only an evaluation of their disqualification rates in terms of their broad causes of disqualification (medical, mental, and moral), but it provides a detailed diagnostic breakdown of the medical disqualifications so that a proper prognosis can be made with respect to their rehabilitation potentials. With respect to qualified youth, it presents certain of their characteristics, pertinent to their appraisal as a military force. The qualification of youths for military service depends on: (a) the statutory provisions, which establish both their liability and the broader standards of acceptability for such service, and (b) the specific medical, mental, and moral standards, as promulgated in special regulations of the Armed Forces.

The Walter Reed whole body counting facility : details of construction, gamma radioactivity in people and foodstuffs, July 1958 to July 1960 by Walter Reed Army Institute of Research( Book )

1 edition published in 1960 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Because of the inherent difficulties in the lowlevel assays of large numbers of bulk samples and the un ertainties in estimating total body burden from excretion levels, a facility for determining gamma-ray activity directly in humans was constructed during 1957 at the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research. This facility includes a large NaI crystal gamma-ray spectrometer and a 4-pi liquid scintillation counter. This location was selected because of population density, and a large hospital complex ensured the use of the facility in clinical medicine and metabolic research. The experiences and techniques of whole body counting are described. (Author)
