Medical aspects of chemical warfare( )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 749 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Reflecting the critical threat posed by chemical warfare and terrorism, the Borden Institute has released 'Medical Aspects of Chemical Warfare', the latest volume in the 'Textbooks of Military Medicine' series. A year after the publication of 'Medical Aspects of Biological Warfare' in December 2007, this book completes the update of Borden's 1997 'Medical Aspects of Chemical and Biological Warfare'. Since then, an increasing 'concern for the United States and its allies is that an ever-growing number of terrorist organizations will employ chemical warfare agents in an attack on military forces or civilians. As a result, efforts to prepare for such an attack have expanded and are now supported by the Department of Health and Human Services and Department of Homeland Security, as well as the Department of Defense, ' according to Major General George Weightman, Commander of the US Army Medical Research and Material Command. 'Medical Aspects of Chemical Warfare' is a comprehensive source of the information available on chemical agents, including detailed explanations of chemical detectors and protection equipment, methods of diagnosis, decontamination techniques, established and emerging countermeasures and therapy techniques, and response planning, as well as the history of chemical warfare and casualty management. This book will increase the level of preparedness and response capability of military and civilian practitioners responsible for chemical casualty care. Lieutenant General Eric B. Schoomaker, Surgeon General of the US Army, calls the text 'strongly recommended reading for all military medical personel. ... Many civilian medical professionals will also find this textbook to be a valuable reference as their hospitals prepare for the possibility of treating casualties of an accidental or deliberate exposure.' Written by a team of both military and civilian experts led by the US Army Medical Research Institute of Chemical Defense at Aberdeen, Maryland, the book includes cutting-edge science that has emerged since the first edition to significantly expand diagnostic and therapeutic techniques. The book will provide the medical force with the latest information to help them understand and identify the chemical threat; to plan for response; to protect soldiers, the public, and responders; and to deliver the highest quality of casualty care."--The publisher

Medical supply in World War II by United States( Book )

3 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 560 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The disruption of the national economy and the delay in delivery of military supplies which developed during World War I convinced Congress of the wisdom of industrial preparedness. The National Defense Act of 1920 charged the Assistant Secretary of War with the 'supervision of the procurement of all military supplies and other business of the War Department pertaining thereto and the assurance of adequate provision for the mobilization of materiel and industrial organizations essential to war-time needs.' The italicized phrase conveyed authority for the far-reaching procurement planning program which began in 1920 and continued until our entrance into World War II

United States Army Dental Service in World War II by George F Jeffcott( Book )

2 editions published in 1955 in English and held by 463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dentistry, during the pioneer days of the profession in the United States, had no military status; and there exist only a few unofficial references to dental treatment in the accounts of the first wars in which the country was engaged. A notable exception, however, was the dental treatment accomplished for General George Washington, who experienced dental difficulties during the time he served as Commander in Chief of the Colonial Army and later during his terms as President. Records reveal that Washington had several dentures made by civilian dentists and that he was very much pleased with his dental service. Almost one hundred years passed after the Revolutionary War before there was any official Army recognition of dentistry or legislative action to initiate the organization of an Army Dental Corps. During these hundred years the profession continued to develop and to broaden its scope. The first organized effort to secure dentists for an army was the conscription of these to serve in the Confederate Army in 1864.2 The soldiers of the Confederate armies could not pay for dental freatment in the depreciated currency of the Confederacy since the fee for one gold filling was more than 6 months' pay of a private. Consequently, the Confederate States Congress passed a law for the conscription of dentists who were to have the rank, pay, and allowances to which their position in the Army entitled them, and in addition extra duty pay for extraordinary skill as allowed by The Surgeon General. The rank and pay offered the Confederate dental officers is not recorded. pg 8. JMD

Combat casualty care : lessons learned from OEF and OIF( )

4 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is designed to deliver combat casualty care information that will facilitate transition from a continental US or civilian practice to the combat care environment. Establishment of the Joint Theater Trauma System and the Joint Theater Trauma Registry, coupled with the efforts of the authors, has resulted in the creation of the most comprehensive, evidence-based depiction of the latest advances in combat casualty care. Lessons learned in Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) and Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) have been fortified with evidence-based recommendations to improve casualty care. The educational curriculum was designed overall to address the leading causes of preventable death and disability in OEF and OIF. Specifically, the generalist combat casualty care provider is presented requisite information for optimal cae of US combat casualties in the first 72 to 96 hours after injury. The specialist provider is afforded similiar information, supplemented by lessons learned for definitive care of host nation patients."--
