  • Volume 28 Issue 2 - Warfare, ships and medicine in ancient Egypt and
           Greece
    • Abstract: Westphalen, N
      A previous article described the prehistoric origins of weapons, ships and medicine. Although hominids began using weapons for hunting animals up to five million years ago, the earliest archaeological evidence of their use by Homo sapiens for warlike purposes (as opposed to other forms of interpersonal violence) is only dated to c11,000 BCE. This may indicate how the struggle to survive became rather less dire with the advent of farming and animal domestication from c12,000 BCE, and the ensuing increased differentiation of commodities within and between the first settlements that were considered worth trading and/or fighting for.

  • Volume 28 Issue 2 - Loaded March and force combat performance: Effects of
           heat exposure and previous experience
    • Abstract: Tingelstad, H; Reilly, T; Kehoe, B; Verdon, E; Semeniuk, K; Haman, F
      Purpose: This study investigated the effects of heat exposure and previous experience on thermoregulatory and cardiovascular responses to performing a loaded march in the HEAT and on FORCE Combat circuit performance.

      Methods: Ten civilians (inexperienced) and 10 infantry reservists (experienced) performed a 60 min loaded march ( 35kg), in NORMAL (21+-0.2 degreesC) and HEAT (30+-0.2 degreesC) conditions and the FORCE Combat military physical performance evaluation. Participant groups were matched for morphology and physiological capacity.

      Results: Out of the 10 experienced participants that participated in the loaded march in HEAT, 9 completed the full 60 min but only 5 of 10 inexperienced participants were able to do the same. Performing a loaded march in the HEAT caused a state of uncompensable heat stress (continuous increase in core temperature) for both the inexperienced and experienced participants. Heart rate (134+-12vs143+-9bpm,p=0.027), rate of perceived exertion (13+-1vs10+-1,p=0.05).

      Conclusion: Both heat exposure and previous experience had an effect on cardiovascular, thermal and subjective measures during the loaded march and on completion time of the FORCE Combat circuit.

  • Volume 28 Issue 2 - Infection prevention and control practices in the
           deployed military field hospital: An integrative review
    • Abstract: Skipp, J; Zimmerman, P; van de Mortel, T
      Background: Advances in personal protective equipment, tactical combat casualty care training and improved technologies have led to the increased survival of those injured during combat. However, infection remains a significant complication in combat-related injuries, from initial wound contamination to infections acquired in various treatment facilities.

      Purpose: To determine contemporary infection prevention and control (IPC) practices used to reduce healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) in the Australian Defence Force (ADF) deployed Medical Treatment Facilities (MTFs).

      Method: An integrated literature review was conducted into the IPC practices of ADF and internationally deployed MTFs.

      Results: Thirteen articles were reviewed and five main themes were obtained. For effective IPC, deployed MTFs require IPC-specific standard operating procedures, strict adherence to basic IPC practices, a robust antimicrobial stewardship program and deployed personnel with the relevant expertise and knowledge in IPC.

      Conclusion: Infection prevention and control in deployed MTFs comes with its own unique set of challenges. For deployed MTFs, establishing effective IPC practices and procedures will reduce the risk of HAIs and minimise the risk of further harm occurring to injured personnel.

  • Volume 28 Issue 2 - Measles mortality in the armies of the early 20th
           century
    • Abstract: Shanks, GD
      Measles remained a lethal infection during the early 20th century within the military but mortality disappeared prior to immunisation 50 years later. Historical records were reviewed to understand this transition. Measles mortality in soldiers was largely (>80%) due to secondary bacterial pneumonia but this could be highly seasonal, as seen in US Army recruits at Columbus Barracks 1911-13. The UK Highland Division had a lethal (65 deaths / 529 cases, 12%) measles epidemic 1914-15 but this was highly variable within different battalions. The Australian Imperial Force 1914-18 experienced 103 measles deaths (1.5% case fatality rate) half of which occurred in Australia before deployment. Measles remains highly pathogenic and absence of adult mortality cannot be guaranteed if immunisation rates are not maintained or antibiotic-resistant bacteria continues to spread. The Australian Defence Force must be prepared to deal with measles during possible humanitarian assistance missions despite anti-vaccine propaganda.

  • Volume 28 Issue 2 - The prevalence of prostate, urinary bladder and kidney
           cancer among the homeland war veterans
    • Abstract: Soric, T; Gusar, I; Zekanovic, A; Vidic, I; Dzelalija, B
      Relevant literature mentions exposure to war events as a significant factor in the emergence of not only mental but also physical illnesses. Enormous effort is being put into finding new and better ways of treatment while, at the same time, efforts are expended on the development and acquisition of weapons and other material that could cause disease and adverse health outcomes. The Homeland War in the Republic of Croatia was fought between 1990 and 1995, and it is estimated that over 500 000 soldiers fought in the war. Croatian defenders can unquestionably be singled out as a particularly vulnerable group due to long-term and serious consequences of war-related sufferings. The available data in Zagreb City Office for Health and War Veterans state malignant neoplasms as a leading cause of death among war veterans between 2006 and 2011. Furthermore, the research on disease incidence and mortality of the general population conducted in Zadar County in 2005 puts malignant neoplasms in second place, just after leading cardiovascular diseases, but the research on the veteran population is deficient. Wartime events always cause a large amount of stress associated with the emergence of malignant neoplasms. It is well-known that hormones such as cortisol, norepinephrine and adrenaline, which are released during stressful situations, change the immune status of the body and the ability to fight cancer. Thus, psychological and neurophysiological occurrences in the body are crucial for immune system functioning or the ability of the body to efficiently cope with stressful situations.

  • Volume 28 Issue 2 - The effects of depression on success in male soldiers
           sexually transmitted disease and reproductive health education
    • Abstract: Ozdemir, M; Baysal, HYalcinoz; Ozkan, R; Baysal, A
      Aims: In this study, we aimed to investigate the effect of depression on education regarding sexually transmitted diseases and reproductive and sexual health.

      Methods: The study was conducted in 98 healthy private soldiers. Sociodemographic characteristics were recorded. The participants filled out the 'reproductive health knowledge evaluation form' (RHKEF) and Beck Depression Inventory (BDI) before the two-hour reproductive and sexual health education intervention. The RHKEF was repeated four weeks after the intervention. Higher than the median increase in the RHKEF score was accepted as a meaningful improvement. The effects of study variables and depression status on the RHKEF score change after the intervention was evaluated by using univariate and multivariate analyses.

      Results: Among the study population, 35 soldiers (35.7%) were at risk of depression. The rate of depression was higher in soldiers who were living in urban areas compared with those living in rural areas. The mean RHKEF score increased from 16.9+-3 at the baseline visit to 18.7+-2.2 after the education. There was no association between the change in RHKEF score and depression or sociodemographic characteristics. There was a negative correlation between the age and change in the RHKEF score (r=-0.208, p=0.04) in univariate analysis. In the multivariate analysis, only the absence of depression had a positive effect on RHKEF score improvement. The OR was 2.08 (95% CI: 1.78-3.5, p=0.042).

      Conclusions: The rate of depression risk is relatively high in healthy private soldiers. An education intervention for reproductive and sexual health seems to be beneficial in this population. Depression seems to influence the effects of education on reproductive and sexual health adversely.

  • Volume 28 Issue 2 - Adjunct activities for mental health improvement for
           veterans
    • Abstract: Watt, T; Kehoe, E
      The disruptive and at times traumatic nature of military service can create mental health issues among veterans. Wounded, injured or ill personnel, even if their physical and psychological rehabilitation goes well, can experience an acute loss of purpose and structure that is provided during their military service, especially post-discharge. It is also increasingly recognised that contemporary veterans have unique requirements, and in this context, military personnel often find their traditional medical and psychological treatments are insufficient to address their needs. Fortunately, there is growing evidence that a range of exercises, such as physical activity as well as animal- and art-based activities can serve as worthwhile adjuncts to more familiar programs of rehabilitation and reintegration. There is growing evidence that these activities reduce anxiety, depression and PTSD symptoms - all of which are relevant to military personnel. The theoretical basis concerning symptom reduction includes behavioural, cognitive and neurophysiological theories. Tests of these theories may result in enhanced treatment. This paper will describe these adjunct activities and how they are being implemented with Australian Defence Force (ADF) personnel, with particular focus on the evidence and theories surrounding art-based endeavours as an adjunct to established therapies.

  • Volume 28 Issue 1 - Causes and duration of change resulting from art-based
           activities for members of the Australian Defence Force
    • Abstract: Watt, Tavis; Kehoe, EJames
      "Increasingly, military personnel are being exposed to arts-based rehabilitation activities that have been demonstrated as having positive effects in reducing both depressive and anxiety-based symptoms. However, little is known about the specific processes that are engaged by these activities, as well as the duration of positive effects. This study aimed to uncover the underlying contributors to the positive effects as recalled by the military personnel who undertook a four-week program of training leading to visual, written, musical or theatrical creations, in a nonclinical setting.

      The respondents reported benefits from the program, including sustained increases in behavioural activation, sense of belonging, flow and therapeutic alliance with the trainers during and following the program. Many respondents recalled that the positive effects of the program were enduring, lasting up to 24 months or longer. All four positive effects clustered strongly on a single factor. Most respondents felt they would have benefited from a follow-up activity after the conclusion of the program. Respondents who had a higher core self-evaluation score reported more benefits from the program than those who did not."

           partnerships: Bridging the divide between healthcare professionals and
           practices
    • Abstract: Woodbury, K; Woodward, J
      Many Defence organisations have demonstrated the beneficial outcomes of effective collaboration with external agencies. Research undertaken in 2017 by the Major Extremity Trauma Research Consortium (METRC) advocates for the recognition and adoption of more collaborative engagement between Defence and civilian health professionals. While Defence has a long-standing tradition of senior medical Reserve appointments, which facilitate civilian/Defence clinical exchange, opportunities for interagency training for medics and nurses are less common. The possibility of interagency operations either in the event of domestic crises or offshore humanitarian and disaster response appears to be increasing. In the light of this, interoperability becomes increasingly important. While the initiatives described here are small-scale, they do respond to this environment and demonstrate the transferability of skillsets and the importance of interagency understanding.

  • Volume 28 Issue 1 - Scaffolded clinical skills development for Clinical
           Managers in the Royal Australian Navy
    • Abstract: Edwards, Dale; Young, David
      The Clinical Manager (CM) has been described as a linchpin to the healthcare capabilities of the Royal Australian Navy (RAN). Education and development for this important role has undergone substantial change in recent years, moving from an internally operated course to an externally provided higher education qualification. These changes in education include the manner in which clinical skills training is delivered. It is now embedded into a scaffolded approach that takes the learner from introduction of underlying knowledge to skills trainers, simulation, cadaveric training and whole of sick bay simulation. This article seeks to outline the changes that have occurred in CM education, and describes the scaffolded approach used to develop their clinical skills.

  • Volume 28 Issue 1 - Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder or Post-Traumatic
           Stress Injury: What's in a name'
    • Abstract: Wallace, D; Jallat, E; Jetly, R
      "Background: Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a trauma-induced condition that is associated with high healthcare usage and costs, as well as long-term disability. Enabling those affected to seek diagnosis and treatment and removing barriers to care is, therefore, a significant priority.

      Results: In the last few years, an argument has been made that changing the name of the condition to Post- Traumatic Stress Injury (PTSI), and hence removing the word 'disorder', may remove some barriers to seeking diagnosis and treatment. This paper describes the historical, scientific and medical basis for the use of the existing term, and argues that there is a lack of evidence that altering the name would have an appreciable benefit for affected individuals.

      Conclusion: Serving and ex-serving ADF members and their families affected by PTSD would be better served by holistic approaches to improve education and awareness, encouraging help seeking as early as possible and further high-quality research to improve evidence-based treatment and rehabilitation services that are recovery focused."

  • Volume 28 Issue 1 - 'Plasmodium knowlesi' infection in an Australian
           soldier following jungle warfare training in Malaysia
    • Abstract: Roe, K; Thangarajan, A; Lilley, K; Dowd, S; Shanks, D
      An Australian Army soldier developed a fever after returning to Australia following a three-month deployment to Rifle Company Butterworth, Malaysia. Ten days prior to presentation he had participated in jungle warfare training at Burma Camp, Pulada in Johor, Malaysia. No known direct contact was made with monkeys, which were known to be in the area. Earlier he had stopped his doxycycline chemoprophylaxis for a few days during an episode thought to be due to gastroenteritis. Blood examination showed infrequent Plasmodium species ring-stage trophozoites on thick film. As the ring-stage trophozoites were morphologically different from P falciparum, blood was sent to the ADF Malaria and Infectious Disease Institute at Gallipoli Barracks for species confirmation. The soldier was treated with oral artemether-lumefantrine (Novartis, Coartem) and became aparasitemic in two days. Subsequent nucleic acid studies confirmed the diagnosis as Plasmodium knowlesi, a parasite of macaques. Two weeks following treatment he was admitted to the hospital for glandular fever but was shown not to have had a recrudescence of his original infection.
