ABSTRACT

Pandemic Influenza Clinical and Public Health Guidelines for the Military Health System   [open pdf - 3MB]

"The Military Health System (MHS) must be prepared to rapidly evaluate and effectively manage patients with suspected or confirmed pandemic influenza throughout the entire range of military operations and health care settings. In addition to providing health care, efforts must limit the spread of disease among service members, their families, local communities, and the workplace. These guidelines represent a recommended approach for the MHS with respect to patient evaluation and management, laboratory planning and diagnostics, occupational safety and health for health care and medical research personnel, community disease containment, and patient care and transport during military deployments."
