ABSTRACT

Occupational Health and the Service Member   [open pdf - 16MB]

From the Preface: "Support for uniformed members is only one side of military occupational medicine. The other side is support for the military industrial base, which provides the warfighters with the equipment and supplies needed to complete their missions. [...] This volume contains essential information for the healthcare teams supporting the industrial base workforce. This volume of the Textbooks of Military Medicine, published in hardcopy and electronic formats, will be a valuable reference for providers who need to address unique hazards on military installations and during deployments, as well as the occupational hazards in our military industrial base. [...] The US Navy and Air Force occupational health programs have been included in this update. Additionally, the content has been significantly expanded to cover a wide range of topics, including beryllium, aerospace medicine, undersea medicine, diving and the physiology of divining, ergonomics, ionizing and non-ionizing radiation, respiratory protection, workers' compensation programs, deployment surveillance, and biomonitoring."
