M Edmondstone
In 1981, the description of symptoms widespread among his messmates by a Leading Seaman admitted to hospital with pneumonia led to an epidemiological and clinical investigation on board HMS SHEFFIELD, a Type 42 destroyer. It was concluded that all the members of one mess deck were affected by humidifier fever. Simple advice which was given to CINCFLEET staff to keep air conditioning systems running during refits and prolonged maintenance periods is believed to have prevented a recurrence on other ships.

The electrocardiogram (ECG) is the most frequently performed basic cardiology investigation. Correct interpretation of the ECG is vital, both to confirm acute diagnoses such as myocardial infarction, and in the elective setting to diagnose previous or underlying cardiac abnormalities. Normal electrocardiographic parameters for the multiple components of the ECG have been identified and are applied to the general population, but it is acknowledged that cardiac conditioning occurs with frequent and sustained aerobic exercise, in turn leading to physiological changes in the ECG...

REVIEW
J Bakker-Dyos, S Vanstone, A J Mellor
British military personnel are frequently exposed to high altitude (HA) (>1500m). Operations in Afghanistan have occurred at altitudes of up to 3000m and there remains the possibility of rapid deployment of non-acclimatised troops to HA areas. British military personnel also deploy to HA frequently on Adventurous Training (AT) and there are numerous expeditions every year to the Greater Ranges. As such, there remains a reasonable likelihood of the development of high altitude illness (HAI) with potentially life-threatening consequences...

Within military primary care patients may present with testicular masses or acute scrotal pain. The aim of this article is to examine, by means of case studies, the differential diagnosis, treatment and clinical considerations in managing patients in the military environment.

REVIEW
R L Thomas, J G Penn-Barwell, C J Hand
Musculoskeletal injuries of the shoulder are a common presentation in primary care. Injuries to this highly mobile region can have a profound impact on the range of movement, resulting in severe functional limitation. The shoulder can also be one of the more complicated regions to examine due to its high mobility, poor localisation of pain and numerous supporting structures. This article aims to review the anatomy of the shoulder, examination technique and the pathology underlying common acute injuries in order to provide guidance to medical personnel deployed with the Royal Navy and Royal Marines...

B Booth, J Furzeland
Eight patients, whilst on exercise in Albania, presented with a blistering, erythematous and itchy rash, consistent with caustic burns, after living in dense vegetation for a few days. All patients were found to have been living and operating under fig trees and had come into contact with the sap of Ficus carica, which on exposure to ultraviolet A (UVA) radiation, can cause a process of phytophotodermatitis leading to a blistering rash.

Non-Battle Injuries (NBI) represent a significant attritional threat to personnel deployed on operations. Operation (Op) GRITROCK involved personnel deployed across both land and maritime environments and was the first deployment of the Primary Casualty Receiving Facility (PCRF) on contingency operations of this type. This article outlines the incidence, demographics and functional outcome of individuals assessed for NBI by the embarked rehabilitation team. A total of 138 injured individuals were assessed over the period Oct 2014 - Mar 2015...

The polyvalent nature of the three French BPCs creates flexibility for command, especially if two could be deployed simultaneously on the same operation. They each contain an impressive MTF designed into the ship from the initial concept, with a modular ability to function as anything from Role 2 to 3. It is hoped that as part of Defence Engagement the RNMS will be able to exercise on board a BPC. The level of integration between France and the UK with respect to human resources in the medical environment requires further work to ascertain what is feasible, bearing in mind the language difficulties and differences between the training, working practices and even ranks...

3 Commando Brigade’s delivery of pre-hospital (Role 1) care has until now largely been based around junior doctors delivering trauma-based resuscitation and limited primary care from small self-contained Regimental Aid Posts (RAPs). With the drawdown of large scale operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the diversity of potential future military operations, the deficiency of General Practitioner(GP)-led care in the deployed setting has become more evident, and this has driven the requirement for a deployable primary care facility in the form of a Medical Reception Station (MRS)...
