The blog site of a former paramedic ('Fla_Medic'), who was heavily involved in the public Health Response to the `Swine Flu’ threat of the 1970’s. You'll find his site interesting, informative and worthwhile to visit!

US MARINE Resource

From the Marine publication:
ImageTHE SHIP’S MEDICINE CHEST AND MEDICAL AID AT SEA
http://www.fas.org/irp/doddir/milmed/ships.pdf

PDF Version 410 pages

U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
Public Health Service
Office of the Surgeon General
2003 Edition

D I S C L A I M E R
The practice of medicine is an art and a science, and is evolving daily as new
discoveries are made. Each individual medical provider is responsible for the
individual medical care provided to each patient. Each provider must assess the
patient and determine the specific clinical needs and most appropriate treatment
for that patient. This book is not meant to be a substitute for medical
practitioners or good clinical judgment, nor does it intend to determine the
standards of medical care in any given situation.

Though efforts have been made by everyone who contributed to this book to
provide the most accurate information, medical practice changes and human
error does occur. Neither the authors or editor, nor the U.S. Government or any
other party involved in the preparation of this book, warrants that this information
is complete and accurate, and they are not responsible for the results obtained
from the use of this publication.

Reference to WEB-sites, publications and other materials does not constitute the
accuracy or an endorsement of them. Furthermore, any reference to commercial
products or services is not meant to be an endorsement by either the U.S.
Government or any other source.

Finally, this publication is not meant to be a substitute for clinical judgment or in
any way to supplant or interfere with the relationship between a patient and
his/her medical provider. --- Continued at link, above---
