The purpose of this volume is to provide the detailed instructions required to use the CDC 3600 FORTRAN computer programs developed under this study. Two models were designed to assist in analyzing postattack health consequences. The Aggregate Model can be applied in the study of health-related problems at the area, state, regional, or national levels. The Local Model is designed for single locality studies. The Local and Aggregate Models are of similar design in that each consists of three submodels or programs that provide essentially the same type of output for their respective geographic areas a an Immediate Effects Submodel that covers the period days 0 through 30 during which the medical effort is directed toward improving the prognosis of the immediate weapon effects injuries, b a Communicable Disease Submodel that covers days 31 through 365 and is directed toward prevention and cure of disease epidemics, and c a Physical Demands Potential Submodel that relates the degree of physical recovery of injured andor diseases survivors to their ability to effectively meet the demands of various job or occupational categories over days 31 through 365 postattack. Key inputs to both the Local and Aggregate Models are the expected medical caseload and postattack availability of medical resources with which to treat these casualties. Author
