Abstract:

Variations in morbidity rates were examined in relation to operational conditions and situational factors during overseas deployments of five Navy combat ships. Comparisons of gastrointestinal disorder and trauma rates for various phases of the operational schedules indicated that G.I. incidence is primarily related to specific ports visited while trauma incidence is more a function of time of deployment, operational activity, pay grade, and job assignment.
