Abstract:

The Naval Research Laboratory NAMES III Navy Amphibious Medical Evacuation Simulation Model is a computer program which simulates the operation of multi-echelon medical treatment and evacuation systems. NAMES III tracks the flow of each combat casualty from the Forward Edge of the Battle Area FEBA through the Combat Zone, through the Communications Zone COMMZ and into and through the Continental United States CONUS. NAMES III is a capabilities model, designed to assist the Armed Forces in the development of wartime medical support planning and patient management. User inputs for NAMES III include the patient work load, medical personnel and materiel resources, evacuation resources including ambulances, helicopters, and fixed-wing aircraft, as welll as the configuration of the complete medical treatment and evacuation system. Outputs of NAMES III include patient dispositions, including mortalities, measures of morbidity, and the number of patients returned to duty. Measures of resource utilization, short comings and efficiency are also obtained as output from the model. The purpose of the Executive Summary is to provide new and prospective users a general overview of the model and its capabilities.
