Abstract:

At sea, the Independent Duty Corpsmen 8402 is responsible for the diagnosis and management of illnesses which arise. He must decide whether to treat patient onboard the ship or, if necessary, make recommendations regarding the evacuation of the patient. The corpsmans laboratory facilities are limited and, in most cases, he is unable to communicate with shore-based medical facilities. A computer assisted system to provide medical diagnostic information for corpsmen MEDIC has been developed at the Naval Submarine Medical Research Laboratory NSMRL, Groton, CT. The purpose of MEDIC is to assist the corpsman in the diagnosis, triage, and management of patients who present at sea. When completed, the system will consist of programs for acute abdominal pain, acute chest pain, dental complaints, psychiatric disorders, and trauma. The compute programs are designed for use on an IBM PC or compatible MS-DOS computer.
