Combat psychiatry : the division psychiatrist( Visual )

1 edition published in 1954 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This film depicts the handling of neuropsychiatric (NP) casualties by a military psychiatrist. The importance of rest, food, drink, and, if necessary, sedation, is emphasized. This is handled as far forward as possible. After the first 24 hours, the man is evaluated. He may be kept another 24 hours, then sent back to combat, or he may need further care. The psychiatrist's assessment of the NP patient takes into account not only his present condition, but his past service record and the position he currently holds. The psychiatrist conducts individual interviews with patients in which the patients can express terror, resentment, and grief. He sees to it that the men engage in sports and games. The psychiatrist also must establish and maintain good relations with the rest of the medical service in his division. The film notes that generally, the chances of returning a man to effective duty diminish with each successive rearward evacuation. The importance of the corpsman in the recovery process is outlined. Shots include scenes of military camps and of casualties being cared for in the admissions tent of an aid station, as well as soldiers suffering from a variety of NP illnesses

Combat psychiatry the battalion medical officer( Visual )

1 edition published in 1954 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This film is an introduction to combat psychiatry for medical officers, line officers, and corpsmen. At sick call the night before a battle, men present with physical symptoms such as upset stomach and headache that signal their mental distress. The medical officer decides, based on his own examination and on information gathered from officers or men in the patient's unit, whether the patient should be sent back to his unit or evacuated. The importance of emotional support is shown. The second reel of this film shows the medical officers and corpsmen dealing with after-action combat fatigue and other casualties. In examining and interviewing the combat fatigue casualties, the medical officers identify those who simply need rest and reassurance versus those having a serious reaction that may require removal from active combat. The implications of this are addressed -- if sent to the rear, a soldier may lose his identification with his own fighting group and develop symptoms that will unconsciously justify his escape from combat. The types of breakdowns that signal that a man should never again be sent to a frontline unit are shown and discussed. The basic principle of combat psychiatry is to treat as far forward as reasonable and return to duty as quickly as possible. Shots include: activity in and around a very small U.S. Marine encampment in barren, rocky terrain; medical officers treating Marines at this same camp
Taro's adventure in health( Visual )

1 edition published in 1953 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Johnny Roth, as the Indian Taro, offers advice to children on maintaining good physical and dental health. Sugar Bowl Pete, wanted for stealing, is pictured on a wanted poster. His hat is a loaf of white bread, his face is made up of candy, cake, pie, and sweets, and his guns are two bottles of soft drinks. Taro explains that Pete is made up of things that can rob children of their health. He advises the children to do as the American Indians did--get plenty of rest, fresh air and sunshine, eat good food, and keep fit and clean. Indian life was hard and those who lived it had to be strong and athletic. Taro illustrates his message by showing the competition, in a movie he was in, between himself and his rival for the position of leader of the Indian scouts. Taro and his rival are seen in an Indian camp getting ready for the race that the chief says one of them must win to become leader of the scouts. The two men begin the race on horseback through the woods and fields, then dismount and swim across a lake. Taro resumes the race, climbs to the top of a mountain and begins the return journey with the other man ahead of him. The two race downhill, back to their horses, and back to camp in the allowed time. The two men then fight to first blood, a kind of wrestling match, which Taro wins. Taro then lectures into the camera on the benefits of good health habits and of taking proper care of the teeth. If children take what Sugar Bowl Pete has to offer, they are asking for trouble. As Taro lists the foods that are good for health and for teeth, those foods are shown

Transportation and evacuation of casualties in a marine division( Visual )

1 edition published in 1952 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In this film, the principles and methods of casualty evacuation in an amphibious landing followed by troop penetration inland are explained. Both animation and live footage are used to illustrate points. The chain of evacuation is outlined from the point at which a marine is wounded through successive rearward installations--battalion aid station, clearing station, division hospital, and transport and hospital ship. The various methods of evacuation are explained and shown--on foot, by litter, by jeep, by ambulance and other ground vehicles, and by plane, helicopter, and boat. The need to be flexible in the face of blocked or unusually long evacuation routes is emphasized. Physicians and corpsmen are seen treating many different kinds of injuries both under fire and to the rear. Litter bearers are seen moving casualties off the battlefield and loading them onto many different kinds of transport. The live footage in this film appears to have beentaken in real battle conditions
