Noncombat related acute and recurrent chronic pain are the leading causes of soldier attrition in modern war, with the return to duty rate as low as 2 percent when these soldiers are Comprar Levitra treated outside the theaters of operation. However, that rate jumps to 95 percent when troops and officers are treated and managed for pain in the field of instead of being sent elsewhere for therapy, according to a new study from a Johns Hopkins anesthesiologist.
"Establishing Bio Primo Methenolone Enanthate pain treatment centers in combat areas gets care to soldiers fast and could dramatically increase the military's ability to maintain troop levels and succeed militarily in places like Iraq," says Cohen.
The report, appearing in the December issue of Anesthesiology, shows that 107 out of 113 soldiers suffering from noncombat related pain were able to return to duty after being treated at the Ibna Sina Hospital in Baghdad between October 2005 and September 2006.
Noncombat pain was defined in both studies as conditions resulting from such things as physical training, sports and accidents.

The majority of these cases did not receive definitive treatment until a few weeks "Oxandrolone Powder India" after their initial complaints."Early intervention is almost always associated with better outcomes," says Cohen. "The longer a pain complaint goes untreated, the worse the prognosis."
Cohen says it is also more difficult to re deploy soldiers once they are medically evacuated, for both logistical and psychological reasons.
