There is no curative therapy for reactive arthritis and management is focused on the treatment of symptoms with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), immunomodulator therapy, and antibiotics if an infectious source is suspected. Medical Stability Operations has evolved into Global Health Engagement in the lexicon of planners but the goal is still the same.
This article used a technical report authored by the RAND Corporation as the basis of a case study of a Special Operations Command Africa (SOCAF) Mission to the country of Niger to build a casualty evacuation capability.
The case study evaluates the utility of a hypothetical framework developed by the RAND researchers relative to the actual events and outcomes of an actual mission.
A second lesson is that the primary cause of preventable death in these types of incidents involving explosives and firearms is massive hemorraghe.
Objective: There is a need to develop a training oriented to citizens so they can identify and use available resources to avoid preventable deaths that occur in this kind of incidents, especially massive hemorrhage.

They were classified into three groups: a group of citizens/ first responders with no prior health training, a group of health professionals, and a group of nursing students. Details will be presented in such a way that the reader can follow along and identify how they would manage the case clinically depending on their experience and environment situation.
Commentary will be provided by currently serving military medical technicians. (Journal Article)Abstract On 3 October 2001, the first chalk of Night Stalkers left Campbell Army Airfield enroute to Uzbekistan in support of what would become our nation's longest war.Results: SOF medics' averaged scores of perceptions of their medic education indicated positive but not completely statistically significant preferences toward reflection-based curricula over traditional curriculum. (Journal Article)Abstract During an assault on an extremely remote target, a US Special Operations Soldier sustained multiple gunshot and fragmentation wounds to the thorax, resulting in a traumatic arrest and subsequent survival. (Journal Article)Abstract Musculoskeletal complaints comprise the majority of cases encountered by military physicians when evaluating young active duty Soldier-athletes.Keywords: Mc Kenzie MR, Parrish EW, Miles EA, Spradling JC, Littlejohn LF, Quinlan MD, Barbee GA, King DR. His care, including care under fire, tactical field care, tactical evacuation care, and Role III, IV, and V care, is presented. This is a case of reactive arthritis in a 19-year-old active duty Soldier-athlete whose failure to improve with conservative therapy initiated further investigation.Improved mean score for at least 75% of a group's members on the posttraining test was considered reflective of adequate knowledge. (Journal Article)Abstract The series objective is to review various clinical conditions/ presentations, including the latest evidence on management, and to dispel common myths.Results: A total of 173 participants (n = 74 men [42.8%]; n = 99 women [57.2%]) attended the training. In the process, core knowledge and management principles are enhanced. Cases will be drawn from real life but phrased in a context that is applicable to the Special Operations Forces (SOF) or tactical emergency medical support (TEMS) environment.Reactive arthritis, though self-limiting in two-thirds of those affected, can become a chronic disabling disease affecting as many as 40 out of 100 patients. (Journal Article)Abstract The 2010 Department of Defense (Do D) Instruction 6000.16, Military Health Support for Stability Operations, established medical stability operations as a core military mission.
