en-USJanuary June 2017 en-US1en-USThe Avian Section of Harris County Public Health en-US (HCPH) Mosquito and Vector Control Division (MVCD) en-US is responsible for monitoring avian populations in Haren-US -en-US ris County and the City of Houston, Texas, for West Nile en-US virus (WNV), St. Louis encephalitis (SLE), and other en-US mosquito-borne diseases. Since birds are the main hosts en-US for many of these viruses, they are included in mosquito en-US surveillance activities to provide a complete picture of en-US the enzootic cycle rather than simply monitoring mosen-US -en-US quitoes alone. While infected birds are only viremic for en-US a few days,en-US1en-US surviving birds produce detectible levels of en-US en-US several years.en-US2,3en-US This persistence allows for a more long-en-US term big picture surveillance effort that can identify en-US the presence of a virus in a new area even if no virus is en-US currently circulating.en-US en-US States was due to large numbers of dead birds, primaren-US -en-US ily crows, in New York City.en-US4en-US Subsequently, wildlife en-US and disease ecologists noted continued large die-offs en-US of crows and Blue Jays as the virus spread across the en-US continent.en-US5en-US Harris County Public Health MVCDen-US en-US created en-US a Dead Bird Hotline for residents to report dead birds. en-US en-US from a dead Blue Jay in 2002.en-US Since WNV has been established in Harris County, en-US avian monitoring helps explain the complex ecological en-US interactions responsible for outbreaks.

Avian antibodies, like human en-US ones, are important to immune responses and make suren-US -en-US viving, seropositive birds essentially resistant to reinfecen-US -en-US tion.en-US6en-US In standard epidemiological susceptible-infected-en-US removeden-US en-US (SIR) models, large numbers of immune indien-US -en-US viduals reduce the viral transmission rate below a susen-US -en-US tainable level, bringing outbreaks to an end.en-US7en-US Although en-US more research is needed, there is evidence that some en-US arboviruses, such as WNV and SLE, follow multiyear en-US SIR cycles. A 40-year history of SLE seroprevelances en-US in Harris County demonstrated a consistent cyclical en-US en-US that the best predictor of WNV activity in a given year en-US was the proportion of seropositive birds at the end of the en-US previous year.en-US2en-US Similarly, in Los Angeles, a preseason en-US seropositive rate of less than 10% was associated with en-US WNV outbreaks.en-US8en-US This study provides the results from en-US the 2015 MVCD avian surveillance activities. COLLEc C TION METHODS Live bird trapping was conducted daily throughout the en-USyear, except when prevented by inclement weather. Trapen-US -en-US ping locations were located in Houston or Harris County en-US parks and varied on a rotational basis. Sites that were en-US chosen for live bird trapping provided the most uniform en-US coverage available, ie, included historic and current en-US WNV and SLE hot spots and provided a high degree en-US of trapping success. In 2015, 27 sites were trapped, with en-US 20 monitored biweekly from June to December when en-USThe Role of Birds in Arboviral Diseaseen-US en-US Surveillance in Harris County and theen-US en-US City of Houston, Texas Lauren Wilkerson, MS H ilda Guzman Martin Reyna Nava, MS R obert Tesh, MD, PhD Cheryl Battle-Freeman M ustapha Debboun, PhD, BCE Amelia Travassos da Rosa ABSTRac AC T Avian arboviral surveillance is an integral part of any disease-based integrated mosquito control program. The en-USHarris County Public Health Mosquito and Vector Control Division has performed arboviral surveillance in en-US the wild birds of Harris County and the City of Houston since 1965. Blood samples from live trapped birds were en-US tested for arboviral antibodies to West Nile virus (WNV), St. Louis encephalitis, Eastern equine encephalitis, en-US and Western equine encephalitis. A dead bird surveillance program was created in 2002 with the arrival of en-US WNV in Harris County. Since implementation, the program has detected considerable variability in viral activen-US -en-US ity with annual WNV seroprevelance rates ranging from 2.9% to 17.7%, while the percentage of positive dead en-US birds has ranged from 0.3% to 57.2%. In 2015, 1,345 live birds were sampled and 253 dead birds were tested, en-US with WNV incidence rates of 16.5% and 5.9%, respectively.


2 en-US help was available, and on a monthly rotation en-US during the rest of the year (Figure 1).en-US During bird trapping, an average of 3 to 5 Japanese mist en-US nets were set up before sunrise and maintained until en-US 9:30 am. The nets were 2.6 m in height and 6 or 12 m in en-US length, and attached to poles that were hammered into en-US the ground with mallets. Nets were positioned in areas en-US en-US and baited with commercial bird seed at least one day en-US en-US-en-US vorable areas included open spaces interspersed with en-US layered vegetation, backyard bird feeders, open trash en-US cans, and picnic tables. Nets were checked at least even-US -en-US ery 15 minutes with optimum trapping occurring when en-US all nets were observed from one central location. Afen-US -en-US ter trapped birds were removed from the mist nets, they en-US were placed in a holding bag, transported to a mobile en-US laboratory station and processed on-site.en-US During processing, we recorded the birds species, sex en-US (if possible), age, and whether or not it was previously en-US banded, as required by the Bird Banding Laboratory. en-US We used theen-US en-US National Geographic Societyen-US Field Guide en-US to Birds of North Americaen-US9en-US along with en-US The Sibley Field en-US Guide to Birds of Eastern North Americaen-US10en-US for species en-US en-USen-US American Birdsen-US11en-US for ageing, sexing, and determining en-US the correct band size. The age of a bird is of particular en-US interest for WNV and SLE surveillance because posien-US -en-US tive hatch year birds indicate exposures that occurred en-US within the current season. After we collected all pertien-US -en-US nent information, we drew blood from the birds jugular en-US vein or brachial vein if it was a dove, because the jugular en-US vein is frequently obscured by engorged skin in doves. en-US We collected either 0.1 cc of blood for smaller (sparrow-en-US sized) birds or 0.2 cc for larger birds (ie, Blue Jays) and en-US added it to a corresponding amount of 0.4 cc or 0.8 cc en-US diluent of 0.9% normal buffered saline in a 13 mm by en-US THE ROLE OF BIRDS IN ARBOVIRAL DISEASE SURVEILLANCEen-US en-US IN HARRIS COUNTY AND THE CITY OF HOUSTON, TEXASen-USFigure en-US1en-US.

Once the diluted blood samples arrived at the en-US MVCD Avian Laboratory, they were placed in a refrigeren-US -en-US ated (4en-US en-US C) centrifuge which ran for 15 minutes at 2,500 en-US rpm. e sera were extracted with disposable transfer en-US pipettes into similarly labeled 2 ml cryovials, which were en-US kept frozen until they were transferred to the University en-US of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston (UTMB-G) or the en-US MVCD Virology Laboratory for testing.en-US Most dead birds were reported to the Dead Bird Hoten-US -en-US line, while a smaller number was reported to the HCPH en-US website ( -en-US port.html). Residents may also bring dead birds to the en-US MVCD Avian Laboratory. Information collected on all en-US birds included the contact information (name, address, en-US and phone number) of the caller, location, condition of en-US the bird, and time and date the bird was found. If the en-US bird was found within 24 hours of the call and appeared en-US reasonably fresh, the caller was instructed to double bag en-US the bird and place it in the freezer or a bag of ice to preen-US -en-US serve it until retrieved by a MVCD technician. In years en-US with large numbers of dead bird calls, 18 additional drop en-US off centers located throughout Harris County were actien-US -en-US en-US its condition evaluated.

Sera samples were screened with the en-US hemagluttination inhibition (HI) test, which detected en-US the presence of viral antibodies, but could not differenen-US-en-US tiate between antibody subtypes. Since some subtypes, en-US such as IgG, can persist for long periods of time, this test en-US cannot be used to distinguish currently infected birds en-US from those that were infected in previous years. West en-US Nile virus and SLE are also structurally similar, causing en-US HI antigens to cross-react. If the titer levels for one virus en-US were 4 times or more titers higher than the other, the en-US virus with the higher titer was considered the causative en-US agent.en-US12en-USen-US was considered positive solely for the causative virus. en-US Samples in which the causative virus could not be deteren-US -en-US mined were listed as WNV/SLE and analyzed separatelyen-US .en-US To determine if the birds were recently infected, the en-US MVCD Virology Laboratory preformed a second test, en-US ie, the IgM antibody capture method, on all HI positive en-US samples. This test does not cross-react and detects only en-US IgM antibodies which are only produced during the inien-US -en-US tial stages of infection, and persist for about a month. A en-US limitation of the IgM test is its potential for reacting to en-US a naturally occurring antigen in the blood of some indien-US -en-US vidual birds, resulting in a false positive rate of approxien-US -en-US en-US results were from combining these tests. For example, a en-US en-US exposed and, most likely, that exposure was within the en-US last month, indicating recent viral activity.en-US Dead birds were initially screened at the MVCD Avian en-US Laboratory with vector and rapid analyte measurement en-US platform (RAMP) test kits, both of which can also be en-US used for mosquitoes. The vector test is a quick dipstick en-US test that detects SLE and Eastern equine encephalitis en-US (EEE) in addition to WNV. While the RAMP test takes en-US longer, it is more accurate and provides quantitative reen-US -en-US sults. For both tests, the birds throat was swabbed with en-US a cotton-tipped applicator. For vector tests, the applicaen-US-en-US tor was swirled in a 0.6 ml vial containing 600 l of en-US grinding solution for 10 seconds. A test strip was placed en-US in the vial and left to mature for 15 minutes.

The dry cartridge was placed into a RAMP reader en-US which provided a quantitative ratio in a range of less en-US than 10 to more than 640. Results of 50 or greater were en-US considered positive.en-US After testing, dead birds were labeled with weatherproof en-US tags, double-bagged and placed in an ultra-low (-62C) en-US en-US -en-US formation on the tags included date, location, species, en-US and MVCD Avian Laboratory number.

RRESULTS The MVCD Avian technicians col en-US-en-US lected a total of 1,345 sera samples en-US and received 358 dead bird calls en-US from 40 species of live bird species en-US and 39 species of dead birds in 2015 en-US (Tables 1 and 2). Sera collections inen-US -en-US creased over 2014, improving upon en-US the 50% increase over the number of en-US samples collected in 2013 and suren-US -en-US passing all previous years since 2009. en-US Of the dead birds called in, en-US 319 (89%) were collected and en-US en-US Fifteen dead birds (5.9% of en-US en-US positive for WNV, while 222 en-US (16.5%) sera samples were HI en-US positive for WNV, 2 (0.15%) en-US were HI positive for SLE en-US and 10 (0.7%) were HI posien-US -en-US tive for either WNV or SLE. en-US Additionally, 2 samples each en-US were HI positive for EEE and en-US Western equine encephalitis en-US (WEE). Of the samples that en-US were HI positive, 25 (10.6%) en-US were IgM positive for WNV en-US and 4 (1.6%) IgM positive for en-US SLE. This represented about en-US 1.8% and 0.3% of all samples. en-US The percentage of HI positive en-US samples for WNV increased en-US slightly over 2014, maintainen-US -en-US ing the generally elevated numbers recorded since 2012 en-US (Figure 2), while the percentage of IgM positives deen-US -en-US creased by half or more (Figure 3). The percentage of en-US positive dead birds also decreased from 2014 (Figure 4).en-US en-US the year (Figure 5). The period of greatest activity was en-US from July to September, 2015. There were no IgM posien-US -en-US tive samples in January. Between 5% and 9% of samples en-US were IgM positive from February to June, 2015. This en-US increased to 11% in July before peaking in August at en-US en-US 2015. More followed, with all other positive dead birds, en-US with one exception, occurring in July and August. The en-US percentage of HI WNV positives en-US peaked in September at 25%. The en-US IgM WNV positives also remained en-US high in September at above 20% been-US -en-US fore falling below 10% in October. en-US There were no IgM positives in Noen-US -en-US vember and December. The last posien-US -en-US tive dead bird was found on Novemen-US -en-US ber 6, 2015. The percentage of HI en-US WNV positive samples was the only en-US metric to remain elevated during the en-US winter months, remaining at around en-US 15% for January, November, and Deen-US -en-US cember 2015. This is not surprising en-US given the persistence of WNV antien-US -en-US bodies and the high levels of WNV en-US activity in 2012 and 2014.en-US THE ROLE OF BIRDS IN ARBOVIRAL DISEASE SURVEILLANCEen-US en-US IN HARRIS COUNTY AND THE CITY OF HOUSTON, TEXAS en-USYear en-USPercentage Positiveen-US20%en-US 0%en-US 5%en-US 10%en-US 15%en-USFigure en-US2en-US.

Area 606 en-US was the only one that had a high en-US percentage of both IgM and HI en-US positives.en-US Most dead birds were reported en-US from the western loop and northen-US -en-US western Harris County, near the en-US towns of Spring and Cypress en-US (Figure 12). Positive birds were en-US clustered in Baytown and near en-US the intersection of highways 610 en-US and 290. Five more birds were en-US en-US northwest of the Sam Houston en-US Beltway and one from the town en-US of Humble. COmpa MPA RISONS TO PREVIOUS YEa A RS en-USwas low, while the percentage of HI WNV positive live en-US birds was high, relative to their historical occurrences en-US (Figure 13). This could be explained by the high prevaen-US -en-US lence of antibodies in the avian population providing en-US protective immunity against WNV resulting in the avien-US -en-US an low death rate, which is reasonably well supported by en-US the historical data. However, high antibody levels did en-US not prevent a high death rate in 2014.en-US en-US birds were particularly susceptible as none had been en-US previously exposed. Although SLE antibodies provide en-US some protection against WNV,en-US6en-US they were at a historien-US -en-US cally low rate of 1.9%. Mortality was high, particularly en-US for American Crows (68.4%) and Blue Jays (66.9%). It en-US took 4 years for antibody levels to peak in 2006 at 17.7%, en-US double the highest annual SLE rate from 1975 to 2001 of en-US 8.4%. From 2006 to 2011, the mortality and seroprevaen-US -en-US lence rates decreased, until antibody levels reached 6% en-US to 5% (Figure 13). In 2012, there was a sudden resuren-US -en-US gence in WNV activity, with mortality rates reaching en-US 2003-2004 levels. Antibody levels jumped to 14.7% and en-US remained high throughout 2015. Recent mortality rates en-US were inconsistent; 1.6% in 2013 and 23.5% in 2014. PROGRam AM E EXpa PA NSION The objectives were to expand and improve the MVCD en-USAvian Surveillance Program in 2016.

However, WEE was en-US last detected in 2011. Most infections were in residential en-US birds. If viral activity conforms to SIR models, Harris en-US County should be entering a low point in the WNV cyen-US -en-US cle. Initial results showed WNV activity was low in 2016, en-US en-US activity will eventually diminish avian arboviral protecen-US -en-US tion, inviting another outbreak. Continued surveillance en-US is needed to determine when this will likely occur. RREFERENc C ES 1. en-USRappole JH, Hubalek Z.

en-USJanuary June 2017 en-US13en-USAedes aegyptien-US (L.), also known as the yellow fever mosen-US -en-US quito, is an important vector of viral diseases such as en-US yellow fever, dengue, Chikungunya, and, most recently, en-US Zika virus.en-US1,2en-US Despite current vector control efforts, the en-US incidence and geographical expansion of these pathoen-US -en-US gens continue to increase at an alarming rate. For exen-US -en-US ample, the incidence of dengue has increased 30 fold en-US over the last 50 years.en-US3en-US The World Health Organization en-US (WHO) estimates 50-100 million cases occur annually en-US in over 100 endemic countries, putting almost half of en-US the worlds population at risk. More than 70% of the en-US population at risk for dengue worldwide live in member en-US en-US region.en-US3en-US As a result, the Department of Defense (DoD) en-US personnel and family members stationed in these reen-US -en-US gions are at risk.en-US Vector control remains the primary defense against en-US vector-borne diseases. Standard preventive deterrence en-US against vector-borne diseases incorporates integrated en-US pest management (IPM) with personal protective meaen-US -en-US sures (PPMs).

Although spatial repellents have shown en-US en-US protection, changing environmental conditions (wind, en-US precipitation, temperature, and humidity) may presen-US -en-US en-US Traditional military approaches to mosquito control are en-US based on the use of insecticides for area-wide abatement en-US and PPM (topical repellents, treated uniforms, and bed en-US nets). However, there is much concern among entomoloen-US -en-US gists that these approaches may be severely restricted en-US in the future due to insecticide resistance. Over the past en-US few decades, there has been an overreliance on the use en-US of pyrethroid insecticides for mosquito control. Global en-US malaria eradication programs depend almost exclusively en-US on pyrethroid-based indoor residual spraying and long-en-US lasting insecticidal nets (LLINs). Although this strategy en-US has been viewed as having an important role in the reen-US -en-US cent reductions in global malaria mortality, major maen-US -en-US laria vectors have developed resistance to this class of en-US insecticides and the resistance alleles are very common en-US in mosquito populations throughout the world. One way en-US to overcome resistance is to rotate different classes of en-US en-US acquisition of other classes of insecticides is often difen-US -en-US en-US -en-US en-US -en-US ily available and are relatively inexpensive. A potential en-US means of slowing the evolution of pyrethroid resistance en-US may be the integration of spatial repellents into the proen-US -en-US gram strategy.en-US40en-US For example, the incorporation of a spaen-US -en-US tial repellent with LLINs would result in a 3-tier line of en-US defense: (1) the spatial repellent, (2) contact pyrethroid, en-US and (3) physical barrier (net). The spatial repellent would en-US provide protection outside of the LLIN and contribute to en-US reducing selection for resistance.

This en-US limited capacity was a result of federal budget reductions en-US that affected funding earmarked for mosquito monitoren-US -en-US ing and surveillance programs. Once a strong program en-US that had a large number of county health departments en-US conducting mosquito surveillance and several trained en-US staff, the program had been reduced to one state level en-US position and a few counties conducting surveillance. en-US This case study describes and evaluates Georgias rapid en-US response from the perspective of those challenges.

With the state of Georgia hosting the worlds busiest international en-US airport, a climate that supports the ZIKV vectors, and limited surveillance (13 counties) and response capacity, the en-US Department of Public Health (DPH) was challenged to respond and prevent ZIKV transmission. This case study en-US describes and evaluates the states surveillance capacity before and after the declaration of ZIKV as a public health en-US emergency.en-US Method:en-US We analyzed surveillance data from the DPH to compare the geographical distribution of counties conen-US -en-US ducting surveillance, total number, and overall percentage of mosquito species trapped in 2015 to 2016.

This data gap is en-US a result of public health budget cuts and lack of priority en-US placed on mosquito surveillance in the last decade. Conen-US-en-US sequently, this negatively affected the states ability to en-US critically assess the actual risks of ZIKV transmission en-US for its citizens.en-USNational Funding Trendsen-USen-US en-US States. The primary mission of public health and mosen-US -en-US quito control programs is to inform, prevent, and proen-US -en-US tect the public from injury and disease.

en-USJanuary June 2017 en-US25 en-USmillion.en-US14en-US A CDC report based on a follow-up survey en-US conducted by the Council of State and Territorial Epien-US -en-US demiologists indicated that since 2005, 22% of funded en-US jurisdictions eliminated active human surveillance, 13% en-US eliminated mosquito surveillance, 70% eliminated mosen-US -en-US quito trapping, and 64% stopped avian surveillance.en-US13en-US en-US Since 2005, the number of counties conducting routine en-US mosquito surveillance in Georgia was reduced by 78%, en-US from 60 to 13 counties, and all public health funding for en-US arboviral testing and avian surveillance was eliminated en-US (R. Kelly, unpublished data*). This report concluded en-US that the states ability to rapidly detect and respond to en-US emerging disease threats is compromised,en-US13en-US thus placen-US -en-US ing states, including Georgia, at a disadvantage in reen-US -en-US sponding to vector-borne diseases.en-USGeorgia Preparednessen-USGeorgia, like many states, faces several challenges to en-US monitoring and responding to emerging arboviral disen-US -en-US eases, with ZIKV highlighting this issue. In addition en-US to the CDC estimating that the range of ZIKV vectors en-US spans the entire state, several additional issues raise en-US the risk of ZIKV transmission. First, Georgia is home en-US to the worlds busiest international airport, thus hosting en-US visitors and tourists from ZIKV endemic countries. Aden-US-en-US ditionally, many Georgia citizens travel to tourist destien-US -en-US nations that have active ZIKV circulating. This raised en-US the risk that a traveler could become infected and return en-US to Georgia, thus spreading ZIKV to local mosquitoes. en-US Second, Georgia lacks statewide suren-US -en-US veillance and vector control which are en-US limited to just 13 counties conducting en-US surveillance and 6 counties providing en-US comprehensive mosquito control seren-US -en-US vices. Third, previous surveillance has en-US determined that en-USAe. albopictusen-US is presen-US -en-US ent in every county,*en-US15en-US en-USbut with limited en-US surveillance, the true distribution of en-USAe. en-US aegypti en-US isen-US en-US unknown having only been en-US recently found in 2 counties. en-US Ae. aeen-US -en-US gyptien-US had been a common species in en-US Georgia until the introduction of en-US Ae. alen-US -en-US bopictusen-US in the 1990s. This lack of suren-US -en-US veillance data prevents accurate quanen-US -en-US en-US the federal funding cuts, the DPH has en-US limited capacity to conduct comprehenen-US -en-US sive surveillance and mapping of vector en-US abundance and evaluate insecticide reen-US -en-US sistance, and limited ability to provide en-US emergency vector control.en-US These challenges are compounded by the fact that Georen-US -en-US gias population is over 10 million people and growing en-US (Figure 2), and has the largest number of counties (159), en-US second only to the state of Texas.en-US16en-US These counties range en-US from urban to suburban, with approximately 108 (68%) en-US en-US -en-US lation).en-US17en-US With the population of the state steadily increasen-US -en-US ing, and a public health program with limited resources, en-US more people are potentially at risk of exposure to emergen-US -en-US ing vector-borne diseases. However, faced with these en-US challenges, the DPH used the expertise of its State Entoen-US -en-US mologist and the environmental health program to evaluen-US -en-US ate its weaknesses and implement a rapid, collaborative en-US response to the threat of ZIKV. PURp P OSE The purpose of this case study was to describe and com en-US-en-US pare the DPHs mosquito surveillance capacity in 2015 en-US before ZIKV was declared a public health emergency to en-US the 2016 surveillance capacity following that declaration. en-US Statistical comparisons were made between years on the en-US number of counties conducting surveillance and differen-US -en-US ences in prevalence and species, in addition to a time en-US trend analysis of mosquito species distribution. These en-US data were used to evaluate the states rapid response to en-US the threat of ZIKV and the risk of autochthonous vector en-US transmission based on the presence of the ZIKV vectors.

26 DPH were analyzed. The geographical distribution en-US of counties conducting surveillance, total number, and en-US overall percentage of mosquito species collected in 2015 en-US were compared to 2016 data. The distribution of counen-US-en-US ties conducting surveillance was mapped using ArcMap en-US 10.4.1 (Esri, Inc, Redlands, CA).en-US Statistical comparisons were made for the 13 counties en-US conducting mosquito surveillance between 2015 and en-US 2016 to test for differences in response before and afen-US -en-US ter the ZIKV emergency declaration. To test differences en-US in prevalence (number of mosquitoes trapped/100,000 en-US population) in both years, the overall number of mosen-US -en-US quitoes was compared using the independent 2 sample en-US ten-US test. A en-US en-US2en-US analysis was performed to test for statistical en-US differences between numbers of species trapped across en-US all 13 counties. In addition, weighted frequency counts en-US of mosquitoes were used to conduct a test of association en-US (en-US en-US2en-US) between the major vector species of mosquitoes and en-US the geographic county in 7 urban counties. The counen-US-en-US ties included in this en-US en-US2 en-USanalysis were Chatham, Fulton, en-US Glynn, Liberty, Lowndes, Muscogee, and Richmond. en-US Lastly, a time-trend analysis was conducted using suren-US -en-US veillance data from 2012-2016 to test differences in speen-US -en-US en-US RRESULTS In 2015, prior to the declaration that ZIKV represented a en-USpublic health emergency, Georgia had 13 counties conen-US -en-US ducting surveillance, with the DPH medical entomologist en-US (one full time equivalent/statewide) providing routine en-US surveillance in 4 of those counties. In 2016 (March-Deen-US -en-US cember), the DPH expanded surveillance to 57 counties en-US (338% increase) geographically dispersed in urban and en-US rural areas (Figure 3).en-US This rapid expansion of surveillance was a result of hiren-US -en-US ing new staff and collaborating with the local health deen-US -en-US partments (LHDs) and the military.

January June 2017 29 en-USWhen ZIKV was declared an international public en-US health emergency,en-US1en-US the DPH recognized its weaken-US -en-US nesses and formed a core team of professionals to en-US develop and lead a response. This diverse team was en-US comprised of EH, medical entomology, medical epien-US -en-US demiology, communications, emergency prepareden-US -en-US ness, and leadership. An assessment was conducted to en-US ascertain agency strengths, weaknesses, and overall en-US needs to develop a response. This evaluation assessed en-US geographical gaps in mosquito data and surveillance en-US staff needs, opportunities for new or expanded parten-US -en-US nerships that could enhance a response and facilitate en-US data sharing, training of existing staff, and funding en-US needs. Leadership made the ZIKV response a priority en-US en-US -en-US cantly contributed to a rapid response. The assessment en-US guided DPH in utilizing those funds to hire additional en-US surveillance staff and assign them regionally across en-US the state, updated existing surveillance and response en-US plans originally written for WNV, provided rapid en-US training to new and existing staff across the state in en-US surveillance and response, purchased equipment, and en-US expanded collaborations with the military to share en-US data and respond to this threat.en-US As the results in Table 1 indicate, DPH successfully en-US and rapidly expanded its surveillance footprint by en-US 338%, from 13 counties in 2015 to 57 counties in 2016, en-US representing 36% of the state. While the overall number en-US of counties conducting surveillance seems low, given en-US there are 159 counties, it should be noted that this rapid en-US expansion occurred in just 8 months (May-December) en-US and all major urban population centers have active suren-US -en-US veillance. In addition, the distribution of surveillance en-US covered all regions of the state. This expansion led to en-US the overall number of mosquitoes trapped increasing en-US by 90.3%, from 2015 to 2016, allowing better decision en-US making. Rapid expansion was achieved because the en-US DPH leadership made the ZIKV response a top prioren-US -en-US ity and streamlined the hiring and purchasing processes. en-US Prior to hiring new staff (March-April), the environen-US -en-US mental health program updated its WNV surveillance en-US and response plan by tailoring it for ZIKV. In addition, en-US a training curriculum, standard operating procedures, en-US job description for surveillance staff, and regions were en-US established. The DPH collaborated with regional public en-US en-US for the new surveillance staff, a critical component for a en-US successful program.en-US In April and May, 5 new surveillance staff members en-US were hired and provided 2 weeks of just-in-time trainen-US -en-US ing on mosquito surveillance techniques and identien-US -en-US en-US communication, data management, and vector control. en-US Each new staff member was assigned a region to cover en-US and provided with surveillance and response equipment en-US (traps, larvicides, backpack sprayers, microscope, educaen-US -en-US tional material). In addition, the state entomologist proen-US -en-US vided ongoing training and consultation throughout the en-US year, and assisted new staff with establishing surveillance en-US sites throughout their region. To assist the new regional en-US staff, the DPH provided training, surveillance equipment, en-US and funding to existing LHD environmental health staff en-US across the state, efforts which were invaluable in expanden-US -en-US ing the surveillance footprint across Georgia.en-US Historically, Georgias mosquito surveillance objectives en-US were driven by the threat of WNV, and mosquito trapen-US -en-US ping was prioritized to capture the primary WNV vecen-US -en-US tor, en-USCx. quinquefasciatus. en-USThis is highlighted in Table 1, en-US with en-US Cx. quinquefasciatusen-US as the highest percentage of en-US mosquitoes trapped overall in 2015 and 2016 at 79.4% en-US (60,423) and 62.5% (90,505) respectively. However, en-US the threat of ZIKV required surveillance staff to shift en-US some focus away from the WNV vector and prioritize en-US trapping in urban/suburban areas to target container-en-US breeding en-US Ae. aegpytien-US and en-US Ae. albopictus. en-US While overall en-US counts and percentages of both ZIKV vectors were low en-US in 2015 and 2016, it is important to note that this shift en-US in surveillance focus is demonstrated in Table 1 by an en-USTable en-US5en-US.

These collaborations were essenen-US-en-US tial because military personnel travel to ZIKV endemic en-US countries and many of them live off base, necessitating en-US a need to partner and share data. In past years when en-US WNV was the focus of concern, the DPH Vector-borne en-US and Zoonotic Section formed a cooperative agreement en-US en-US en-US surveillance and testing data collected within the State. en-US en-US headquarters from Georgia to Fort Sam Houston, Texas, en-US that collaboration was largely lost.en-US In 2016, as mosquito surveillance was being increased en-US in Georgia, a connection with the military was sought en-US again. Not having one central agency made this process en-US en-US individually, but ultimately several connections were en-US made. As one example, Dobbins Air Reserve Base en-US Bioenvironmental Engineers (BEE) partnered with the en-US DPH as part of the Department of Defense initiative to en-US GEORGIAS COLLABORATIVE APPROACH TO EXPANDING MOSQUITO SURVEILLANCEen-US en-US IN RESPONSE TO ZIKA VIRUS: A CASE STUDY

Mosen-US -en-US en-US reduction, and chemical control were used to reduce en-US mosquito numbers in the area and reduce risk to milien-US -en-US tary personnel. Follow up surveillance was done, and en-US plans were made to continue this partnership in 2017. en-US en-US Force News Service as shown in Figure 4.en-US23en-USIn addition, Fort Benning, Fort Stewart, Hunter Army en-US en-US -en-US quito surveillance and testing data with the DPH. This en-US not only provides additional information to the DPH conen-US -en-US cerning disease risks, but also provides mosquito conen-US-en-US trol both on and off the bases with the information they en-US need to reduce mosquito populations and disease risk. It en-US should be noted that Fort Gordon has had a long-standing en-US collaboration with the Richmond County Mosquito Conen-US -en-US trol Program, a division of the local health department. CONc C LUSION The collaborative response to ZIKV allowed DPH to rap en-US-en-US idly increase its surveillance footprint across the state en-US and train new and existing staff on outbreak response. en-US With these new monitoring and response capabilities, en-US the DPH can make sound public health decisions regarden-US -en-US ing disease risks and quickly respond to local outbreaks en-US of ZIKV or other vector borne diseases.en-USEnhanced Capabilitiesen-USThe Georgia DPH was able to rapidly expand its surveilen-US -en-US lance capacity statewide because its leadership recogen-US -en-US nized the seriousness and potential impact of ZIKV on en-US the state and prioritized vector-borne diseases and suren-US -en-US veillance. This allowed the agency to maximize existing en-US resources to expand surveillance capacity and reignite en-US historic and develop new collaborations with en-US various entities, most importantly the LHDs en-US and the military. This expanded surveillance en-US network provided a clearer picture of the types en-US of mosquitoes potentially exposing the public en-US to mosquito-borne diseases and allowed DPH en-US to better quantify risks and provide public eduen-US-en-US cation. Statistical analysis of the data validates en-US the need for ongoing expanded surveillance.en-US In evaluating the risk of ZIKV transmission, en-US recent historic data for the primary vector of en-US ZIKV, en-US Ae. aegypti, en-USwas isolated to just 2 counen-US -en-US ties in Georgia. Expanded surveillance in 2016 en-US en-US Ae. aegyptien-US having en-US been found in just one county, suggesting the en-US primary vector for Zika has been displaced by en-US Ae. albopictusen-US This also suggests a reduced risk en-US of autochthonous transmission of Zika virus in en-US en-US Ae. Albopictusen-US for en-US feeding on both humans and animals. However, en-US this should be interpreted with caution due to en-US unstandardized reporting techniques for each en-US county, lack of systematic surveillance in even-US -en-US ery county, and a dry spring and summer that en-US reduced overall number of mosquitoes trapped. en-US The DPH is working with all counties to imen-US -en-US prove the quality of data reported, and will continue to en-US assess the abundance and distribution of en-US Ae. aegyptien-US en-US each year to evaluate risks. In addition, while DPH exen-US -en-US panded surveillance to 57 counties which comprise apen-US -en-US proximately 36% of the states 159 counties, the agency en-US continues to work with the LHDs to establish additional en-US surveillance sites with the goal of 100% of counties conen-US -en-US ducting mosquito surveillance. This will allow better en-US interpretation of overall mosquito abundance and distrien-US -en-US bution across the state.en-USPublic Health Implicationsen-USBy increasing the number of counties involved in suren-US -en-US en-US -en-US toes throughout the state, the DPH can better predict en-US en-USFigure en-US4en-US.

32 en-USregions of Georgia. However, increasing and maintainen-US-en-US ing surveillance comes with its own challenges, with en-US stable funding being the largest obstacle to a robust en-US surveillance system. The DPH was able to prioritize en-US existing funding to kick start a rapid response and was en-US en-US for ZIKV, but these funding streams are temporary and en-US en-US that funding for monitoring, surveillance, and response en-US becomes a permanent federal funding source, and that it en-US does not follow the same path as WNV funding reducen-US -en-US en-US -en-US pared to respond to the next emerging arboviral disease, en-US and the results could be disastrous for a population that en-US has no natural immunity.

Questions about timing of mosquito monitoring en-US and allocation of resources requires a consideration of en-US what conditions limit adult mosquito activity and ZIen-US -en-US en-US Relative humidity, rainfall, drought, and wind velocity en-US affect survival and behavior of mosquitoes, and thereen-US -en-US fore transmission.en-US24en-US However, temperature is the most en-US important ecological determinant of the development en-US rate of en-USAe. aegyptien-US ,en-US25en-US and one of the principal determien-US -en-US nants of en-USAedesen-US survival.en-US26en-US Temperature also directly afen-US -en-US fects the replication rate of arboviruses, thus affecting en-US the extrinsic incubation period.en-US27en-US What then do we know en-US about how temperature limits en-US Aedesen-US and arboviruses en-US such as ZIKAV?en-US In their review of reports published in the early 20th cenen-US -en-US tury, Bonne-Wepster and Brugen-US28en-US presented data about en-US the effects of temperature on the activity and survival of en-US Ae. aegyptien-US mosquitoes, summarized below: Š enen-US Female mosquitoes were observed to feed most en-US readily between 26C and 35C, between 19C and en-US 25C they are slow to blood feed, and below 15C en-US to 19C they do not feed (Marchoux et al,en-US29en-US Howard en-US et al,en-US30en-US Connoren-US31en-US). Š enen-US Female mosquitoes in Montevideo can continue to en-US bite at 14C to 15C (Cossioen-US32en-US). Š enen-US Adults were observed to die when exposed to temen-US -en-US peratures above 38C, but Davisen-US33en-US reported some en-US adults surviving exposure to 40C during 7 hours, en-US and amongst another group exposed to 45C for 2 en-US hours. Š enen-US At 7C to 9C, adult females may live up to 80 en-US days, and the male up to 14 days (Guiteras; Otto; en-US Newmanen-US34en-US). Š enen-US The female dies within 24 hours, if exposed to a en-US temperature of 6C (Fluen-US35en-US). Š enen-US Dinger et alen-US36en-US reported survival of adult female en-US mosquitoes kept for 6 days at 5C.en-US More recently, in Saudi Arabia, Khormi et alen-US37en-US found that en-US the minimum temperature range of 18C to 25C is suiten-US -en-US able for en-US Ae. aegyptien-US survival, and the survival rate increasen-US -en-US es up to 38C.

However, en-US a study by Goo et alen-US53en-US indicates that the thermal stability en-US of some ZIKAV strains, including those involved in reen-US -en-US cent outbreaks, falls between those of DENV and WNV.en-US Remotely sensed temperature data is freely available en-US from multiple sources as both near-real time recordings en-US and forecast predictions.

We chose to be en-US conservative, using temperatures at the extremes of the en-US reported suitable temperature range, and maximum en-US rather than mean air temperatures.en-USHuman Population Dataen-USIn order to more fully understand the potential impact of en-US ZIKAV risk to military and nonmilitary personnel and en-US their families in and around each facility, we explored en-US risk in terms of human population data, with the folen-US -en-US en-US Ae. aegyptien-US en-US and en-US Ae. albopictusen-US is in the order of hundreds of meters en-US onlyen-US ,en-US60,61en-US and each facility would differ in the average en-US distance that human carriers of ZIKAV would routinely en-US travel to and from each facility. Additionally, some faen-US -en-US cilities were remote, while others were adjacent to or en-US enclosed within urban and suburban areas. To address en-US these complications, we created a buffer of 5 km around en-US all facility polygons to capture the human population en-US density according to LandScan 2011.en-US62en-US This was accomen-US -en-US plished using the LandScan raster and the Buffer and en-US Sum output in the Zonal Statistics as Table tools in Arcen-US -en-US Map.

The risk estimation and alert en-US system had to be in a format that was readily underen-US -en-US standable and easily accessible by military users, who en-USoften have information system security restrictions or en-US bandwidth caps. We chose MS Excel (Microsoft Corp, en-US Seattle, WA), as a universal platform for performing en-US calculations and reporting results.

Appendix C of the NMCPHC guideen-US70en-US is en-US a chart to determine the risk of infection on an instalen-US -en-US lation and when to apply vector control measures.

We believe the Excel spreadsheet risk tool to be en-US a valuable adjunct to the NMCPHC plan, as it would en-US en-US and the judicious deployment and timing of entomologien-US -en-US cal resources. Each military facility is unique and varies en-US in size, function, human density, and suitable mosquito en-US habitat, so not all of the 733 facilities addressed in this en-US study will be at risk of mosquito-borne disease and suiten-US -en-US able candidates for mosquito surveillance. However, in en-US any case, all locations should be useful as points of refen-US -en-US erence for other nearby locations where mosquito suren-US -en-US veillance is conducted.en-US Development of the Zika Risk Code in Figure 1 derived en-US some inspiration from Figure 3 of Fischer et al,en-US71en-US who en-US combined models of vector habitat suitability with temen-US -en-US perature categories for CHIKV replication to produce a en-US matrix of climate related risk classes.en-US It is important to note that each data source used in this en-US analysis has the potential for errors which should be conen-US -en-US sidered when determining risk.

There were 4 pools positive for WNV: one en-US each on October 2 and 9, 2013; August 29, 2014; and en-US September 16, 2015. We validated the October 9, 2013 en-US results with both the RAMP and VecTOR Test Systems en-US WNV assays. The RAMP scores ranged from 150 to the en-US maximum limit of 740. Both pools tested by RT-PCR en-US were positive with cycle threshold scores of 18.14 and en-US 21.04 respectively which was less than the viral culture en-US positive controls. The 919 base-pair sequence of WNV en-US envelope protein was a 100% match to WNV isolate en-US Spain/2010/H-1b (GenBank # JF719069).en-US In addition, 2 pools of combined en-USCxen-US en-US perexiguusen-US and en-USCxen-US en-US pipiensen-US from June 18 and 25, 2014, tested strongly posien-US -en-US tive for an en-US Alphavirusen-US on the VecTOR Test System assay. en-US en-US Sindbis is the detectable virus in the region.en-US13 COmm MM ENT We detected West Nile and Sindbis viruses in pools en-USof en-US Culexen-US spp. from Incirlik AB. The WNV was in the en-US Western Mediterranean WNV subtype in the WNV linen-US -en-US eage 1 based on sequence similarity.

This indicates that the vien-US -en-US rus circulates at some regularity and could pose a threat en-US to both active duty, contractors, civilian personnel, and en-US dependents. We separated mosquito collection data been-US -en-US tween sewage or waste water treatment plants and resien-US -en-US dential areas and detected infected mosquitoes in both en-US areas. This virus requires avian hosts for the natural en-US enzootic cycle but mosquitoes can be transovarially inen-US -en-US fected.en-US22en-US We could not determine the route of infection en-US in mosquitoes from Incirlik AB.en-US en-US in the Middle East. Detection of 2 potentially serious en-US arbovirus threats on a military base in southern Turkey en-US could raise concerns for similar disease threats in neighen-US -en-US en-US with little to no infrastructure. Infections by either West en-US Nile or Sindbis virus often lead to mild disease but can en-US lead to fatal or debilitating infections and might result in en-US costly medical evacuations.en-US In summary, we reviewed 6 years (2011-2016) of WNV en-US and SINV detection in mosquitoes from Incirlik AB. en-US Culexen-US en-US perexiguusen-US was the most commonly associated en-US mosquito with WNV from the base. It is a member of the en-US Cxen-US en-US univittatusen-US Theobald complex and several of these en-US have previously been associated with both WNV and en-US SINV with evidence of vertical transmission of WNV.en-US23en-US en-US Our surveillance data suggests that there are repeated en-US and predictable threats from WNV and possibly SINV en-US on the base.

Although there is tremendous overlap between en-US PTSD and shell shock in several ways, it is important to en-US acknowledge that patients can also develop PTSD withen-US -en-US out evidence of TBI or head trauma.

The clinical presentation of CTE en-US varies, and often overlaps with other neuropsychologien-US -en-US cal disorders including Alzheimers, Parkinsons, and en-US PTSD. Patients with CTE often exhibit both cognitive en-US and behavioral impairment including chronic headen-US -en-US en-US -en-US sion, depression, suicidal tendencies, and also demenen-US -en-US tia.en-US14,15en-US Behavioral changes are typically seen earlier in en-US the disease, and these patients may often be diagnosed en-US with PTSD. Later in the disease process, patients show en-US symptoms such as memory loss and cognitive decline en-US consistent with dementia.en-US Chronic traumatic encephalopathy is a newly recogen-US -en-US en-US -en-US en-US postmortem. It is often regarded as a disease that deen-US -en-US velops from repetitive head trauma in athletes, such en-US as football players and wrestlers, who suffer multiple en-US concussive injuries. However, new data suggests milien-US -en-US tary personnel may be at risk for developing CTE, and en-US en-US the neuropathologic changes seen in CTE.en-US16en-US Brain paen-US -en-US thology of postmortem athletes who have suffered reen-US -en-US petitive concussive injuries have demonstrated distinct en-US neuropathologic changes that differentiate CTE from en-US other known forms of dementia.en-US15-17en-US Comparison of en-US brains from postmortem military veterans exposed to en-US blast injuries demonstrated neuropathology that was en-US indistinguishable from the neuropathology of young en-US athletes with CTE.en-US16en-US Furthermore, experiments on roen-US -en-US dents exposed to an isolated blast-related injury demonen-US -en-US strated neuropathology similar to that of patients found en-US to have CTE from repetitive head trauma.en-US16 en-USThis study en-US in rodents also showed that TBI from blast-related head en-US injuries resulted in progressive neurodegeneration that en-US continued for more than one year after the initial injury. en-US These studies demonstrate that isolated blast-associated en-US TBIs could trigger the development of CTE-like sympen-US -en-US toms and neuropathology.en-US16 COmm MM ENT Traumatic brain injury is a serious public health con en-US-en-US en-US our military troops have a greater risk of TBIs due to en-US the increased use of improvised explosive devices and en-US subsequent blast-related injuries. Evidence shows that a en-US mild TBI is a risk factor for developing long-term neuen-US -en-US ropsychiatric conditions such as PTSD, dementia, and en-USeven CTE. Since CTE is a newly discovered disease that en-US en-US be overlooked as a differential diagnosis and mistaken en-US for other neuropsychiatric diseases. Chronic traumatic en-US encephalopathy should be considered in patients that en-US have a previous history of a TBI and are being evaluen-US -en-US ated for a neuropsychiatric disorder. Furthermore, the en-US diagnosis of CTE may better explain the development of en-US symptoms in veterans found to have shell shock, PTSD, en-US or other forms of dementia. Any patient with a history en-US of TBI should be counseled and closely followed to enen-US -en-US sure appropriate care and social support. With increasen-US -en-US ing awareness that military service members are at risk en-US for TBI-related neurodegenerative diseases, further reen-US -en-US search into diagnostic studies, preventive strategies, and en-US eventually therapeutic interventions is essential for the en-US wellbeing of our veterans.

These may be associated with heredity, personal en-US risk factors such as smoking, normal aging, or the result en-US of their occupational exposures. When someone develen-US -en-US ops a serious illness, it is common for them to review en-US their past to look for a potential cause. This is human en-US nature and part of the why did this happen to me? asen-US -en-US sessment. For many, their military deployments are likeen-US -en-US ly to be considered. Deployments represent changes to en-US routines such as eating and sleeping and lack of control en-US over daily life, and may also include changes in hygiene en-US and unpleasant exposures to things such as trash burnen-US-en-US ing; old, abandoned warehouses and industrial sites; and en-US sources of radiation. For many, a deployment may be the en-US most unusual and noteworthy experience in their memen-US -en-US ory. Therefore, it is not uncommon for returning service en-US members to ask their health care providers whether or en-US not the deployment was a factor in their illness. Associaen-US -en-US tions between exposures to burning trash, blowing sand en-US (particulate matter), old chemical weapons, and subseen-US -en-US quent illnesses have been considered following Operaen-US -en-US tions Iraqi Freedom, Enduring Freedom, and New Dawn. en-US Generally, few clear associations have emerged.

The magnitude of en-US the association measures how much increased risk of an en-US outcome can be associated with the exposure. Avoidance en-US of the exposure should then result in a proportionally en-US lowered risk for the outcome. Thus, one aim of public en-US health is to optimize health by limiting hazardous expoen-US -en-US sures. There are several different types of studies which en-US may be conducted, the selection of which depends on en-US the study question(s) being addressed, the frequency of en-US the exposure(s), and outcome(s) of interest, as well as en-US the expected strength of association between them, the en-US current state of knowledge related to the topic at hand, en-US en-US practicality and ethical considerations.en-USCross-sectional Studiesen-USA cross-sectional studyen-US en-US attempts to assess exposure and en-US outcome at the same time. It provides a snapshot view en-US (cross-section) of disease patterns in the population of en-US interest while assessing the degree of presumed or docuen-US -en-US mented exposure.en-US2en-USen-US study is that the snapshot captures only one moment in en-US time, and by looking at exposure and outcome at the same en-US time, it is not always possible to say with certainty that en-US the exposure en-USprecededen-US the outcome. This is a noteworthy en-US limitation of cross-sectional studies due to the fact that in en-US order to draw conclusions about exposure-outcome cauen-US -en-US en-US -en-US rect temporal sequencing. Also, because cross-sectional en-US studies are a snapshot, cases of illness can be counted en-US only if present at the time of the look, which presents en-US another disadvantage of this study design: it tends to en-US identify prevalent cases of long duration and may miss en-US capturing individuals who are lost to follow-up shorten-US -en-US ly after the outcome is established or acute outcomes en-US among individuals who recover quickly. Advantages of en-US cross-sectional studies include high generalizability and en-US minimal resource requirements, relatively speaking, due en-US to the fact that they can be conducted quickly.en-US An example of a cross-sectional study would be testing en-US pulmonary function in service members exposed to paren-US -en-US ticulate matter levels in the desert at the time of exposure. en-US The aforementioned limitation would be highlighted if a en-US unit demonstrated some impairment in pulmonary funcen-US -en-US tion, as it would not be possible to say for certain that it en-US was due to in-theater particulate matter exposure.

This study type is suitable when the at-risk popen-US -en-US en-US en-US en-US easy to identify the exposed versus the unexposed. The en-US advantages of this method are that accurate measures of en-US exposure are possible before the outcome occurs, and en-US that multiple outcomes can be monitored. A source of en-US bias in these studies is that the knowledge of exposure en-US status may alter the follow-up and subsequent diagnosis. en-US Other limitations include the fact that many years may en-US pass between exposure and outcome, which makes the en-US study costly, increases the likelihood of losing people to en-US follow-up, and is particularly impractical when looking en-US at rare diseases or diseases with long latency periods, en-US such as cancer. An unexposed population is used to proen-US -en-US vide a comparison rate for the health effects of interest. en-US However, it is critical that the exposed and unexposed en-US populations differ only with respect to exposure status, en-US something that is not always easily accomplished. To alen-US -en-US leviate some of the limitations, en-USnonconcurrenten-US or en-USretroen-US -en-US spectiveen-US en-US cohorten-US studies are often performed. This type en-US of study reconstructs exposed and unexposed groups en-US based on exposure in the past. These groups are then en-US compared with respect to the rate of the outcomes of en-US interest. The chief advantage is that since exposure ocen-US -en-US en-US develop may have already passed. The disadvantage ocen-US -en-US en-US occurrence.en-US3en-US For example, to study the effects of burn en-US pit exposure on the respiratory system, health outcomes en-US en-US with burn pits were compared to individuals who were en-US at base camps without burn pits. One key limitation was en-US that exposures associated with the burn pits had not en-US been well characterized.en-US4en-USCase-control Studiesen-USThe case-control method consists of identifying people en-US with the disease of interest (cases), and people without en-US the disease (controls). The unknown variable to be asen-US -en-US certained is the type, frequency, and duration of past en-US exposure(s). Critical to the validity of a case-control en-US study is careful selection of controls, in that they come en-US from the same population as the cases and exposed and en-US unexposed controls have the same likelihood of been-US -en-US ing selected for inclusion.en-US5en-US This type of study is useful en-US en-US the disease is rare and the exposure common, and alen-US -en-US though only one disease can be investigated at a time, en-US multipleen-US risk factors can be assessed. The major weaken-US -en-US ness of this method is that exposure is investigated en-US after disease status is established. This leads to recall en-US bias, where those who are diseased are more likely to en-US remember and report exposures than are those in good en-US health. Furthermore, accuracy can be particularly chalen-US -en-US lenging when conducting case-control studies due to the en-US fact that relevant exposures may have occurred many en-US en-US en-US association between deployment and the development en-US en-US cancer cases with controls who have no such diagnosis. en-US The main variable to be assessed would be whether or en-US not the cases had a stronger history of deployment. FFacAC TORS W WHIc C H AFFEc C T THE S SUcc CC ESS OF S STUDIES Given that these study designs each have strengths and en-USweaknesses, other factors affect the ability of any given en-US study to accomplish what it sets out to dosupport or en-US refute an association between an exposure and an outen-US -en-US en-US environmental epidemiology studies. Illustrating this en-US en-US Institute of Medicine (IOM) to form a committee, its en-US main charge being a determination of the association en-US between exposure to burn pits during deployment in en-US support of Operations Enduring and Iraqi Freedom and en-US subsequent long-term health effects.en-US6en-US en-US Although the IOM en-US en-US -en-US mittees conclusions regarding feasibility and design en-US en-US the major challenges of any epidemiologic study to be en-US both exposure assessment and outcome ascertainment. en-US Regardless of type of study selected, the committee reen-US -en-US iterated the elements characteristic of any well-designed en-US epidemiological study, including selection of a relevant en-US study population of adequate size, comprehensive asen-US -en-US sessment of exposure, careful evaluation of health outen-US -en-US comes, reasonable methods for controlling confounding en-US and minimizing bias, appropriate statistical analyses, en-US and adequate follow-up time.en-USMagnitude of the Disease Risken-USIf an exposure is strongly associated with an outcome, en-US following a group of people who are exposed and comen-US-en-US paring their incidence of illness with that of a group en-US without the exposure allows one to calculate the excess en-US THE ARMY MEDICAL DEPARTMENT JOURNAL

en-US108 en-US which can be attributed to the exposure. This is the en-US cohort study design. For example, nonsmoking physien-US -en-US cians in England were compared with smoking physien-US -en-US cians, and followed over time to count the number of en-US lung cancers in each group. It became clear that cigaen-US -en-US rette smoking was associated with a risk of lung cancer, en-US perhaps 10 times greater than that seen in nonsmokers.en-US7en-US en-US In this study design, accurate information about the en-US magnitude of exposure is collected for all individuals en-US and all individuals should be followed for a period of en-US en-US .en-US If an exen-US -en-US posure produces a risk which is 4, 5, or even 10 times en-US greater than in people without the exposure, it is relaen-US -en-US tively straightforward to sort this out and quantify the en-US risk. In contrast, lung cancer risk from passive smoke en-US exposure is thought to be elevated to less than 2 times en-US that of nonexposed individuals.en-US8en-US This small difference en-US en-US with only a slightly elevated risk, that risk sometimes en-US blurs into the baseline upon investigation. This is due en-US to the fact that in order to detect a slightly elevated risk, en-US one must be able to distinguish it from the baseline, or en-US usual incidence of the outcome without any exposure. en-US This is the role of control groups. However, small risks en-US require that the studies include large numbers of people en-US en-US large numbers of service members deployed in the most en-US en-US be if the outcome is particularly rare. Typically, the inen-US-en-US creased risk associated with environmental exposures en-US is estimated to be small. It has been estimated that the en-US probable range of increased risk for an outcome due to en-US chronic, low level exposure is less than 2 times that of en-US someone without the exposure.en-US8en-US This has implications en-US for the number of people necessary in each group in oren-US -en-US der to detect a difference. This is especially so when en-US competing exposures such as smoking may lead to a en-US much higher elevation of risk, so the role of smoking en-US would have to be thoroughly assessed.en-USMagnitude of the Exposureen-USDetection of effects associated with exposure is also en-US en-US is great. Excess numbers of leukemias were easily deen-US -en-US tected following the exposure to radiation from atomic en-US bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki because en-US the magnitude of exposure was so large.en-US9en-US High doses of en-US radiation are strongly associated with leukemia as an en-US outcome. In contrast, environmental exposures are clasen-US -en-US sically smalldoses lower than those known to produce en-US effects in animal studies. Often the exposures may be en-US chronic low-level exposures, occurring over weeks or en-US en-US they were not recognized.en-US10en-US Although some studies ask en-US individuals about whether or not they were exposed, they en-US do not always know. This can lead to en-US en-US biasen-US en-US-en-US en-US causal interpretations about their outcomes. One study en-US evaluated health outcomes for service members who en-US en-US for several weeks in Iraq.en-US11en-US The exposed group includen-US -en-US ed individuals within a 50 km radius of the site, based on en-US satellite images of the plume and rosters of units in the en-US area. However, some individuals may not have been presen-US -en-US en-USDose-response Relationshipen-USAn axiom of toxicology states, The dose makes the en-US poison. The implication of this is that the larger the en-US dose, the larger the effect. Associations between expoen-US -en-US sures and outcomes are strengthened when this relationen-US -en-US ship can be shown to be logical and uniform. This does en-US not necessarily mean that the greater the exposure, the en-US sicker the individual, but that more outcomes (eg, more en-US cases of cancer) occur in the higher exposure groups as en-US compared with those less exposed. For example, more en-US lung cancers would be expected in groups of individuen-US -en-US als who smoke 3 packs of cigarettes a day for 20 years en-US versus one pack a day for 5 years. This introduces again en-US the requirement for accurate, quantitative exposure data. en-US en-US -en-US posures in deployed settings. For example, the study en-US looking at health outcomes associated with having deen-US -en-US ployed to a base camp with a burn pit was reviewed en-US by the IOM for their report, Long Term Health Conseen-US -en-US quences of Exposure to Burn Pits in Iraq and Afghanien-US -en-US stan.en-US4en-US One of their criticisms was that the study did not en-US identify those with the highest exposures, such as those en-US who guarded the burn pits, compared to those with lessen-US -en-US er exposures.en-US6en-US However, this information on individuals en-US was not available. In another example, the study of the en-US health outcomes associated with those who were under en-US en-US en-UStinguish individuals who were at locations with higher en-US levels of exposure versus those at locations which were en-US en-US11en-US This is because the inforen-US -en-US mation on exact daily locations of individuals was not en-US available. Efforts must be made to accurately measure en-US en-US -en-US cient sampling capabilities at the location of an expoen-US -en-US sure, particularly an unplanned one, is a daunting task.en-USControlling for Confoundingen-USConfounding occurs when an association between exen-US -en-US posure and outcome is over or underestimated due to a en-US third factor. It is best explained by example. Studies have en-US shown that smoking causes an increase in pancreatic en-US CHALLENGES OF PRACTICING ENVIRONMENTAL EPIDEMIOLOGY IN THE US MILITARY

He questioned cases with cancer and controls en-US about coffee consumption and found that cases had a en-US greater history of exposure to coffee. He concluded that en-US coffee consumption was associated with an increased en-US risk of pancreatic cancer. Critics challenged his conen-US -en-US clusion by pointing out that those who drink coffee are en-US more likely to smoke as well, and that by not questioning en-US subjects about smoking behaviors and adjusting for it, he en-US was in effect seeing the association between cigarettes en-US and pancreatic cancer, not coffee and pancreatic canen-US -en-US cer.en-US12en-US Cigarette smoking, the unmeasured true risk exen-US -en-US posure, was the confounder. In many studies of deployen-US -en-US ment and health outcomes, individual smoking status is en-US unavailable. Furthermore, the rate of smoking has been en-US shown to increase on deployments. Since outcomes such en-US as respiratory conditions and cancer are strongly associen-US -en-US ated with smoking, it is an important variable to consider.en-USLatency Perioden-USThe job of the epidemiologist is easier when the time en-US from exposure to outcome is short. This time is called en-US the latent period. An exposure to high levels of chloen-US -en-US rine gas leads quite quickly to respiratory distress. Inen-US -en-US ferring the association between exposure and outcome en-US is relatively clear. The same is true in that exposure to en-US someone with measles is quickly followed by measles en-US in a susceptible person, and ingestion of contaminated en-US food quickly leads to gastrointestinal illness in those en-US who ingest it. An outbreak or cluster of outcomes is en-US en-US -en-US ciations ensue.en-US en-US conditions are not met. Cancer outcomes typically have en-US latent periods on the order of decades. This presents en-US en-US forgotten because it does not lead to an acute outcome; en-US en-US may have elapsed that the individual no longer recalls en-US the exposure, or that the past dose or magnitude of the en-US exposure can only be estimated by memory.en-US10en-US This, as en-US mentioned, leads to recall bias.en-USSpecificity of the Health Effecten-USPhocomelia, the congenital absence of the proximal part en-US of a limb, is an uncommon defect in infants. When inen-US -en-US fants were seen to have this defect in greater than exen-US -en-US pected numbers, mothers were questioned about the use en-US of medications during pregnancy. It became apparent en-US that infants with the defect were more likely to be born en-US to women who had taken Thalidomide, compared with en-US women who had not.en-US13en-US In this instance, the outcome was en-US en-US these mothers to compare with mothers who had noren-US -en-US mal outcomes, and compare their prenatal exposures. en-US Another classic example was when occupational health en-US physicians noticed an increased incidence of an unusual en-US liver cancer called angiosarcoma in certain workers and en-US determined that they had an increased history of expoen-US -en-US sure to vinyl chloride. The key was that the outcome was en-US one with few other causes. Legionnaires disease was en-US discovered and described because an unusual pneumoen-US -en-US nia developed with high frequency in a group of men at en-US a convention in a single hotel, and was linked to the air en-US conditioning system.en-US14en-US Hantavirus illness in the southen-US -en-US en-US -en-US cian became alarmed that 2 cases of fatal respiratory illen-US -en-US ness occurred one week apart. Suspicion was raised that en-US there was some common exposure.en-US15en-USWhen the effect of a low-level hazardous exposure is en-US en-US effects from varied causes to the exposure. Individuals en-US who have registered for the burn pit registry have reen-US -en-US ported diverse medical conditions.en-US16en-US This is likely been-US -en-US cause they are reporting all health conditions that they en-US en-US to determine which effects might be associated with an en-US exposure. The lack of a comparison group made it difen-US -en-US en-US redeployed service members who were veterans of the en-US en-US health effects resulting from their exposures in 1991.en-US17en-USEvaluating the relationship between health effects that en-US en-US -en-US sures can also be challenging. Exposures to solvents, en-US which are metabolized in the liver, can lead to elevaen-US -en-US tions of liver enzymes in the blood, but so can a host of en-US other chemicals including alcohol and acetaminophen en-US (en-US confoundingen-US ). Respiratory symptoms may follow exen-US -en-US posure to burn pit smoke, dust storms, or other factors. en-US The investigations which attempt to relate exposures to en-US effects must take into account other possible exposures en-US and question the individuals about these and control for en-US these in the data analysis. MEa A SUREm M ENT OF H HEa A LTH E EFFEc C T When studying health effects, it is important to consider en-UShow the effect is measured. In some studies, health efen-US -en-US fects were measured as symptoms reported by the study en-US participants. en-US Reporting biasen-US may occur when people en-US with concerns report their symptoms.en-US1en-US Studies which en-US use databases that report disease by diagnostic codes are en-US subject to problems with miscoding.

110 subject to unique limitations. For example, acute en-US changes in health status during deployment due to exen-US -en-US posures in theater could be missed. Likewise, changes en-US in health status that occur over the long-term could be en-US delayed beyond the available follow-up period and are en-US therefore unobservable. This would be demonstrated, en-US and particularly problematic, in evaluations of cancers en-US en-US -en-US en-US positives, capturing as cases those individuals for whom en-US health care providers entered codes for conditions that en-US en-USMultiple Hypothesis Testingen-USSince health effects are not always known, a common en-US strategy employed in investigations is to question paen-US -en-US tients about multiple health effects. Questionnaires may en-US ask about respiratory symptoms, gastrointestinal sympen-US -en-US en-US en-US -en-US cantly high disease rate due to chance alone. Statistical en-US rules for study precision generally allow for 5% error en-US due to chance. This means that if 100 symptoms were en-US asked about, 5 of the 100 could appear to be increased en-US due to chance alone.en-US3en-USPower and Sample Sizeen-USThe power of a study is its statistical ability to detect en-US a difference between 2 groups if it truly exists (for exen-US -en-US ample, an elevated cancer rate) between the exposed and en-US the unexposed. The power of a study is intimately reen-US -en-US lated to the sample size, which is the number of people en-US in each of the 2 groups. It is also related to the prevaen-US -en-US lence of the disease of interest in the population. In oren-US -en-US en-US cancer in relatively young populations, are studied using en-US a case-control approach, or require large populations. en-US More common diseases can be studied in smaller popuen-US -en-US lations. However, to the extent that multiple causes (or en-US exposures) are involved, as they are with most chronic en-US diseases, larger populations are generally required in oren-US -en-US en-US -en-US en-US and the assessment of exposure can improve the power en-US of a study to detect an association. CONc C LUSIONS Some situations lend themselves to an epidemiologic in en-US-en-US vestigation of the strength of association. The strength en-US of an association, while not proof of causation between en-US en-US the two may be related. These situations occur when the en-US exposure is large and leads to a greatly increased risk of en-US en-USbefore the outcome, and ideally, the outcome follows en-US soon after the exposure. Ideally, current and past expoen-US -en-US en-US en-US generated. An accurate assessment of adverse health en-US effects in exposed and unexposed populations would en-US be made, and account would be taken of all potential en-US confounders. The sample size would be adequate, and en-US irrelevant hypothesis would not be included. Because en-US all studies have limitations, these conditions are never en-US achieved. However, practitioners of military preventive en-US medicine must continue to work to quickly identify poen-US -en-US tentially hazardous exposures, precisely measure the exen-US -en-US posures, and document those who were exposed and the en-US extent of their exposures to facilitate these evaluations.

en-US112 en-US, lead has been an important commodity for en-US industry, including metal alloys, cosmetics, medicinal en-US preparations, and paint pigments. Concomitantly, lead en-US poisoning has been well described since early Greek en-US history (2nd century BC), and, more recently (19th en-US en-US in workers and children.en-US1en-US By the 20th century, more in-en-US depth studies revealed the cumulative toxic effects of en-US lead exposure, especially among the vulnerable populaen-US -en-US tion of children.en-US1,2en-USen-US an estimated 4 million households with potential childen-US -en-US en-US -en-US dren (ages 1-5 years) are known to have blood lead levels en-US (BLLs) above 5 g/dL, the recommended public health en-US action level of the Centers for Disease Control and Preen-US -en-US vention (CDC).en-US3,4en-US Although BLLs have demonstrated an en-US overall dramatic decline in the past few decades, lead en-US exposures among high risk populations (low-income, en-US African American, urban, and rural mining communien-US -en-US ties or developing countries) still exist.en-US5en-USInterestingly, lead toxicity can affect nearly every body en-US system. Because subclinical presentations are common en-US among lead exposed patients, this public health risk en-US frequently goes unrecognized. Throughout the world, en-US children remain a persistent at-risk population due to en-US prevalent hand to mouth behavior, close proximity to en-US lead exposures, and physiologic higher gastrointestinal en-US absorption per unit body weight and increased respiraen-US -en-US tory rates.en-US5en-US Regardless of the route of entry, the toxic en-US effects of lead exposures remain uniform.en-US1en-USen-US lead binds to erythrocytes which can then transfer to en-US multiple organs (brain, liver, kidneys, spleen, muscles, en-US lungs, and heart), and the majority of the lead can absorb en-US onto bones and teeth after several weeks.en-US1en-US Further, exen-US -en-US posures to lead at low levels (BLL less than 10 g/dL) in en-US en-US in central nervous system functioning and cognition.en-US6,7en-US en-US Children may exhibit pica, a unique manifestation en-US of elevated BLL which involve abnormal eating habits en-US with soil or paint chips.en-US5en-USWithin a childs environment, main lead exposures en-US derive from diet, contaminated soil, paint in homes en-US built before 1978, water pumped through leaded pipes, en-US imported clay pots, certain consumer products such as en-US candies, make-up, jewelry, certain imported home remen-US-en-US edies, electronics, and toys.en-US1,3,5en-US Indirect exposures from en-US adult recreational activities such as take-home lead dust en-US en-US8,9en-US More en-US importantly, certain parental occupations (ship yards, en-US manufacturers, and handlers in lead alloys including en-US batteries and ammunition) can also pose considerable en-US risk to the child.en-US10en-US Therefore, occupational lead expoen-US -en-US sures can indirectly expose the employees families and en-US children under the age of 6 years by take-home lead dust en-US on clothes, boots, hands, and face.en-US3,11-13en-USIn 1991, the CDC responded to this growing public health en-US concern by issuing new guidelines.en-US1,3en-US This included an en-US emphasis on the childs environmental history, parent en-US education, and follow-up for children with BLLs of 10 en-US g/dL or greater.en-US1en-US More recently, the American Acaden-US -en-US emy of Pediatrics emphasized lead screening history in en-US a 2005 guidance statement, and the CDC recommended en-US initial and follow-up screening (within 1 to 3 months) of en-US pregnant and lactating women, neonates, and infants of en-US women with BLLs of 5 g/dL or greater.en-US4en-US en-US In May 2012, en-US the Advisory Committee on Childhood Lead Poisoning en-US Prevention recommended the use of a reference range en-US for an elevated BLL based on the growing body of literaen-US -en-US ture that levels less than 10 g/dL do indeed adversely en-US affect children.en-US1,3-5,11,14en-US Thus, the current value (5 g/dL) en-US en-US3,15en-USen-US -en-US ing the complex toxic effects of lead exposures among en-US children underscores the importance of primary prevenen-US-en-US tion and vigilant surveillance and screening.

en-USJanuary June 2017 en-US115 I. INTRODUCTi I ON The Canadian poet and adventurer Robert W. Service en-UScould not have imagined the emotional journey he was en-US about to embark on when he enlisted in an American en-US Ambulance Unit in 1915 in Paris. Though unenthusien-US -en-US astic about combat, he did not mind taking a chance of en-US being killed while helping others. Only a few weeks afen-US -en-US ter enlisting in the ambulance service, the middle-aged en-US en-US Flanders. Despite the explosions all around him and the en-US wounded men in the rear of his car, he remarked that the en-US en-US after his thrill seeking brought him to a station closer to en-US the front lines, his sense of adventure was extinguished en-US by the horrors of war. After noting a French soldier died en-US in the rear of his ambulance, he wrote that I prefer to en-US forget thatThose who went through the horrors of war en-US never want to talk about it.en-US1en-USDespite Services contention that he did not want to talk en-US about wars horrors, his writing became his venue for en-US exploring his emotional reactions to combat. What is en-US most striking about his autobiographical writing is the en-US fact that Service developed both adaptive and idealisen-US -en-US tic endurance strategies to survive the horrors of war. en-US On the one hand, he wrote that we became very calen-US -en-US lous, grumbling if brains or guts soiled the car. We were en-US sorry for the poor devils but saw so many they were like en-US shadows.en-US2en-US In essence, he learned to treat his wounded en-US charges as shadows in order to avoid absorbing the en-US emotional impact of carrying the dying on a daily basis. en-US Conversely, Service also found solace in his mission. In en-US en-US Balen-US-en-US lads of a Bohemian, en-US Services narrator is an ambulance en-US driver like the author. The protagonist notes that My en-US only consolation is that the war must soon be over, and en-US that I will have helped.en-US3en-USThousands of ambulance drivers developed similar suren-US -en-US vival strategies as they volunteered in a war-torn Europe. en-US Droves of Americans volunteered in varying capacities en-US in different fronts in the years preceding their countrys en-US declaration of war on Germany in 1917.

Ana Carden-Coyne, a historian of en-US the British medical services, argues that morbid wounds en-US deeply affected even the most hardened surgeons who en-US contemplated their patients grim futures Despite the en-US en-US asserts that the only way they could deal with the sufen-US -en-US fering around them was simply to get on with their jobs, en-US allowing work to subsume their feelings.en-US7en-US Despite her en-US focus on British medics, Carden-Coynes argument for en-US the persistence of British doctors and nurses easily apen-US -en-US plies to the thousands of American ambulance drivers in en-US the Allied armies. The concept of forbearance through en-US wartime trauma is evident in scores of published jouren-US -en-US nals, poems, memoirs, and even autobiographical novels en-US written by American medics both during and after the en-US en-US First World War not only faced extreme emotional trauen-US -en-US ma and physical dangers, but developed adaptive and en-US idealistic forbearance strategies to survive their ordeal. en-US Whereas ambulanciers learned to inure themselves to en-US the horrors of war, they also developed positive survival en-US strategies which centered on the critical value of their en-US work in saving the wounded and dying. II. HiI STORi I OGRAPh H Y OF WARTi I ME E ENDURANCE AND MMETh H ODOLOGY This article is inspired by two current trends in the his en-US-en-US toriography of the First World War: the study of troop en-US endurance, and the study of the cultural and emotional en-US aspects of military medicine during the Great War. A en-US recent anthology produced by World War I scholars in en-US New Zealanden-US Endurance and the First World War: en-US Experiences and Legacies in New Zealand and Ausen-US-en-US traliaen-US is a concise study on the topic of endurance en-US during the Great War.en-US8en-US In the volume, historian David en-US Monger asserts that endurances presence has occupied en-US a quiet, yet underlying and central place in the historien-US -en-US ography of the war.en-US9en-US Out of the several authors Monger en-US lists that have directly and indirectly covered enduren-US -en-US ance, Stephen Loveridgeauthor of the article Seeing en-US en-US Equipment and Endurance in New Zealands War Efen-US -en-US fort,Michael Roperauthor of en-USThe Secret Battle: en-US Emotional Survival in the Great Waren-US and Alexander en-US Watsonauthor of en-US Enduring the Great War: Combat, en-US Morale and Collapse in the German and British Armies, en-US 1914-1919en-US have all particularly inspired this current en-US study on the endurance of medics.

en-USJanuary June 2017 en-US117 en-USUSAAS.en-US16en-US Despite heavy protest from former section en-US leadersespecially from Richard Nortonthe three en-US main ambulance groups were absorbed by the USAAS. en-US One of the biggest complaints from the formerly-civilen-US -en-US ian drivers who continued on was the destruction of the en-US volunteer spirit that came with army enlistment.en-US17en-USThe experiences and trials of the men in any ambulance en-US section varied year by year, and from station to station. en-US Wherever they served, they excelled in their primary en-US task: quickly transporting the wounded to aid stations en-US and evacuation centers. One unit of Andrews Amerien-US -en-US can Field Service (formerly the American Ambulance en-US Field Service) was reported to have evacuated over en-US 56,000 wounded troops between 1915 and the wars end en-US in 1918.en-US18en-US Though experiences and procedures in hospien-US -en-US tal transport obviously varied from location to location, en-US en-US had two tasks: jitney duty and front line duty. Initially, en-US these volunteers were permitted to take part only in jiten-US -en-US ney transport, which involved the transport of en-US blesss en-US (the French term for wounded soldiers) from hospital to en-US hospital or from transport trains and ships to hospitals. en-US As the war progressed, ambulance drivers began worken-US -en-US ing the front lines. After a soldier was wounded, he en-US en-US and from there stretcher-bearers carried him to an aden-US-en-US vanced dressing clinic where doctors performed basic en-US operations. From here, ambulance drivers carried the en-US blesss en-USto triage stations and evacuation hospitals.en-US19en-USen-US the dangerous duties these drivers had on an average en-US day during the Lorraine Offensive in 1915. McConnell en-US en-US -en-US scribe it...for with us all days are so different...but the en-US action and experiences, which add the color, are never en-US en-US -en-US ning with breakfast and a discussion of German shrapen-US -en-US nel and shell that came in the night before. Then the men en-US take up their various duties. While some men are held en-US in reserve, others evacuate the wounded from various en-US posts both near and far. At the en-US poste de secours en-US(dressen-US -en-US ing station), McConnell would pick up French en-USblesss. en-US en-US damage from shrapnel and heavy casualties from shells. en-US en-US not having lost any drivers yet.en-US The last of the en-USpostes en-US en-US where drivers would have to watch out for craters in the en-US road and frequently take cover in bomb-proofs. With en-US the wounded in the car on the trip to the evacuation hosen-US -en-US pital, drivers started to take notice of shell damage, but en-US never dwelled too long on the risks they took.en-US20en-US Despite en-US en-US -en-US en-US at the front. Young ambulance drivers spent upwards en-US of 75% of their time En Repos. Activities while En en-US Repos ranged from car repair to adventuring around en-US Europe. Another favorite activity was writing letters or en-US in journals.en-US21en-US While the drivers spent most of their time en-US en-US drivers faced many of the same anxieties and emotional en-US crises as the soldiers in the trenches. V. E EMOTi I ONS AND S SOURCES In the wake of constant personal danger, the emotional en-USreactions of American ambulance drivers to their envien-US -en-US ronments varied by personal experience and location. en-US en-US in emotional studies of men during the war and of emoen-US -en-US en-US -en-US ation that must be made is that the ambulanciers grew en-US up in a society that valued stoicism and a stiff upper lip en-US when undergoing trauma. Ana Carden-Coye writes that en-US physical endurance was built into military and civilen-US -en-US ian codes of masculinitywhether located in the British en-US stiff upper-lip or new world images of American, Ausen-US -en-US tralian, and Canadian frontiersmen whose hardy bodies en-US had supposedly toiled with stoic silence. She also notes en-US that among individual British doctors, triumph over en-US adversity was the main narrative of British medical and en-US surgical innovation.en-US22en-US While Carden-Coyne focuses on en-US physical pain, the same stoicism can be applied to mens en-US emotions as well.en-US Carden-Coyne and other historians have also noted the en-US ability of soldiers to share their emotional responses to en-US horrors in various capacities. In her study on British en-US en-US argues that while British soldiers writings rarely comen-US -en-US en-US en-US themselves to be men, both physically and emotionalen-US -en-US ly.en-US23en-US While this article does not extensively examine the en-US gendered experiences of ambulanciers, it is important en-US to note how reactions to combat could play into their en-US perceptions of manhoodand ultimately their will to en-US persevere through trauma.en-US Michael Roper contends that although British soldiers en-US experienced a multitude of emotions, fear and dread en-US were constantly on the mind of most participants. Roper en-US writes that in response, these men were caught between en-US unprocessed emotions and the aforementioned rule of en-US the stiff upper lip. As we will see, the emotional reen-US -en-US sponses of medics to combat were also very complex

In terms of sources, Roper en-US warns that retrospective memoirs are generally more en-US en-US than letters or journals.en-US24en-US Some of the following acen-US -en-US counts are postwar memoirs, but the raw emotional exen-US -en-US periences recorded in the memoirs often match the more en-US contemporary accounts.en-US One problem that does arise with wartime publications en-US is the issue of subjectivity and writing for an audience. en-US en-US With the Amerien-US -en-US can Ambulance Service in Franceen-US25en-US and en-USFriends of en-US France, en-US were both recruitment books inspired by the aden-US -en-US ministration of the American Field Service.

Broaden-US -en-US ly speaking, some of the most intense emotions ambuen-US -en-US lance drivers experienced during their service included: en-US intense fear, exhaustion, and severe emotional traumaen-US en-USFearen-USFear is one of the most primal and intense emotions that en-US ambulance drivers, doctors, nurses, civilians and solen-US -en-US diers experienced together.

McDermott, fear comes en-US en-US battle is over, anxietyan internal form of feararises en-US from the memories of combat.

At six-thirty, however, Richardson en-US and I were waked up and given two sitting cases to en-US transport.en-US33en-US As one could expect, the rampant sleeplessen-US -en-US ness drivers faced led to extreme mental fatigue.

January June 2017 119 en-USExposure to the horrors of war was the primary culprit en-US behind this nerve-wracking strain. According to Mien-US -en-US chael Roper, many soldiers who were exposed to the en-US wars horrors suffered from periods of what has been en-US called battle stress, although never becoming incaen-US -en-US pacitated to the point where they were withdrawn from en-US the line.en-US35en-US More often than not, ambulance drivers also en-US suffered emotional strain without being diagnosed as a en-US en-US that hunger, homesickness, exhaustion and continual en-US danger were common amongst men in the trenches, en-US alongside a growing sense of the purposelessness of en-US en-US psychologically damaging aspect of trench warfare was en-US en-US -en-US mon for ambulance drivers.en-US36en-USA drivers most obvious exposure to the horrors of war en-US was through the transport of wounded men. In a poem en-US by driver Emery Pottle, the narrator tries to comfort a en-US wounded man in his ambulance: en-US Courage, mon braveen-US en-US Were almost there!/ God, how the fellow groans/ en-US And youd give your heart to ease the jolt/ Of the ambuen-US -en-US lance over the stones. The driver laments that only God en-US knew how he would go on, through the dreadful night, en-US en-US Towards the end of the poem, he laments: its just anen-US-en-US other en-US poilu en-US [French soldier] thats dead;/Youve hauled en-US them every day/Till your soul has ceased to wonder and en-US weep/ At wars wild, wanton play.en-US37en-US The narrators horen-US -en-US ror can be seen in his attempts to wake up the wounded en-US bless en-US en-US the carnage.en-US Perhaps one of the most well-known results of emoen-US -en-US tional trauma during the Great War was the phenomen-US-en-US enon of shell shock. The term, created in 1914 by British en-US psychologist Charles Meyers, was used to cover a wide en-US range of disturbing physical and emotional symptoms en-US after combat (i.e. vomiting and vivid nightmares). By en-US 1916, the term shell shock was dually applied to two en-US different sets of symptoms: physical effects from the en-US shell impact and hysteria caused by the horrors of en-US combat. The nature of the disease was so controversial en-US that doctors vehemently disagreed whether physical or en-US emotional trauma led to shell shock.en-US38en-US It was not until en-US the 1980s that doctors realized the permanent emotional en-US effects combat had on soldiers and formulated the idea en-US of post-traumatic stress disorder.en-US39en-USAmbulance drivers were vulnerable to shell shock as en-US well, Phillip Sidney Rice being a prime example. After en-US one particularly exhausting mission in Verdun in 1917, en-US Rices commander sent him to Paris for treatment for en-US battle fatigue.en-US40en-US In his memoir, Rice noted that he en-US was not alone. During the battle he noticed worn out en-US stretcher-bearers with their burdens and that his own en-US face seemed to pinch at the cheek bones with fatigue. en-US en-US broken down under the strain and been sent in to Paris. en-US en-US Towards the end of the battle he noticed he was playing en-US out very rapidly, was unable to relax and could not en-US sleep. After his mission, he awoke in the middle of the en-US night because of a terrible nightmare in which he en-US went through the whole experience of battle again.en-US41 VII. E ENDURANCE To survive innumerable tribulations, ambulanciers were en-USforced to develop mental endurance strategies. Despite en-US some similarities in coping techniques, soldiers and en-US ambulanciers typically developed emotional survival en-US en-US makes the case that American ambulanciers were both en-US in and out of the war. They experienced the mangled en-US en-US en-US double perspective that alleviated some of their emoen-US -en-US en-US in the worthiness of their jobs prevented them from en-US en-US asserting that drivers rarely resorted to fatalism like en-US their comrades in the trenches, and that they rarely sucen-US -en-US cumbed to self-doubt. As we have seen, drivers consisen-US -en-US tently doubted their ability to persevere through trials.en-US42 en-USen-US of strength in the perceived hardiness of their French en-US allies.en-US43en-US Conversely, drivers such as Service developed a en-US certain callousness to the wars horrors in order to suren-US -en-US vive their jobs. In the following examination, these two en-US types of endurance will be categorized as adaptive and en-US idealistic endurance. Adaptive Endurance en-USAlexander Watson notes how British and German solen-US -en-US en-US constant exposure. On the other hand, to survive, solen-US -en-US diers had to learn to judge risk without being overen-US -en-US whelmed by it and to make judgements based on their en-US chances of survival.en-US44en-US en-US Phillip Sidney Ricethe aforeen-US -en-US mentioned ambulance driver who suffered shell shocken-US certainly never learned to get used to shelling, but he en-US en-US enduring a trial as opposed to withdrawing in fear. Duren-US -en-US ing a bombardment in Verdun in September of 1917, en-US Rice reasoned with himself that if I do go on and am en-US hit, the agony will be over within a few minutes, but if I

PAGE 122

en-US120 en-US back, the agony will be with me the rest of my life. en-US So I put on my gas mask and drove on.en-US45en-US A sense of en-US shame and duty forced him to keep driving.en-US Such inurement strategies were not universally effective. en-US Norton-Harjes driver Edward R. Coyle also initially aden-US -en-US opted an adaptive approach to overcoming his fear of en-US en-US more or less matter-of-fact way when one is continually en-US forced to accept them. Life seems a matter of fate and en-US little attention is paid to bursting shells.en-US46en-US According en-US to Coyle, drivers had to passively accept the harsh realen-US -en-US ity of shelling in order to carry on with their tasks. Deen-US -en-US spite this initial adaptive approach, Coyle was ultimately en-US crippled by fear during one particularly heavy bombarden-US-en-US ment in Verdun.en-US47en-USWhile Coyle realized the futility in questioning the presen-US -en-US ence of shelling in his routine, other drivers also learned en-US to develop a thick skin to overcome their fear of aren-US -en-US tillery. During a bombardment in the summer of 1915, en-US AFS driver Leslie Buswell was requested to transport en-US en-US grin and bear it, but it is a horrid feeling to have to go en-US out into a little street where shells are falling regularly...en-US and run a few yards down the street to a poste de secen-US -en-US ours where a shell has just landed and another is due en-US any moment.en-US48en-US en-US Just as with the others, Buswell realized en-US the inevitability of German shells, and forced himself to en-US carry on out of necessity rather than desire.en-US Ambulanciers also had to harden themselves to the conen-US -en-US en-US B. Campbell wrote about his units emotional response en-US when hospital trains came in with gas victims for the en-US en-US hail of shrapnel, and tested the mens emotions severely en-US en-US en-US to suffering as to be little affected by them.en-US49en-US en-US Although en-US his company became emotional when seeing gas vicen-US -en-US tims, he did admit some level of adaptation to the horen-US -en-US Idealistic Endurance en-USDespite the prevalence of adaptive coping strategies, en-US ambulanciers did develop positive endurance strateen-US -en-US gies. New Zealand historian Stephen Loveridge writes en-US en-US -en-US ciated with some larger or redeeming purpose, however en-US en-US reframe and control apparently impossible situations.en-US50en-US en-US On the other hand, Arlen J. Hansen notes that despite the en-US en-US adventure and education in their work.en-US51en-US Drivers interen-US -en-US nalized their mission to help the wounded, and even used en-US their belief in their jobs to help alleviate personal horrors. en-US Of course, self-effacing service was not always healthy en-US for individual drivers. Driver Leslie Buswell wrote that en-US en-US en-US -en-US sonal equation practically doesnt exist here.en-US52en-USDespite having to neglect personal needs, the ambuen-US -en-US lance service did provide a form of escapism for the en-US en-US of pre-mission anxiety, Phillip Sidney Rice described en-US seeing the horrors that the German Army wrought upon en-US en-US loving France.en-US53en-US While one could dismiss this essay as en-US mere propaganda, it is worth noting that Rice penned en-US this patriotic essay while having premonitions of his en-US own demise. Even in his fear, he was able to focus on en-US the larger mission at hand.en-US Even after the United States entry into the war, Amerien-US -en-US can drivers continued to adopt idealistic endurance en-US strategies. In June of 1918, Guy Emerson Bowerman, en-US en-US en-US a terrible thing it still has its compensations for those en-US en-US -en-US en-US en-US business is unromantic, but appreciated that there were en-US en-US en-US en-US54en-US In essence, despite en-US the horrors of war, Bowerman found purpose in his en-US work and comradery with other drivers.en-US en-US ones larger mission comes from a letter Leslie Buswell en-US en-US the whole war is growing on me day by day, and someen-US -en-US times when I have got into my bed or am trying to get en-US a few hours sleep on a stretcher...the horrors of blood...en-US haunt me, and I feel I can hardly go through another day en-US en-US that is soon forgotten when a call comes, and you see en-US those bandaged soldiers waiting to be taken to a hospien-US -en-US tal. I almost love my old car...en-US55en-US In essence, the call to en-US duty distracted Buswell from even the most traumatic en-US memories. VIII. CONc C LUSi I ON In conclusion, American medical personnel in World en-USWar I experienced varying emotional responses to the en-US ENDURING FOR THE PATIENTS SAKE: THE EMOTIONAL EXPERIENCES AND ENDURANCEen-US en-US OF AMERICAN AMBULANCE DRIVERS IN WORLD WAR I

Some might contend that acen-US -en-US counts published during the war were mere propaganda, en-US or that postwar accounts were too far removed from the en-US en-US reasonable, they cannot negate the existence of sundry en-US emotional accounts and survival strategies found within en-US these medics journals, letters, and memoirs.en-US Unfortunately, the emotional experiences of American en-US ambulance drivers and physicians have been neglected en-US by historians for too long. As the centennial of the conen-US-en-US en-US has passed away, it falls upon current social and medical en-US historians to not only expand the scholarship on World en-US War I endurance, but to reexamine the emotional and en-US social experiences of the American medics who volunen-US -en-US teered in foreign armies and the United States military en-US during the Great War.
