MSMR 2 April, 1995 The Medical Surveillance Monthly Report (MSMR): A Mirror on the Health, Fitness, and Medical Readiness of AmericaÂ’s Army The MSMR will be a principal vehicle for disseminating medical surveillance information of broad interest. It will routinely publish summaries of notifiable diseases, trends of illnesses of special surveillance interest, and field reports describing outbreaks and case occurrences with significance beyond the setting in which they occurred. Initially, we anticipate that the MSMR will appeal primarily to medical audiences. As time passes, we hope it will gain interest among troop leaders who have ultimate responsibility for the health, fitness, and readiness of their commands. The ultimate goal in summarizing surveillance data is to provide readily available information necessary to inform, motivate, and empower commanders, their surgeons, and medical staffs to design, implement, and resource programs that enhance health, fitness, and readiness. Readers will notice that much information in the current MSMR is incomplete. Obviously, the information in the MSMR will always reflect the completeness and accuracy of underlying data sources. If the MSMR acts as a mirror on the health and disease experience of the Army, the clarity of the mirrorÂ’s reflection depends, to a great extent, on the effort of the viewers to focus and refine the image. We hope the MSMR will encourage and justify more complete and reliable reporting to medical data systems. If the MSMR is not useful to its readers, it will have no value. In this light, the MSMRÂ’s success or failure can be judged only by its readers. We solicit suggestions, comments, and criticisms. We also solicit positive comments so we will not be tempted to fix something that works well. Finally, we gratefully acknowledge the enormous, largely unheralded contributions of individuals and organizations that collect, store, and share the data that are the basis of MSMR summaries. If the MSMR has value, it derives from their efforts. John Brundage, MD General Sullivan, chief of staff of the Army, has stated, "Information is power." This clear and simple statement has provided challenges and abundant opportunities to the Army Medical Department. In part, the AMEDD has responded by establishing the Army Medical Surveillance Activity in the US Army Center for Health Promotion and Preventive Medicine (USACHPPM). The Medical Surveillance Monthly Report (MSMR) is one of the first widely visible products of the new Medical Surveillance Activity. Executive Editor John F.

MSMR Vol. 01 / No. 01 3 Information regarding CS gas was obtained from the Industrial Hygiene Division, Center for Health Promotion and Preventive Medicine Europe Health effects, and treatment for CS ExposureCS gas is a chemical agent used primarily for riot control. There are a number of manufacturers and a variety of combinations of ingredients. In this incident, the canister containing the CS powder was unmarked so the exact components could not be determined. However, the brand thought to be most commonly used in this area contains 2-chloroacetophenone as the principal ingredient. The Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) characterizes the compound as a mucous membrane irritant with routes of entry being inhalation (primary), skin and ingestion. Overexposure may cause cough, pulmonary edema and coma. There is no carcinogenic risk. Emergency first aid consists of removal from the environment, ventilation, flushing of eyes with water (for eye contact), removal of clothing and soap and water cleansing (for skin contact). In cases of ingestion it is recommended that subjects be given water and induced to vomit, if conscious. When handling material above the Permissible Exposure Limit set by OSHA (0.05 ppm) it is recommended that workers wear respiratory protection, chemical safety goggles and chemical gloves and that an eye wash station be readily available. On the morning of 2 February 1995 soldiers of the 29th Medical Detachment in Baumholder, Germany, were conducting NBC training when they came upon an unmarked can. A soldier opened the can and soon realized the can contained CS powder. CS powder is a mucous membrane irritant commonly used in conjunction with M-17 Mask training (see below). In the course of events some of the powder became airborne. The soldier exited the area and began opening windows to enhance ventilation of the area. Unfortunately, this led to drafting of a small amount of the powder into the adjacent clinic. The clinic was ventilated, but a total of 27 persons (9 active duty Army, 10 Army family members, and 8 DA civilians) were potentially exposed to the CS powder. The exposure was characterized as minor, with most patients displaying no symptoms whatsoever. All patients were evaluated in the acute care clinic and released. No patients were hospitalized. The EUR-HSSA Environmental Science Officer (ESO) was notified and traveled to the clinic the same day. He evaluated the incident and recommended the following:Submitted by James E.

The ARD rate for all basic trainees during the week was 1.9%. Two battalions, 1/38 Infantry Regiment and 2/54 Infantry Regiment had the highest rates, 1.8% and 4.8% respectively. One company, A Company, 2/54 Infantry Regiment had an ARD rate of 14.7%, which was greater than any other company. The epidemic curve for cases in the outbreak is depicted in Figure 1. The clinical presentation for all soldiers began with abrupt onset of fever as high as 103.20F. Other symptoms beginning with the most frequent were dry cough, headache, myalgias, nausea, dizziness and pharyngitis. Two soldiers had chest x-rays consistent with viral pneumonia. None of the 48 strep cultures obtained during the outbreak period were positive. Viral cultures were obtained for 33 of the 63 affected soldiers. Two cultures were positive for influenza, type A. No culture was positive for adenovirus. Later in the outbreak it was determined that none of the soldiers in 1/38 Infantry Regiment or 2/ 54 Infantry Regiment had received annual influenza immunizations. Based on similar case presentations and two positive cultures, we believe that influenza A was the most likely cause of this outbreak. Two other outbreaks of influenza A have been reported in the state of Georgia during the 1994-1995 influenza season. The low yield on cultures for influenza A may have been due to a delay in receiving viral culture media. The optimal time for collecting influenza cultures is during the acute febrile period, and some soldiers were beyond this period when the cultures were obtained.

Before the vaccine was available, 600-800 adenovirus admissions per week (1) were not unusual at some basic training installations during the winter. In some cases tents had to be set up outside the hospital to accommodate the overflowing ARD wards. The impact of these outbreaks was tremendous. The initiation of adenovirus vaccination, along with meningococcal vaccination and Acute Respiratory Disease (ARD) surveillance (permitting early outbreak intervention), are thought to be responsible for a notable decrease in ARD rates among basic trainees over the years. Although still a cause of significant morbidity, wintertime ARD rates have dropped from 5 to 8% of trainees per week in the 1960Â’s (2) to 0.35% per week in the 1990Â’s (3). This decrease represents a Preventive Medicine victory, but not a reason for complacency. In December the CHPPM became aware of a shortage of adenovirus vaccine at basic training posts that began as early as May 1994. There was great concern about entering the winter without protection from this historically severe threat to trainee health and mission accomplishment. With input from the CHPPMÂ’s Directorates of Clinical Preventive Medicine (DCPM) and Epidemiology and Disease Surveillance (DEDS), the MEDCOM issued a policy on adenovirus surveillance and outbreak response for the six basic training posts (4). The ARD surveillance guidelines were modified to increase vigilance for upward trends in overall ARD rates, and decrease the threshold used to detect epidemics (from 1.5% of trainees per week for two weeks to 1.5% per week for one week). When the rates exceeded this threshold, specific laboratory and inpatient surveillance measures were to be instituted. Epidemic Consultation (EPICON) assistance was offered for outbreaks that might exceed the capabilities of local and regional preventive medicine assets. This winter there has been only one ARD epidemic. It was short (no more than two weeks)(Continued on next page) T op 10 Corner


MSMR Vol. 01 / No. 01 9 Notice to ReadersThe following tables and supplements are additions to the current volume. Hospitalization Summary: IPDS data for Army active duty soldiers will be summarized quarterly with an annual summary appearing in the April issue. Reportable Disease Summary: Case reports submitted from MTFs through Preventive Medicine Services on reportable diseases/conditions will be summarized annually in the April issue. Force Strength: Based on data from the Defense Manpower Data Center (DMDC) this table will be produced quarterly. ARD update continued and apparently not due to adenovirus (see report from the field). The high risk season, however, is not over, and large spring and summer adenovirus outbreaks have been documented. A one year’s supply of the vaccines is now in stock.References (1) Top, FH Jr. Control of adenovirus acute respiratory disease in US Army trainees. Yale J Biol Med, 1975;48:185-95.
