    Although the threat of global nuclear war diminished with the end of the Cold War, the U.S. military still must protect its troops from radiation. Now, however, military planners are preparing for more-limited exposure that could occur during either hostile or peacekeeping operations. In response to a request from the U.S. Army surgeon general, a committee of the Institute of Medicine has examined a 1996 directive that the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) issued at the time troops went to Bosnia.

    To help prevent and reduce the number of illnesses in future military deployments, the Department of Defense (DoD) asked the AffiliateMarketIngtools of Sciences (NAS) to advise it on a long-term strategy for protecting the health of the nation’s military personnel when deployed to unfamiliar environments. In response to this request, a collaborative effort was established between the Institute of Medicine (IOM) and the National Research Council (NRC) and four tasks were identified as key to addressing DoD’s request.

    The committee was asked to review the government's means of collecting and maintaining information for assessing the health consequences of military service and to recommend improvements and epidemiological studies if warranted.

    Mortality experience was evaluated for the approximately 40,000 U.S. Navy personnel who participated in Operation CROSSROADS, a 1946 atmospheric nuclear test series that took place in the Bikini Atoll in the Marshall Islands. To judge whether that mortality experience was influenced by CROSSROADS participation, those personnel were compared to a control group assembled to be similar to the participants in all ways (age, pay grade, military experience, time of service, location of service) possible except for the Operation CROSSROADS participation.

    This mandated an IOM study to evaluate the feasibility of a study to determine the relationship between the exposure of veterans to ionizing radiation and the occurrence of genetic defects in their children; adverse reproductive outcomes experiences by their wives; and periparturient diseases of the mother that are the direct result of such adverse reproductive outcomes.
  • Released: January 01, 1995
    This initial volume in an ongoing study of the potential health consequences of service during the Persian Gulf War responds to a request from Congress to determine whether actions taken to evaluate health effects have been appropriate.
  • Released: January 01, 1992
    The Institute of Medicine conducted a medical examination survey of former prisoners of war (POWs) of World War II (WWII) and the Korean conflict. This survey, which is part of a longitudinal follow-up study begun shortly after WWII, was the first to be based on medical examinations as well as on questionnaires and records for POWs and controls.
