In the modern system of medical and evacuation measures, the timeliness of medical care, the continuity and sequence of medical measures, that is, compliance with uniform treatment methods for the wounded and sick and the consistent increase in therapeutic measures at the stages of medical evacuation, are of particular importance. a common understanding of the pathological processes occurring in the ENT organs with lesions and diseases, common methods of their prevention and treatment. A prerequisite for continuity is a clear record of medical records.

In the process of conducting medical and evacuation measures, the troops provide for the following types of medical care: first aid, first aid (feldsher) aid, first aid, qualified and specialized medical care.

Under the guise of medical care, they mean a certain list (complex) of medical and preventive measures carried out in case of defeats and diseases by troops (self-help and mutual assistance) and medical service on the battlefield, in the centers of mass sanitary losses and at the stages of medical evacuation. The type of medical care is determined by the place of provision, the training of the people who provide it, and the availability of appropriate equipment. The volume of medical care is the totality of medical and preventive measures within the boundaries of a specific type of medical care performed at the stages of medical evacuation in relation to certain categories of wounded and sick for medical reasons and in accordance with the combat medical situation.

It is generally accepted to subdivide lesions requiring predominantly surgical treatment (wounds and bruises) into injuries with bone damage and without bone damage. However, in most published classifications of combat injuries of ENT organs, this symptom fades into the background. At the same time, studies conducted at the ENT department of the VMeda Medical University named after S.M. Kirov confirm that this criterion is leading for ENT injuries.

With gunshot injuries, isolated injuries of ENT organs were rare. In most cases, they were combined with injuries in other areas of the head and body. A similar pattern is observed with ENT injuries in both wartime and peacetime. This feature determines the need for close interaction between specialists of various fields (neurosurgeons, ophthalmologists, maxillofacial surgeons, otolaryngologists, general surgeons) in providing assistance to victims with head injuries. Obviously, determining the number of concomitant ENT injuries, along with identifying the frequency of such leading combat injuries, is essential, as it roughly reflects the amount of advisory work of otolaryngologist specialists.

Based on the most representative materials, according to the experience of the Great Patriotic War, the following was established: injuries of ENT organs and neck (as leading ones) occurred in 1.6% of all wounded, including 0.8% were isolated and 0.8% were wounds ENT organs in combination with injuries of other areas of the body. In addition, 1.7% of wounded with other locations of leading gunshot injuries had concomitant ENT injuries.

Thus, during the Second World War, 3.3% of all wounded with firearms needed otorhinolaryngology. By the type of hulling projectile: bullet - 32.2%, fragmentation - 66.1%, others - 1.7%. In tab. 6.6.1 presents data on the distribution of wounds of ENT organs by localization.

Table 6.6.1

Distribution of gunshot wounds of ENT organs and neck

There is reason to believe that only some worsening of ENT wounds can take place.

In tab. 6.6.2 presents a classification of combat injuries of ENT organs by severity and nature.

Table 6.6.2

Classification of mechanical damage to ENT organs by severity, nature and localization

As you know, from the action of conventional weapons, not only injuries of the ENT organs are observed, but also other types of combat mechanical injury - air blast damage (shell shock and closed injury - bruises). It has been established that with the development of military equipment there is a clear tendency to increase the proportion of shell-shock and bruises in the general structure of sanitary losses. This type of combat defeat is of particular importance in the case of the use of nuclear munitions. Therefore, defeats by the action of the shock wave deserve the most careful study.

At present, contusion is understood as the general trauma of an organism that has arisen as a result of instant mechanical action on the entire surface of the body or a large part of it.
Such general damage is most likely due to the effects of the environment, i.e., air, sometimes water, less often the action of large masses of loose bodies (earth, sand, grain, etc.). Under combat conditions, shell shock is usually associated with the defeat of an air blast wave.

Hearing and speech disorders are almost as frequent companions of commutation-concussion syndrome as loss of consciousness. In some cases, signs of damage to the nervous system prevail throughout the course of the disease, and signs of damage to the ENT organs are fading into the background, in others, the general symptoms are expressed only in the early period, and auditory-speech disorders prevail in the whole picture. This circumstance should explain the fact that it is much more expedient to treat this contingent of affected people in one medical institution (NPPG, HSNG), where there are departments for those affected with a closed brain injury and for ENT shocked.

The composition of the medical forces and means for the specialized care of ENTs affected.

The majority of patients with lesions of ENT organs (as well as those affected by other profiles) are received for treatment in hospitals, where they are provided with specialized care and treatment in full.

GB has one unit of specialized medical care (OSMP). Each OSMP includes, along with other medical groups, a neurosurgical group consisting of: the head of the group - a neurosurgeon, senior specialists - an otolaryngologist, ophthalmologist, maxillofacial surgeon, neurologist; two senior operating nurses, three surgical nurses, one orderly and one dental technician. If necessary (for example, with a mass flow of the wounded), a neurosurgical group is attached for reinforcement in HSNH and works in it as necessary.

The military medical service has full-time hospitals with the presence of ENT departments (VPNhG). There are hospitals in the staff of which ENT specialists are provided (VPMG, VPNG, VPOZHG, VPGLR) for the provision of specialized care (Table 6.6.3).

The required time-sensitive medical equipment intended to provide specialized ENT care in various medical institutions is presented in Table. 6.6.4.

From the above in table. 6.6.4 of the property of greatest importance is the set of UL (otorhinolaryngological). This kit is intended for equipping specialists of otolaryngologists of the neurosurgical group OSMP, VPOzhG and ENT department of the VPNhG department. The kit is packaged in two wooden crates with a total weight of 94 kg. The set includes 191 items of 101 items.

The UL kit provides specialized ENT care, including: diagnosis of injuries and diseases of ENT organs; the implementation of surgical aids on ENT organs in full; treatment and care of otolaryngological patients; conducting medical examination.

The UL kit contains: surgical instruments, medical devices and devices, including a BEF-1 bronchoscope, a laryngoscope, an electric headlight lamp, a gauge membrane and stethophonendoscopes, a frontal reflector, pocket inhalers, tuning forks, conchotomes and laryngeal bites, hollow probes and washing of the frontal sinuses, tracheotomy tubes of all numbers, a set for microoperations on the ear, ear instruments and other items.

The kit includes suture materials, medicines and other consumables - silk and catgut, dicain for anesthesia, surgical and sewing injection needles, eye pipettes, urethral catheters, drainage tubes, etc.

Thus, the UL kit allows the specialist to perform both an ENT examination and complete surgical treatment for ENT injuries and diseases.

Of course, in addition to having a specialist trained and equipped with the necessary equipment, an ENT specialist needs the correct organization of the work of the ENT department.

  1. Psychological features of military operations in various types of combat and in the conditions of the use of WMD
    The preparation of servicemen for a modern war can be built only on the basis of a deep knowledge of the laws governing the functioning of their psyche and behavior in a specific combat situation, that is, taking into account the specifics of goals, objectives, means and methods of activity in various types of combat. Domestic military science distinguishes two types of combat: offensive and defense. Taking into account the psychological characteristics of species
  2. Psychological characteristics of military operations of troops in the conditions of the use of weapons of mass destruction and precision weapons
    Among the most powerful military equipment is rightfully nuclear weapons. It is impossible to speak about the nature of its influence on the psyche and combat activity of warriors with sufficient scientific accuracy, since such studies are not conventional weapons. They include all fire and strike weapons using artillery, anti-aircraft, aviation, rifle, engineering ammunition, and conventional rockets.
    Let us consider the organization of specialized ENT care by the example of the ENT department of SVPNhG. As mentioned above, VPN / hG has an independent otolaryngological department, which can be strengthened (with a mass flow of wounded on the basis of VPHG by reinforcing it with a neurosurgical group from OSMP. The ENT department of SVPHG is deployed on the basis of one of the medical departments of VPHG using
  4. Psychological features of defensive combat
    Defensive hostilities, as you know, are aimed at repelling the advance of the superior enemy forces, inflicting maximum losses on him, keeping important areas (objects) of the area, and thereby creating favorable conditions for the transition to the offensive. Domestic military science determines that defense in a modern war can be positional and maneuverable, carried out
  5. Psychological characteristics of offensive military operations
    The psychological characteristics of offensive military operations are determined by the specifics of their goals, the applied methods and means of armed struggle. The offensive is aimed at defeating (destroying) the enemy and capturing important areas (lines, objects) of the terrain. It consists in defeating the enemy with all available means, a decisive attack, the rapid advance of troops into its depths
  6. Diagnostics of the consequences of participation in hostilities
    Psychodiagnostics of combat mental disorders is a set of interrelated procedures for identifying the facts of the existence of psychological injuries, their identification and assessment, decision making in terms of volume, time, means, methods of psychocorrectional impact on military personnel in order to quickly return to duty or in peaceful living conditions. \ The purpose of psychodiagnostics
  7. Psychological analysis of the period of hostilities
    The main feature of this period is the need to strengthen the enemy’s fire strike, to seize his initiative, because units that are on alert at their core are units of “response” (motive). Thus, a serviceman, a combat crew, a change, must change, transform a combat situation, their benefit, impose their will
  8. Purpose, tasks, principles of psychological support of military operations of troops
    I The psychological support of military operations can be defined as a technological system aimed at creating, updating, preserving and restoring the whole psychological resource I needed to solve combat tasks of a certain type I (class). Its purpose is to maximize the psychological capabilities of military personnel to effectively combat
  9. The specifics of psychological operations during hostilities
    The psychological operations during the fighting pursue the following main objectives: • undermining the moral and psychological state of the personnel of the armed forces of the enemy; • weakening offensive impulse; • weakening of their ability to stubborn defense; • demoralization of the retreating units of the enemy, inducement of personnel of the surrounded (cut off) units to surrender.
  10. Socio-psychological readaptation of combatants
    The participation of people in activities taking place in dangerous, extreme conditions can significantly change their internal picture of the world, their life meanings, transform the previously established system of values, and actualize the complex of specific needs. There is an acute need to be heard, understood, evaluated, psychologically protected, etc. The psyche of combat participants
  11. Object and subject of psychological support for combat operations of a unit
    The subject of research, in most cases, is the individual psychological capabilities of a warrior, primarily his psychological readiness for battle and psychological stability. Meanwhile, it is obvious that the measured level of individual psychological readiness changes significantly when a soldier is included in different military teams, when performing combat
  12. Psychological training of military operations and the formation of strong-willed qualities in military personnel1
    In accordance with a systematic understanding of the object of psychological support (“a serviceman in activities in a specific environment”), in our opinion, it is necessary to speak not about the psychological training of military personnel, but about the psychological preparation of military operations. The psychological preparation of hostilities is a system of interrelated activities aimed at the formation of
  13. Psychological features of the participation of women soldiers in hostilities
    Experts note that among the obvious parameters that distinguish one person from another, there are two of the most significant, "which are most important for the self-end and social relationships - this is race and, in particular, gender" [126, p. 228]. Social psychologists have found that there are significant differences in the behavior of men and women. A number of studies have shown that
  14. The specifics of the life prospects of combatants
    To analyze the characteristics of the emotional component of the life prospects of the participants in local conflicts, we turn to the results obtained using the modified method “Time Metaphors”. So, the warring men regard their future, first of all, as interesting (97.63 + 0.35), fast-moving (91.23 + 0.46), bad (80.20 + 0.28), monotonous (77 , 48 + 0.49), severe
    The modern war, if it is unleashed by the imperialists, will pursue extreme political goals and be distinguished by an unprecedented severity of conflict. The modern means of destruction that our Navy possesses make it possible to deliver powerful nuclear missile strikes and solve well only operational-tactical, but also strategic tasks. The enemy’s use of weapons, and especially weapons of mass
  17. Psychological training of military personnel to conduct active hostilities
    Summary The concept of psychological preparation. The definitions of psychological preparation, its essential content, the novelty factor and its role in the formation and manifestation of psychological qualities, the psychological mechanism, the organization and conduct of psychological training during education, upbringing and psychological preparation itself.

  18. Features of moral and psychological support in various types of military operations
    The main features of modern combat along with maneuverability, tension and dynamism are quick and dramatic changes in the situation, widespread use of various weapons of warfare, including nuclear missile weapons, uneven development of military operations along the front and in depth, a variety of methods of warfare, and increased moral psychological and physical stress of personal
  19. Psychological features of warfare at night
    Even Herodotus described the fact of the desire to use night actions in order to expand the psychological capabilities of warriors. The Macedonian warriors, perfectly trained in combat, were afraid of the outwardly terrible (large, shaggy, bearded, exoticly dressed) Tajik warriors. In an effort to eliminate the fear factor in battle, many military leaders proposed to Alexander the Great
