Medical fitness for military submariners

Military submarines are a unique working environment. When deployed, they face many of the same engineering challenges of a space station – a fully-enclosed, artificial environment. However, one important difference is that the medical staff cannot ask for help. To limit the impact of medical problems on the operations of the submarine, medical standards have been derived.

Surgeon Commanders Mike Lindsay and Martin Scutt will discuss the medical problems encountered on patrol, the operational limitations placed on the medical staff, and the factors influencing the medical standards.
