This guide shows how the military preventive medicine staff in a theater of operations handles preventive care.  It includes how to do health screenings, health education, facts, assumptions and analysis.


It details how to set up theater medical command and a combat support hospital in the field.  Setting up and using medical equipment in wartime situations can be challenging for multiple reasons from sanitation, to acquiring supplies, to keeping existing supplies in a ready state.
