Three Soldiers from 3rd Medical Command (Deployment Support), based in Atlanta, Ga., conducted military medical exchanges with approximately 25 soldiers of the Mauritanian Medical Services in Nouakchott, Mauritania, Jan. 10-20.
Two weeklong sessions focused on medical evacuation techniques, and field sanitation and preventive medicine, said Lt. Col. Tim Doherty. The Mauritanian participants included physicians, nurses, planners and medics, he said.
Doherty and Master Sgt. Sheri Murphy began the exchange with a comprehensive overview of casualty evacuation, examining scenarios from a hypothetical point of injury to ferrying the injured to an established field facility. Both the Mauritanian and American teams presented their overview of operations for discussion, he said.
“I was really impressed by the representatives from Mauritania,” said Doherty. “They were engaged, and they retained and sought to apply the information from day to day, incorporating discussion points from previous lectures.”
The Mauritanians engaged their American guests in an open discussion of lessons learned from recent contingency operations, said Doherty. The 3rd MDSC Soldiers provided the Mauritanians with resource materials in both English and Arabic. Class sessions were facilitated by translators, he said.
Maj. Michael Fuller joined Doherty for presentations on field sanitation and preventative medicine. Fuller and Doherty conducted a series of open forum discussions and slide presentations to familiarize their Mauritanian peers with an oversight of the U.S. military approach to preventive medicine and field sanitation risk reduction strategies.
The bottom line of both endeavors is to ensure that soldiers remain as healthy as possible in a field environment, said Doherty. Again, the U.S. team was able to provide study materials in both English and Arabic for their hosts to use as a reference resource for further education and training.
Maj. Lee Clark of the U.S. Army Africa Command Surgeon’s Office also participated in discussions with representatives of the Mauritanian Military’s Medical Department to assess possibilities for future engagement opportunities.
“The Mauritanian physicians are eager to engage with the U.S. military. They have a unique medical system, in which the hospitals are military-run, but are open to the civilian population. They are eager to participate in our ophthalmology medical readiness training exercise program, since cataracts and eye pathology pose a major concern,” Kelly said.
This was the first medical engagement of its sort conducted by the U.S. Army Africa Command Surgeon’s Office, he said.
“They are also interested in a trauma-surgery traveling contact team visit focused toward their providers,” he said.
