Management of post traumatic stress disorder using combat stress treatment principles--a case report.

Author information

  • Adam Road Hospital, Singapore.

Abstract

Combat stress casualties are only generated by war. However, military psychiatrists need to acquire the experience and skills that they would need before they are ever faced with their first combat stress casualty. Non-combat post traumatic stress disorder patients present the best approximation to combat stress casualties. This case study demonstrates how combat stress treatment principles can be successfully applied to a case of non-combat post traumatic stress disorder patient. It is not the intention of this paper to demonstrate whether the combat stress management protocol is superior to other methods or protocols. Recommendations are made on methods to identify post traumatic stress disorder patients and how to seize every available opportunity to practise combat stress treatment principles.
