Re: Plasma Boxes

Jim,
This site has a great article on plasma with excellent pictures of the boxes. Under "Articles" go to "Medical kits", then "10. Misc. items" and then "2. Blood plasma"

Re: Plasma Boxes

Jim The plasma boxes were simply top and bottom sections fitted together. The seam between the two sections was sealed with a tape. There was no other wrapping, at least in the examples I have examined. Also, you are correct regarding the cardboard divider between the two cans. Hope this helps Dirk

Re: stainless steel or nickel

In my experience, not all were marked. Also in regards to stainless, when looking for replacements for missing instruments, be aware that while the patterns of many instruments may not have changed, small style details may have. In other words, a Mayo pattern scissors from 1941 looks different than ...

Re: stainless steel or nickel

Both are correct. During the early 1940s stainless steel was becoming the surgical instrument material of choice. New instruments acquired by the US military during the war years were mostly stainless. However thousands of nickle instruments were in the inventory and were used throughout the war and...

Re: medical exam ??

Belchi,
I see no one has replied to your message, likely because your translation didn't work out well. You should re-word your request and try again. I am sure someone will have answers for you.

Music

Does anyone have the sheet music for the march Song of the Medical Corps, written by Lt. Leeon Aller in 1943? Or a link to a midi file of this piece?
Thanks

Re: Shelbyville 1943

Welcome to the forum.
I dont live in Shelbyville, but I do know that the famous Pope's cafe opened in 1946. Kept going until 2007 when it closed but I hear that it is open again. Don't know about hardware stores however.

Re: Help with transcribing a medical journal

Certainly interesting questions. A couple of thoughts: 1. No, not Silvadine (silver sulfadiazine) which was not developed until about 1972. I participated in the clinical trials for this drug in 1971. Also it is a 1% cream, but not an 5% ointment. 2. Sulfathiazole was made up as an ointment, which w...

Naval Beach Battalions

Maybe a little off topic, but I am trying to determine exactly what uniforms the US Navy Corpsmen and MOs attached to the Naval Beach Battalions wore during D-Day on Ohama and Utah Beaches. USMC uniforms or did they adopt Army uniforms?
Thanks,
Dirk

Are you looking for a lid to the round Mermite can itself, or for a lid to the food container that goes inside?

Re: tomac gastro évacuator

Belchi, This is a great find. It is a device to remove fluids from the stomach, through a nasogastric tube placed through the nose down into the stomach. The suction only removes excess fluids. It is not for injecting fluids. In this case it does so without the need for an electric motor driven pump...

Re: Tent Poles

Eric Thanks for the information. That was just what I needed to know. Actually I don't need the cross section of the upright now that I know they are the same, as I have a pyrimidal pole for reference. Maybe someone else out there knows the ridge pole cross section dimensions. Thanks again, Dirk

If they are not the same what are the cross section dimensions of the poles for the Tent, Wall, Large ? 2. What are the cross section dimensions of the...
