Brazilian Armed Forces Create Medical Center of Excellence

first_imgBy Taciana Moury/Diálogo August 30, 2018 Through the creation of the Brazilian Armed Forces’ Joint Operational Medical Center (C Cj Med Op FA, in Portuguese), the Brazilian Ministry of Defense (MD, in Portuguese) seeks to provide a center of excellence in the field of operational medicine to train military and civilian health professionals. The new structure, scheduled to open by the end of 2021, will be located at the Mocanguê Naval Complex by the Brazilian Navy Fleet Command (MB, in Portuguese), in Niterói, Rio de Janeiro. The project, coordinated by MD’s Interoperability in Subsistence and Operational Medicine Department, focuses on the use of modern technologies for medical simulation to develop doctrine and train in operational medicine. The new structure will be available to service members and auxiliary and civil defense forces. Medical training The center, said MB Commander Hemerson dos Santos Luz, MD Operational Medicine coordinator, will train service members and civilians to assist in emergency, trauma, medical intelligence, and health planning for joint and peacekeeping operations. “The goal is to apply modern knowledge to the care of those wounded in combat, in medical response during crisis and disaster situations, among others,” he said. According to Cmdr. Hemerson, the need for an operational medical joint center has been raised since 2012. “Some events contributed to the development of the project, such as the 2013 doctrinal meeting on Medical Support in Joint and Peace Operations, with the participation of the Armed Forces, and the 2014 Joint and Peace Operations Medical Support Seminar. In 2015, MD considered the project strategic,” the officer said. The center will facilitate integration between the armed forces and civil defense agencies in scenarios that may require complex medical intervention in critical and restricted environments, and humanitarian operations. “Service members in the medical field will be able to speak the same language and use standard equipment,” Cmdr. Hemerson said. Future installations In June 2018, an MD committee visited the Mocanguê Naval Complex to assess the future site of the joint center and attend a coordination meeting with project leaders. Brazilian Army (EB, in Portuguese) service members and officers assigned to the project attended the meeting. Rear Admiral Humberto Giovanni Canfora Mies, director of the Brazilian Navy’s Operational Medical Center (CMOpM, in Portuguese), was among the participants. In addition to identifying the site where the center will be erected, the officer said the meeting established a dialogue with representatives of the forces tasked to identify the main needs of the center. Currently, MB has CMOpM; EB has the Operational Health Course at the Logistics Sergeant School; and the Air Force has the Airspace Medical Institute. “The Armed Forces have their own characteristics due to unique operational aspects. Each force’s operational medical centers will preserve their capacities to meet specific demands,” said Rear Adm. Canfora. “In the Navy, for instance, there is a focus on Surface Warfare Medicine—as healthcare on warships is known—on Submarine Medicine, and on Glacial Medicine, the latter derived from Antarctic operations.” Better trained service members For Rear Adm. Canfora, the creation of a joint center will result in better trained and better equipped service members in the health field. The center will also prepare them to work efficiently in the various scenarios Brazilian troops face. “Institutions that aim for better knowledge of operational medicine, organizing and incorporating it into the Armed Forces, all while taking a responsible, consistent, and clear approach, are essential,” he said. The experience and knowledge of the military’s operational medical centers can greatly contribute to the development of C Cj Med Op FA, the officer said. “For example, since 2009, the Navy Operational Center develops operational medical doctrine ranging from the activation and operation of a hospital ship to the preparation of pre-hospital medical response for a radiological or nuclear accident at a naval base,” he said. Military medicine is relevant not only in hypothetical scenarios, such as war, explained Rear Adm. Canfora. “It’s also important during operations to guarantee law and order, United Nations peacekeeping operations, and humanitarian operations, which bring numerous benefits to society and the Brazilian government,” he concluded.last_img read more

Jadeja proves his worth despite India’s exit

first_imgBy Amlan ChakrabortyMANCHESTER, England (Reuters) – Ravindra Jadeja’s all-round brilliance could not fire India to the final of the Cricket World Cup but the 30-year-old at least showed what he can still offer the team in the first semi-final against New Zealand yesterday.Playing only his second match of the tournament, Jadeja returned figures of 1-34 in his tidy 10 overs and produced two moments of fielding excellence at Old Trafford.He first dismissed Ross Taylor, New Zealand’s top scorer, with a pinpoint direct throw from midwicket and, in the next ball, took a tricky catch to send back Tom Latham. The all-rounder then returned to top-score with a belligerent 77, celebrating his fifty with a characteristic sword dance before raising his arms in an animated gesture toward the commentary box.Jadeja has had a Twitter spat with former India player-turned-commentator Sanjay Manjrekar who had described the all-rounder as a “bits and pieces” player. India captain Virat Kohli said the Saurashtra player did not need any extra motivation from the management team.“I don’t think any of us had to say anything to Jadeja after what happened over the last one week,” Kohli said after the loss at Old Trafford. “He was quite ready to just get onto the path to be honest and you saw the passion with which he played.”Jadeja could not force a victory but Kohli felt this was the left-hander’s best innings he could remember.“In my watching the data for 10 years, me playing with him as well, this is probably his best knock because the kind of pressure, the stage we were at, almost out of the game, and then he produces that,” said Kohli. With Jadeja in the middle, the team had been optimistic of completing the tricky chase, the skipper added.“He was very motivated. At that stage, we all felt in the change room that the game can be closed out, it can be done,” he said.“He’s been a very understated cricketer, but a top quality cricketer in the field, with the ball, and with the bat – priceless.”last_img read more

first_img(AP Photos) Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo “I think there’s some things that we could probably do gameplan-wise maybe to just get them going a little bit,” Bradford said. “Some easy completions, easy things out there, get the ball in their hands, let them touch it and then kind of build from there.” Bradford is more focused on fixing up his miscues from Week 1 that included an interception via an overthrow and what he dubbed “uncharacteristic” inaccuracy. After watching film, he attributed that inaccuracy with forcing the issue.“I think just being patient, even when the game gets where it was, continuing to take what’s there and just not try to force things,” Bradford said. “When you’re not 100 percent confident in throws, they tend not to be accurate ’cause you don’t feel great about it. I think there were a couple throws that I made where in my mind, I was like, ‘I don’t know if I should be making this throw’ and you go ahead and still try to make it. I think that’s resulted in some of the inaccuracies.”The quarterback said nothing on the offensive side of the ball raised red flags during the home loss to Washington. The Cardinals falling behind 21-0 in the first half and producing 36 total yards was a symptom of “a lot of small mistakes,” he added.Arizona head coach Steve Wilks, meanwhile, called the offensive line play inconsistent, especially in pass protection.And adding to the belief in the team’s maintained belief in its young wide receivers, who after Larry Fitzgerald produced a single catch for four yards, Bradford put the onus on himself and the play-calling by offensive coordinator Mike McCoy to get more out of second-year pro Chad Williams and rookie Christian Kirk. TEMPE, Ariz. — Narratives will ebb and flow all year long around the Arizona Cardinals’ quarterback position.Sam Bradford’s 153 passing yards, 4.5 yards per attempt, interception and 57.6 quarterback rating Sunday in the season opener took them one way. If he struggles more down the road, calls for rookie Josh Rosen to replace him will take them further in that direction. Should Bradford turn things around this Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams and beyond, he can control the narrative to some degree. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires 12 Comments   Share   Top Stories But sometimes, there are things a quarterback can’t control. Like words said by players on other teams.Ndamukong Suh, the Rams’ five-time Pro Bowl nose tackle, effectively circled the Los Angeles-Arizona matchup on the must-watch calendar a month ago by, well, circling it on his own planner.“I always mark the calendar when I have Sam Bradford on there, no matter what,” Suh said on the Around The NFL Podcast in August. “Whether it was when we were rookies, when he was in St. Louis or when he was any other place. I’ve always looked forward to going against him.”Related LinksRams’ Suh: ‘I always mark the calendar’ for Cards’ Sam BradfordThe Consensus Week 2: Cardinals’ battle cry: ‘We’re not Buffalo!’Cardinals players meet with Gov.

And like Bradford’s current detachment and unfamiliarity with the franchise that drafted him, which now resides in California, the quarterback doesn’t see much significance with one of the Rams’ most formidable defensive players challenging him by name.“I get it, I think everyone wants to hit me,” Bradford said Wednesday. “That’s kind of how it goes.
