About the book

Injury and Disease in Military Operation and Combat Action - Etiology, Pathogenesis, Countermeasures and Casualty care. Implementation of the modern conventional weapon systems and tactics causes newly emerging types of injuries besides those well-known from the past times. Along with this, a pervasive problem in the current nuclear era is a high risk of nuclear conflicts. Such incidents could produce dreadful injuries that must be contemplated for diagnostics and countermeasures.

Thus, the book project is on the complex problems engendered by injuries due to direct singular or combined multi-factorial impacts, their ancillary effects and by disease related to military operations and combat actions. With this focus the specific objective of the book is to overview of current standpoints on: (i) classification, etiology and pathogenesis of combat-related injuries; (ii) body systems interactive effects, impairment of systems homeostasis and metabolic dysfunction due to the injury and diseases; and (iii) medical care, therapy as well as shirt-term and long-term prognosis of the outcomes.

Moreover, the book chapters are to encompass analyses and reports on: (i) the acute, early and long-term management of combat injury including point-of-injury, en route, and facility-based care; (ii) development of advanced modalities/diagnostics and biomedical countermeasures against stress impacts and injury during training and field operations; and (iii) data from computational biomedicine, simulation and modeling of combat impacts based on translational R&D.

About the editor

Nikolai Gorbunov

Henry M. Jackson Foundation for the Advancement of Military Medicine

Dr. Gorbunov obtained his Ph.D. degree in Biology from the Russian Academy Sciences. Then, he was a recipient of the NRC NAS (http://sites.nationalacademies.org/pga/rap/) and the Department of Energy fellowship awards to pursue postdoctoral training in translational science at the University of Pittsburgh and the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (https://www.emsl.pnl.gov/emslweb Washington, USA). His translational research area has encompassed molecular pathology of trauma and countermeasures against acute radiation injury that was explored at the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research (http://wrair-www.army.mil) and the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences. His research interests are the disease-specific mechanisms driving alterations and defense responses in organelles, cells and tissues constituting biological barriers. With this perspective, the main objectives of his research are : i) to define the key components and pathways which regulate adaptive homeostasis and sustain intrinsic resistance to the harmful exposures and mediate recovery from the produced stress, cytotoxicity and damage; and (ii) to employ the acquired knowledge for advancement of injury-specific therapeutic modalities.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Iva Lipović

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
