War Surgery and Medicine



Important aspects of the problem of dyspepsia in army administration may be summarised as follows:


Dyspeptics with a definite and confirmed history of dyspepsia should not be accepted in the Army for overseas service.


If accepted on a lower grade for Home service they should be posted so that they can have their meals at home.


In the Army every effort should be made to retain and treat a man in his unit, and consultation should be arranged at that level. If a man is evacuated to Base he seldom returns to his unit.


If the history and assessment of the patient warrants it a man should be returned at once to New Zealand without prolonged investigation and treatment at Base.
