  • Iraqi Army medics and civilian nurses speak with U.S. Navy physicians and corpsmen discussing trauma care July 15, 2006, at a U.S. Navy medical facility at Camp Al Qa'im, Iraq. Iraqi Army medics and civilian nurses spent two days receiving medical training from U.S. military physicians at the camp, located along the Iraqi-Syrian border in Iraq's western Al Anbar Province. U.S. doctors showed the Iraqis crucial life-saving skills for treating casualties in combat, such as suturing wounds and stopping life-threatening blood loss. The training, which consisted of several hours of classroom time and practical application, is designed to teach the soldiers and nurses how to provide emergency-trauma care for patients in a combat zone. The Iraqis also received training which will enable them to treat patients for parasites - such as hook worms - which have caused a variety of health problems in locals here, to include mental retardation and anemia in children.
