Standard Terms for Diagnoses, Anatomical Locations, and Operations

Treating a patient in shock through the use of plasma. Also of interest is the camouflaged painted helmet seen on the soldier sitting at right.

Introduction:

In World War 2, the Medical Department provided lists of Standard Terms to be used as a guide in preparing Records of Sick and Wounded. It was not intended that they be rigidly adhered to; any well-established terms in medical usage could be employed also; it was just meant to be followed as far as was practicable.

Any new terms that were later inserted, were to be placed in their proper alphabetical order and assigned numbers within the limits of the already existing numerical codes. When diseases or injuries occurred for which no terms were furnished in the lists, or for which the terms given were of a general character, they were to be recorded with such scientific terms as commonly applied by the profession, in brief and accurate descriptions.

Special notes were required in case of malingering, or feigned diseases, and of the means employed for their detection.

“Register of Sick and Wounded” (Form 52, M.D.) – a Register of the Sick and Wounded of every military establishment or force attended by a Medical officer (or civilian Physician) will be maintained in peace and in the Zone of Interior during war! The Register of patients will be kept on Form 52, M.D. A case recorded on this Form is said to be on the Register. Cases taken up on the Register will be borne thereon until final disposition is effected; during this period, cases are said to be currently on the Register. Register cards will be legibly written in blue or black ink, using the typewriter when practicable. Abbreviations authorized by the War Department may be used. When space on the card (front part) is insufficient, record will be continued on the back of the card or, if still more space is required, upon an extension slip.

Since Form 52 dated from before WW2 it still held some of the older abbreviations and headings such as: Gar. Pris. (Garrison Prisoner), Gen. Pris. (General Prisoner), DD Susp. (Dishonorable Discharge Suspended), DD Comp. (Dishonorable Discharge Completed), W (White), C (Colored), F (Filipino), PR (Puerto Rican), I (Indian), V.O.C.O. (Verbal Order of Commanding Officer), LOD (Line Of Duty),  EAD (Extended Active Duty), ADT (Active Duty Training), etc.

It is important to note that units other than Hospitals, such as the Medical Detachment (attached to Regiments for instance), when located in garrison, on a Post, a Camp, or Station in the ZI, rendered a monthly “Report of Sick and Wounded” for patients under their control, in the same manner as Hospitals. However, when moving between Stations, in the field, on maneuvers, or in the Theater of Operations, these units were to use the “Emergency Medical Tag” (Form 52b, M.D.) in lieu of Form 52, M.D.)! Hospitals, that were part of a Field Force also submitted a monthly Report of Sick and Wounded, but were to use “Field Medical Record” (Forms 52c and 52d, M.D.) in lieu of Form 52.

Standard Terms for Operations:

The Standard Terms for Operations listed below were to be used as a guide in preparing Records of Sick and Wounded. They were to be followed as far as practicable. When operations were performed for which no terms were furnished in the list, they were to be recorded with such scientific terms commonly applied to them by the medical profession, and briefly and accurately described. When new terms were inserted in the list they were to be placed in their proper alphabetical order and assigned numbers within the limits of the numerical codes present.

Illustration showing preparation of a patient for a Lithotomy (incision of urinary bladder to remove stones).

Many medical terms are compounded of root words, and this is especially true of terms describing surgical operations. The word describing an organ is combined with another root word describing the operation performed on it. Example: the word tonsil combined with the suffix – ectomy means surgical removal, such as the term tonsillectomy which designates the operation for surgical removal of the tonsils.

Illustration showing surface areas of the Upper Body (head and neck).

A few more common suffixes describing surgical procedures are:

-desis > surgical fixation by fusion (as in Arthrodesis) -ectomy > removal (as in Cecectomy) -graphy > X-Ray examination, after introduction of a contrast medium (as in Roentgenography)   -lysis > loosening from adhesions (as in Ureterolysis) -pexy > surgical fixation (as in Nephropexy) -plasty > building up or restoration (as in Tenoplasty) -rrhaphy > closure by sutures of an organ or cavity (as in Gastrorrhaphy) -scopy > inspection of the interior of an organ through an instrument (as in Bronchoscopy) -stomy > forming of an artificial opening (as in Cystostomy Transperitoneal) -tomy > cutting open of an organ or cavity (as in Arteriotomy)
