Long-term outcomes in US Service members after combat injury

Project Details


This project utilized two different cohorts of combat casualties. In the first, we examined service members that were critically injured in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. In the second, we utilized a cohort of 10,000 injured servicemembers and compared them to 10,000 age, service, and sex matched controls. This work resulted in multiple publications showing that combat injury is associated with a wide variety of poor outcomes, including: hypertension, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic kidney disease, post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, depression, insomnia, and obstructive sleep apnea.
