Disease Alert Report (DAR)
Blood donors are under the overall guidance of what reference?
Individuals who were treated for malaria in the past must wait how long from the date treatment was finished until they are eligible to donate blood?
Individuals who were in a malaria-risk areas and remained to take chemoprophylaxis because of a perceived risk of exposure, must wait how long from the time chemoprophylaxis was finished?
Individuals who visited a malaria-risk area and remained asymptomatic, but were not required to take chemoprophylaxis because of negligible risk of exposure =, must wait how long to donate blood?
Any person who is deficient in what has risk of hemolysis associated with taking primaquine for chemoprophylaxis or treatment?
Report suspected or confirmed malaria cases in a DAR via what precedence message?
A malaria DAR should include the itinerary during the WHAT previous time frame and the types and duration of any chemoprophylaxis or treatment medications taken?
Vector surveillance and control measures consist of effective mosquito control programs of what type?
On an individual basis, what are the most important means, even more so than chemoprophylaxis for an individual to prevent becoming infected with malaria?
Personal Protective Measures
Traditionally, malaria chemoprophylaxis has been effectively accomplished with use of cholorquine and primaquine, however, in the past several years, resistance to WHAT has been demonstrated among malaria parasites in certain areas of the world into which Navy and Marine Corps personnel deploy or live?
Patterns of resistance and drug requirements can change frequently, therefore, Medial Department representatives of fleet units deploying to malaria-risk areas must contact the what prior to deployment for the latest requirements?
What is a screening test for the presence of chloroquine in the urine?
The Wilson-Edson Test has an approximately false negative rate of what percent?
Because malaria, in particular what type of malaria, can progress into a rapidly fatal course, the most important aspect of malaria treatment is suspecting this disease in the differential diagnosis of the patient and beginning immediate treatment?
Parenteral chlorogquine hydrochloried, quinidine gluconate, and quinine dihydrocholoride can be used in the treatment of severe cases of malaria where the patient is exhibiting signs of central nervous system involvement, has a very high and life threatening parasitemia, or cannot take what type of drugs?
What drugs are rapidly schizonticidal and therefore rapidly reduce the level of parasitemia?
The health information for international travel has comprehensive guidance by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and is revised and publishhed how often?
