Malaria Prevention and Control

2

Historically, U.S. military campaigns fought in what environments have been seriously compromised by malaria?

Tropical

3

Commanders will ensure what report on any suspected or confirmed malaria case is sent out as soon as possible to all required addresses whenever a malaria threat exists?

Disease Alert Report (DAR)

4

Blood donors are under the overall guidance of what reference?

NAVMED P-5120

5

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?

3 years

6

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?

3 years

7

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?

3 months

8

Any person who is deficient in what has risk of hemolysis associated with taking primaquine for chemoprophylaxis or treatment?

G-6-PD

9

Report suspected or confirmed malaria cases in a DAR via what precedence message?

Priority

10

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?

3 months

11

Vector surveillance and control measures consist of effective mosquito control programs of what type?

Anopheles

12

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

13

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?

Choloquine

14

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?

NAVENPVNTMEU

15

What is a screening test for the presence of chloroquine in the urine?

Wilson-Edson Test

16

The Wilson-Edson Test has an approximately false negative rate of what percent?

15%

17

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?

Plasmodium Falciparum

18

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?

Oral Drugs

19

What drugs are rapidly schizonticidal and therefore rapidly reduce the level of parasitemia?

Quinine-type

20

The health information for international travel has comprehensive guidance by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and is revised and publishhed how often?

Annually

21

What is a comprehensive hardcover textbook for clinical tropical medicine?

Hunter's Tropical Medicine

22

What conduct tropical medicine research and can provide information on the epidemiology of malaria, antimalarial drug resistance, and mosquito vectors within their countries or geographic areas of research?

Naval Medical Research Units
