Analysis of upper respiratory tract infections in mission circumstances
During this research a specific partial data set of the UN database was analyzed
from different aspects and evaluated in order to create an image about the prevalence and probable reasons of upper respiratory tract infections among soldiers
serving in the operation area.
The research indicates that the prevalence of upper respiratory tract infections
(URTIs), and the previously performed tonsillectomies, was the highest in one contingent. The statistical data demonstrates that the tonsillectomies may influence the
frequency of upper respiratory infections within the contingent.
