Abstract : The report presents in drawings and text the functional design requirements of the Bureau of Medicine and Surgery for the following types of shipboard medical spaces: (1) Aviation examining and EENT room; (2) eye, ear, nose and throat (EENT) room; (3) surgical dressing room. This technical report takes into account the existing equipment limitations and shipboard constraints. Using the present state-of-the-art as a baseline, an outline of an R and D program will be developed. Accomplishment of such a program is expected to reduce or to eliminate, in future ships, the effects of the existing equipment limitations and shipboard constraints.
