Abstract : Standard physical profiles given to soldiers with thyrotoxicosis do not inform the command structure that the soldier may well have difficulty learning, concentrating on important decisions, and functioning in a command role. As a consequence, important command and control decisions are made by a soldier who may not be psychologically performing at her highest level. Our objective was to determine if beta-adrenergic blockade would significantly improve the cognitive dysfunction associated with thyrotoxicosis.
