  1. The usefulness of computer-controlled potentiometric stripping analysis for environmental water analysis in a combat-zone hospital.

    Article - En anglais

    Chemical water-quality determination is an essential element of deployed public health programs.

    Our experience in the former Republic of Yugoslavia included the use of a rather unique piece of equipment known as Tracelab (Radiometer Corporation, Copenhagen, Denmark).

    During the 6-month deployment, we were able to analyze on-site piped and bottled drinking water available in the host country, particularly focusing on its lead (Pb) content.

    Bottled water averaged 7 parts per billion Pb, whereas camp supply water was about 35 parts per billion Pb.

    Although no particular health-related problems occurred, we were able to provide important reassurances through on-site testing.
