PTSD symptom trajectories among deployed U.S. military personnel. Combat and Operational Stress Research Quarterly Summer 2012

Analysis of U.S. service members who had deployed either once or multiple times revealed that both groups shared very similar PTSD trajectories over time, with the vast majority (83% single deployers, 85% multiple deployers) displaying a low-stable (resilient) symptom pattern that lasted from pre-deployment to several years post-deployment. The other PTSD symptom trajectory patterns included moderate-improving (8%, 8.5%), worsening-chronic (6.7%, 4.5%), high-stable (2.2% single deployers only) and high-improving (2.2% multiple deployers only).

New-onset PTSD/depression risk in deployed healthcare professionals Combat and Operational Stress Research Quarterly Summer 2013

Military healthcare professionals have similar rates of new-onset PTSD or depression compared to those in other military occupations. Similar to other types of military personnel, combat exposure was the key factor that increased the rates of new-onset PTSD/depression in this sample, as deployed healthcare professionals with combat exposure had twice the odds of new-onset PTSD/depression compared to those deployed without combat exposure.
