  • The USS CARL VINSON arrived in theater on 15 January, 3 days after the earthquake. Medical crew members evaluated and treated 60 American and Haitian patients and performed 12 surgeries onboard. The VINSON was augmented with a partial Fleet Surgical Team composed of a second general surgeon, nurse anesthetist, surgical technician, and a critical care nurse. Surgeries included amputations, laparotomy, foreign body removal from the brain of a young girl performed by Dr. Sanjay Gupta (CNN Medical Correspondent), and wound incision and drainage. Two patients were medevaced onboard for acute renal failure from rhabdomyolysis secondary to crush injuries. Both of these patients died of cardiac arrest (elevated potassium suspected). Another noteworthy case was a mother whose infant was born onboard USS MOHAWK (USCG) and medevaced to the USS Carl Vinson when the neonate was only 3 hours old. The Vinson’s family practice physician cared for them. Mom decided to name the baby boy "Vinson" after the USS CARL VINSON. The USS CARL VINSON left theater on 30 January after approximately 2 weeks.
