situs inversus totalis

Interesting case for people to ponder, should people with situs inversus totalis be allowed to join the army providing they have no other co-morbidities?
No reason why they shoudn't be allowed if as you say there is nothing else unusual or detrimental to their health. It would cause problems should said person be wounded/injured, and as syledis has said there would need to be a way of labeling, whether on dog tags or under blood group.
Interesting case, there must be prior examples of this.
There was a REME chap on my last TELIC with this condition and it was clearly labelled on his CBA and clothing.
Tattoo'd on the chest with a big arrow saying "over there"?
yea the problem comes for chest drains etc where if you get it in the wrong side you can puncture the heart! In an emergency you might not see the dog tags especially on the ground or if the tags were blew off!
