By C. A. Berry (auth.), Douglas E. (eds.)

This booklet is a set of clinical papers awarded on the XVIII overseas Congress of Aviation and area drugs held in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, from 15-18 September 1969. it truly is devoted to basic E. de Vries and Dr. ok. Vaan­ drager, President and Vice-President of the Congress, who wanted that this unsur­ handed alternate of medical info through unusual specialists of the inter­ nationwide aerospace clinical group be made on hand to all as a useful resource of data. i'm deeply thankful to the Congress Committee for honoring me with this editorship, to the authors for filing normally first-class manuscripts and to the writer for compiling a publication of such prime quality. This publication comprises either major topic papers, given by means of invited teachers, and chosen loose Communications on the Congress. major subject matters have been 'physiology of atmospheric strain' (papers via Ernsting, Meijne, Sluijter, Behnke), 'vestibular difficulties in aviation medication' (papers through Melvill Jones, Benson, Oosterveld, Groen, Guedry and Benson, Brandt, Henriksson and Nilsson), 'aviation and cardiology' (papers through Blackburn, wooden) and 'space drugs' (paper by means of Berry). The loose Communications herein concentrate on many parts of continuous and well timed curiosity to clinicians and investigators in aerospace medication. choice and health and wellbeing upkeep of pilots, clinical difficulties in airline passengers, use of the centrifuge as a healing machine, and circadian rhythm results on man's psychophysiological kingdom obtain specific attention.

The acquisition of biomedical information from astronauts flying space missions is one of the most complicated yet extremely important problems of aerospace medicine. Even elementary physiological studies, let alone on-board data recording of various physiological parameters are seriously hindered by spaceflight conditions.

Red blood cells. As shown in Table XV, there was essentially no change in red cell mass in Apollo 7 and 8 crewmembers. This might be due to the fact 5 to 7% nitrogen remained in the space cabins from the original prelaunch atmosphere (Figure 1) and had an inhibitory effect on red cell lysis. 4% in red cell mass. A significant loss of red cell mass occurred in the Apollo 9 mission. The space cabin atmosphere in this mission was different from that in the Apollo 7 and 8 spacecraft, since early in the flight.

A distortion of the recording). Fixed physiological sensing equipment can cause disconfort in astronauts, especially over a long period of time. It can also restrain their movements and intelfere with their performance. There are several well-known techniques of applying physiological sensors: (1) fixation with straps; (2) sewing into under-garments; (3) pasting on to the skin; (4) inserting into a natural body opening, such as the mouth cavity, an external ear canal, nostrils, etc. ; (5) insertioI].
