Since its first edition,'Aviation Medicine' has applied current understanding in medicine, physiology and the behavioural sciences to the stresses which are faced by both civil and military aircrew on a daily basis. It has become the recommended textbook for those taking the worldwide recognized Diploma in Aviation Medicine of the Royal College of Physicians, and similar overseas qualifications.



This third edition has been revised and updated by a multi-disciplinary team of experienced contributors, under the expert guidance of Professor John Ernsting and his co-editors.



This is an essential reference for all civil or military aviation medicine practitioners, those preparing for professional examinations and those in the many disciplines of the life sciences studying aviation. It is also recommended reading for those with an involvement in aviation medicine and a wider interest in the medical problems of professional or recreational flying, air transport and the aviation industry.
