Springer, Mar 20, 2008 - Medical - 616 pages
Advances over the past decades in space flight technology have allowed US, Russian and other space programs to not only increase the frequency of manned space flights but also to increase the duration of these flights. As such, a large body of knowledge has been developed regarding the ways in which space flight affects the health of the personnel involved. Now, for the first time, this body of clinical knowledge on how to diagnosis and treat conditions that either develop during a mission or because of a mission has been compiled by Drs. Michael Barratt and Sam L. Pool of the NASA/Johnson Space Center. Complete with detailed information on the physiological and psychological affects of space flight as well as how to diagnosis and treat everything from dental concerns to decompression to dermatological problems encountered during space flight, this text is a must have for all those associated with aerospace medicine.
