    Principles of Clinical Medicine for Space Flight pdf

    Book Description:

    Advances over the past decades in space flight technology have allowed U.S., Russian, and other space programs to increase not only the frequency of manned space flights but also increase the duration of these flights. As such, a large body of knowledge has been developed regarding how space flight affects the health of the personnel involved. Now, for the first time, this body of clinical knowledge on how to diagnose and treat conditions that either develop during a mission or because of a task has been compiled by Drs. Michael R. Barratt and Sam L. Pool of the NASA/Johnson Space Center. This text is a must-have for all those associated with aerospace medicine.
