Aviation Medicine: Selected Reviews

JAMA. 1960;172(2):205. doi:10.1001/jama.1960.03020020085027

This book contains reports by 12 scientists who reviewed selected topics and assessed recent advances in the instrumentation, methodology, and analytical techniques of interest in aviation medicine culled from many publications, over 700 of which are cited as references. Their aim was to document condensed sources of information summarizing specialized portions of the aeromedical and related sciences. While great emphasis was directed to respiratory physiolgy and metabolism, the papers cover a wide range of subjects of interest not only to physicians in aviation medicine but also to other scientists who need a condensed guide to specialized sources of data. This book should be a valuable reference manual to all aerospace medical research scientists. Some parts are highly technical and will be appreciated chiefly by research and laboratory workers. The editor has included in his introduction brief summaries of each paper.

These papers deal with spirometric methods, high-speed motion picture photography
