Abstract : In this report, an attempt is made to describe the characteristics and suggest the management in space of possible medical problems which might arise from hazards of space operations; attention will therefore not be given to possible naturally-occurring diseases. Writing is oriented to missions during which, due to the time required to return to Earth, the diagnosis and interim treatment of medical problems will have to be carried out in space. Therefore it is assumed in this report that diagnostic and treatment facilities will be available, and that advanced spacecraft concerned will provide a shirtsleeve environment in. which multidisciplined crews, including medically-trained personnel, will be able to live in - reasonable comfort.
