Abstract:

From June 22, 1955, through July 27, 1955, 100 volunteer airmen served as subjects in a study of survival rations in moist heat at Camp Atterbury, Indiana. The original data collected during the 36-day period of study on these 100 volunteer airmen are detailed in these appendices. In addition, special studies are reported on renal osmotic regulation and chemical analysis of sweat. A method for analyzing ketone bodies in blood, urine, and sweat is described together with a full report of alterations in ketone body metabolism observed during the 1954 winter study at Camp McCoy and the l955 summer study at Camp Atterbury.
