Abstract:

The volume is devoted to a discussion of monitoring systems. While the applications of physiological monitoring are many and varied, the primary concern here is with viability monitoring, the use of a measurement system to obtain factual, quantitative information about the physiological responses of a subject in a stressful environment, in order to plan protective measures which will ensure the safety and functional capability of that subject in such environments. Included are a description of instrumentation required for the measurement of individual physiological parameters, a discussion of related problems in system design, including simultaneous measurement of several parameters, data transmission or telemetry, and the use of magnetic tape recording as a system adjunct. Basic guidelines of system troubleshooting and interference reduction are also included. Section IV contains a brief survey of additional measurement techniques and data handling considerations which, while not state of the art or standard practice, will undoubtedly affect the field of physiological monitoring in the near future.
