Abstract:

One human subject was exposed to 43,000 feet for 12 hour a day for 82 days. From the seventy-fifth exposure he exhibited an increasing number and severity of aeroembolism symptoms. It is felt that aging played little or no part in the increasing susceptibility of the subject to aeroembolism. Author
