The Influence of Ethyl Alcohol Ingestion on a Target Task during Sustained +Gz Centrifugation
SCHOOL OF AEROSPACE MEDICINE BROOKS AFB TX
Pagination or Media Count:
Little information is available regarding the effects of alcohol combined with sustained G. Browne observed that alcohol decreased blackout tolerance and increased the incidence of nausea and disorientation occasionally associated with centrifugation-human performance, however, was not measured in this experiment. Considering the lack of knowledge in this area and the possibility of a synergistic decrease in human capability during exposure to increased G after alcohol ingestion, experiments were performed and the results are reported.
