Abstract:

A-10 pilots have experienced physiological events PEs which result in diminished mission effectiveness. A potential explanation for PEs in pilots is improper functioning of the breathing air delivery system. Physiological complications may occur due to insufficient oxygen control or the introduction of chemical contamination through engine bleed air or degrading materials in the life support system. Two studies were completed to measure chemical contamination and investigate the potential role in cognitive outcomes.
