Abstract:

The report is the personal experience data of naval aviators held as prisoners of war during the Southeast Asia conflict. Prisoner of war data provide a unique source of biomedical planning information, since the conditions and stresses found in a combat mishap are unlike those of the noncambat aviation accident. These differences often are directly responsible for the type and degree of injuries, and thus have a definite bearing on the effectiveness and adequacy of escape, survival, and rescue equipment.
