Abstract:

The session began with reviews of organizational concepts of fatal aircraft-accident investigation as developed and ppplied in the United States, Germany, and France. Determination of medical jurisdiction is frequently chaotic. The long-range capabilities of modern aircraft frequently require the application of local, state, national, international, and admiralty law. Simple, logical applications of basic methods of identifying victims of mass disasters were reviewed. Discussions of cardiovascular disease, head injuries, and accidents involving helicopters and agricultural aircraft prompted expressions of frustration at the lack of significant modification of the epidemiology of these factors. Presentations were made of significant advances in the application of special techniques in histology, toxicology, radiology, and analysis of injury patterns.
