Abstract:

This Lecture Series will update the information presented in the 1987 AGARD Short Course on the Cardiopulmonary Aspects of Aerospace Medicine, and will be of primary relevance to military internists and cardiologists with an interest in aviation medicine, and to military Flight Surgeons. Topics to be discussed will include techniques for and utility of screening for asymptomatic coronary artery disease in an aircrew population the aeromedical disposition of aviators with coronary disease the usefulness of primary coronary prevention programmes, based on data from recent intervention studies and meta-analyses the aeromedical implications of ECG abnormalities and structuralvalvular cardiac anomalies based on data from USAFAL Study Groups the utility of screening aircrew candidates with echocardiography and echocardiographic findings in trained aircrew hypertension in aircrew and the aeromedical implications of a number of pulmonary diseases, notably asthma and airway hyper- reactivity, obstructive pulmonary disease, pneumothorax and sarcoid. The Lecture Series will be designed to be interactive rather than strictly didactic to encourage discussion of problems particular to participating NATO countries.
