Aerospace Medicine: Mayo Clinic Researchers Are Looking Ahead

Aviation medicine, also called flight medicine or aerospace medicine; is a preventive or occupational medicine in which the patients/subjects are pilots, aircrews, or astronauts. The specialty strives to treat or prevent conditions to which aircrews are particularly susceptible; applies medical knowledge to the human factors in aviation and is thus a critical component of aviation safety. Space medicine and research Mayo…

Regulation Of Energy Balance During Space Flight

Humans have been present in space for more than 50 years. Data generated during human spaceflights have demonstrated that the space environment; by microgravity, 90-min light/dark cycles, and confinement; impacts almost all physiological systems inducing a myriad of adaptive responses. These alterations of the body’s physiology can jeopardize crew health and performance and thereby impact…

Space Flight: Current Knowledge And Future Applications

The researcher did research on, spaceflight is that astronauts do not feel the effects of gravity and therefore experience a weightlessness sensation, also called zero gravity or microgravity. Technically, escaping the bonds of gravity; which can simulate in parabolic flights; is to disrupt both vestibular and proprioceptive systems with symptoms including confusion in the sense…

Astronauts: Sleep Quantity And Quality Is Required To Maintain Vigilance

Sleep is regulating by two oscillatory processes; the circadian process and the homoeostatic process. The circadian process oscillates on a near 24 h rhythm and defines the sleep inclination periods. Under normal conditions, the circadian process is synchronizing with the light/dark cycle. Astronauts witness short sunrises 16 times a day; as the International Space Station (ISS)…

Orthopedic Device Companies Hastening To Enter The Space

The researcher is leading the way of bringing robot-assisted surgery to the orthopedic space. The Kalamazoo, Mich. based orthopedic device giant has already placed more than 650 Mako robots around the world; with more than 76,900 knee and hip replacement procedures performed in 2018 and double-digit growth in installations expected in 2019. In the process,…

Aims To Keep Astronauts Healthy In Space

Falling ill while traveling is an unfortunate yet common occurrence. Even a minor bug can ruin an entire trip. But for astronauts, getting sick on a long space voyage would have far more serious consequences than a little spoiled fun. The Rodent Research 12 (RR-12); investigation joins a series of studies aboard the International Space…

The Global Market For Aerospace Medicine

The Increasing technology and unmanned aerial vehicles have drastically changed the man-machine-interface; hence a shift of focus of the practice of aerospace medicine. Aerospace medicine is as a specialized field of medicine which is concerned; with the maintenance of health and performance of aircrew in space and aviation environment. Aerospace medicine promotes the safety and…

Better Radiation Diagnostic Test For Astronauts

Researchers at the Belgian Nuclear Research Centre (SCK-CEN) are attempting to create a better diagnostic test for radiation exposure after accidental; exposures that potentially could save thousands of lives but also astronauts during long term space missions to Mars. Their study compiled a list of genes and specific exons that are specifically by external ionizing…
