The #1 Guide to Flight Physiology_Now Updated and Expanded with the Latest INSIGHTS for ENHANCING AIRCREW SAFE PERFORMANCE! The Third Edition of Basic Flight Physiology has been completely updated and expanded with information on THAT WILL REDUCE PILOT IMPAIRMENT IN FLIGHT. This definitive guide to PHYSIOLOGICAL human factors in the flying environment provides a wealth of preventive measures pilots can take to anticipate and compensate for HUMAN FACTORS that cause 70% of all aviation accidents. Packed with over 100 INFORMATIVE illustrations, this resource contains UNDERSTANDABLE coverage of THE MANY PHYSIOLOGICAL FACTORS THAT AFFECT PILOT PERFORMANCE PLUS crew resource management, in-flight medical emergencies, health maintenance programs, and more. The Third Edition of Basic Flight Physiology features: Methods for dealing with vertigo and DISORIENTATION Critical information on tolerance to FATIGUE Techniques for handling self-imposed and environmental stresses Guidance on the effects of caffeine, alcohol, and OVER-THE-COUNTER DRUGS Explore Every Aspect of “Medical Airworthiness”: • Human Factors Defined • Basic Human Anatomy • The Atmosphere • Situation Awareness • Altitude Physiology • Hearing and Vibration • Vision • Orientation • Self-Imposed Medical Stress • Environmental Stresses • Sleep, Jet Lag, and Fatigue • Acceleration • Crew Resource Management • Human Factors of Automation • In-Flight Medical Emergencies • Health Maintenance Program • Medical Standards, Regulation, and Certification
Welcome to the new gold standard in critical care transport training. Published in conjunction with the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) and the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP), Critical Care Transport offers cutting edge content relevant to any healthcare provider training in critical care transport. Like no other textbook in this market, Critical Care Transport thoroughly prepares medical professionals to function as competent members of a critical care team by covering the material that everyone--paramedics, nurses, physicians, and specialty crew--needs to know to operate effectively in the prehospital critical care environment. This book meets the curricula of major critical care training programs, including University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC). It covers both ground and flight transport, and meets the objectives of critical care transport certification exams such as the Certified Flight Paramedic (FP-C) exam administered by the Board for Critical Care Transport Paramedic Certification. Content includes information specific to prehospital critical care transport, such as flight physiology, lab analysis, hemodynamic monitoring, and specialized devices such as the intra-aortic balloon pump. Standard topics such as airway management, trauma, and pharmacology are covered in the context of critical care. Chapters have been authored by leading critical care professionals across the country and represent the most current, state-of-the-art information on management of critical care patients.
This publication contains training guidance for flight crew wishing to obtain a pilots licence in the UK and training providers of both UK National and JAA requirements in the field of flight crew licensing, with the associated rules and regulations. It is divided into two main sections dealing with: licensing, administration and standardisation procedures employed by the Safety Regulation Group, including references to JAR-FCL (European Joint Aviation Requirements for Flight Crew Licensing) documentation; and operating requirements and safety practice standards in the preparation for flight, with data from established information sources such as aeronautical information circulars and CAA safety sense leaflets.

Human error is cited as a major cause in over 70% of accidents, andit is widely agreed that a better understanding of humancapabilities and limitations - both physical and psychological -would help reduce human error and improve flight safety. This book was first published when the UK Civil AviationAuthority introduced an examination in human performance andlimitations for all private and professional pilot licences. Nowthe Joint Aviation Authorities of Europe have published a newsyllabus as part of their Joint Aviation Requirements for FlightCrew Licensing. The book has been completely revised and rewritten to takeaccount of the new syllabus. The coverage of basic aviationpsychology has been greatly expanded, and the section on aviationphysiology now includes topics on the high altitude environment andon health maintenance. Throughout, the text avoids excessive jargonand technical language. "There is no doubt that this book provides an excellent basicunderstanding of the human body, its limitations, the psychologicalprocesses and how they interact with the aviation environment. I amcurrently studying for my ATPL Ground Exams and I found this bookto be an invaluable aid. It is equally useful for those studyingfor the PPL and for all pilots who would like to be reminded oftheir physiological and psychological limitations." –General Aviation, June 2002
