  • Optimizing the physical ergonomics indices for the use of partial pressure suits. [Journal Article]
    Appl Ergon. 2015 Mar; 47:72-83.Ding L, Li X, … Zhou Q
  • This study developed an ergonomic evaluation system for the design of high-altitude partial pressure suits (PPSs). A total of twenty-one Chinese males participated in the experiment which tested three types of ergonomics indices (manipulative mission, operational reach and operational strength) were studied using a three-dimensional video-based motion capture system, a target-pointing board, a ha…
  • Overview of medical operations for a manned stratospheric balloon flight. [Journal Article]
    Aviat Space Environ Med. 2013 Mar; 84(3):237-41.Blue RS, Law J, … Clark JB
  • CONCLUSIONS: Medical operations were found to be highly successful when field-tested during this stratospheric flight, and the experience allowed for refinement of medical operations for future flights. The lessons learned and practices established for this program can easily be used to tailor a plan specific to other aviation or spaceflight events.
  • Pathophysiology, prevention, and treatment of ebullism. [Review]
    Aviat Space Environ Med. 2013 Feb; 84(2):89-96.Murray DH, Pilmanis AA, … Clark JB
  • CONCLUSIONS: Available literature suggests that the pathophysiology of ebullism leads to predictable and often treatable injuries, and that many exposures may be survivable. With the growing number of high altitude and space-related activities, more individuals will be at risk for ebullism. An integrated medical protocol can provide guidance for the prevention and treatment of ebullism and help to mitigate this risk in the future.
  • An experimental study on the ergonomics indices of partial pressure suits. [Journal Article]
    Appl Ergon. 2013 May; 44(3):393-403.Li X, Ding L, … Zhou Q
  • Partial pressure suits (PPSs) are used under high altitude, low-pressure conditions to protect the pilots. However, the suit often limits pilot's mobility and work efficiency. The lack of ergonomic data on the effects of PPSs on mobility and performance creates difficulties for human factor engineers and cockpit layout specialists. This study investigated the effects of PPSs on different ergonomi…
  • Military anti-shock garment: Historical relic or a device with unrealized potential? [Journal Article]
    J Emerg Trauma Shock. 2008 Jul; 1(2):63-9.Lateef F, Kelvin T
  • Military anti-shock trousers represents a medical device which has engendered very divergent views, even up to today. From the time the concept was formulated in 1903 by surgeon George W Crile, there have been significant swings in opinion and evidence. The guidelines, where available, are often kept relatively general and cautious. As a spin-off to the mechanism and technology, several alternati…
  • Contemporary conception of anti-G protection of cosmonauts in flights aboard "Soyuz" space vehicles. [Journal Article]
    J Gravit Physiol. 2004 Jul; 11(2):P237-8.Kotovskaya AR, Vil-Viliams IF, Lukianiuk VY
  • To ensure safety of cosmonauts impacted by +Gx loads during insertion into orbit of a Soyuz-type space vehicle, it is critical to conduct appropriate medical selection of candidates to space flights, to give them proper complete physical and specialized centrifuge training, and to make it sure that at the moment of actual injection the cosmonaut's posture is optimal relative to the g-vector and t…
  • [The protection effect of a new combined anti-G measure]. [Journal Article]
    Zhongguo Ying Yong Sheng Li Xue Za Zhi. 2005 Aug; 21(3):344-8.Jin Z, Geng XC, … Yan GD
  • CONCLUSIONS: The new combined anti-G measure could meet the requirement of +9.0 Gz protection for high performance plane. How to prevent the occurrence of neck injury and alleviate the pain induced by G when using this measure should be studied further.
  • Opinions of trauma practitioners regarding prehospital interventions for critically injured patients. [Journal Article]
    J Trauma. 2005 Mar; 58(3):509-15; discussion 515-7.Salomone JP, Ustin JS, … Feliciano DV
  • CONCLUSIONS: Most trauma practitioners believe that emergency medical services providers should attempt intubation for a patient with a severe traumatic brain injury, should treat decompensated shock in a patient with penetrating torso trauma but maintain the patient in a relatively hypotensive state, and should apply and inflate the pneumatic antishock garment for a suspected pelvic fracture accompanied by decompensated shock if the patient is 20 to 40 minutes from a trauma center. The recommendations of trauma practitioners regarding appropriate prehospital care are significantly influenced by the time required for transport to the trauma center.
  • Perioperative venous thromboembolism prophylaxis in Israel: a survey of academic surgical departments. [Journal Article]
    Eur J Haematol. 2004 Aug; 73(2):104-8.Ellis MH, Elis A
  • CONCLUSIONS: This study confirms that academic surgical departments in Israel conform to standard VTE prophylaxis guidelines. However, considerable variations in practice exist regarding the means of prophylaxis, onset of prophylaxis and its duration. These areas should be the focus of ongoing educational efforts including the development of uniform practice guidelines to improve the quality of care regarding VTE prophylaxis. Furthermore, attention should be given to methods for decreasing hemorrhage caused by LMWH and unfractionated heparin usage.
