Ernsting's Aviation and Space Medicine applies current understanding in medicine, physiology and the behavioural sciences to the medical challenges and stresses that are faced by both civil and military aircrew, and their passengers, on a daily basis. The fifth edition of this established textbook has been revised and updated by a multi-disciplinary team of experienced contributors, and includes new chapters on space physiology and medicine, passenger safety, rotary wing operation by land and sea, and UAVs. It remains the recommended textbook for those studying for the Diploma in Aviation Medicine of the Faculty of Occupational Medicine of the Royal College of Physicians, recognized worldwide as a standard in the field, and for similar overseas qualifications. Ernsting's Aviation and Space Medicine remains an essential companion for all civil and military aviation medicine practitioners, both when preparing for professional examinations and in daily practice, and for those in the many disciplines of the behavioural and life sciences that include some study of aviation, its physiology and related issues. It is also recommended reading for those with a wider interest in the medical problems of professional or recreational flying, air transport and the aviation industry.

Pilot Mental Health Assessment and Support

A practitioner's guide

The presentation of mental illness at work has different implications and consequences depending on the specific nature of the job, work context, regulatory framework and risks for the employee, organisation and society. Naturally there are certain occupational groups where human factors and/or mental illness could impair safety and mental acuity, and with potentially devastating consequences. For pilots, the medical criteria for crew licensing are stipulated by regulatory aviation authorities worldwide, and these include specific mental illness exclusions. The challenge of assessment for mental health problems is, however, complex and the responsibility for psychological screening and testing falls to a range of different specialists and groups including AMEs (authorised aviation medical examiners), GPs and physicians, airline human resources departments, psychologists, human factor specialists and pilots themselves. Extending and developing the ideas of Aviation Mental Health (2006), which described a range of psychological issues and problems that may affect pilots and the consequences of these, this book presents an authoritative, comprehensive and practical guide to modern, evidence-based practice in the field of mental health assessment, treatment and care. It features contributions from experts in the field drawn from several countries, professions and representing a range of aviation-related organisations, displaying a range of different skills and methods that can be used for the clinical assessment of pilots and in relation to specific mental-health problems and syndromes.

Culture and Defence in Brazil

An Inside Look at Brazil's Aerospace Strategies

This volume examines the connection between culture and defence by providing an inside look at Brazil’s aerospace strategies. Brazil is becoming increasingly important geopolitically, and several studies have sought to further understanding of this new position in the international arena. This volume aims to provide a better understanding of the Brazilian nation, its security dilemmas, and how the country seeks to develop its defence training process and improve its professional military education. Organised into two parts, the chapters offer academic dialogues on several aspects of this topic, including public politics and the law, joint operations, human factors and the government interchanges with industry. The first section analyses Brazilian defence policy and strategy, discussing different aspects of aerospace power and Brazilian security perspectives. Chapters discuss the relationship between Brazil and the United States, which blend aspects of the generation of knowledge, science, technology and innovation, and point to economic issues and the Defence Industrial Base. Specific implications of the Brazilian air space, compared with Europe and the United States, also are exposed. In addition, a vision of cyberspace implications for the national power, a present-day question for the entire planet, is also presented. Thereafter, the second section looks at specific aspects of professional military education and explains the Brazilian approach to strengthening its aerospace power. This includes military education and performance, interdisciplinary studies, working jointly, multivariate analysis and cases. This book will be of much interest to students of military studies, defence studies, gender issues, crises management and decision making, Latin American politics and International Relations in general.

In dem vorliegenden Lehrbuch wird erstmals eine zusammenfassende Darstellung festkörperspektroskopischer Methoden und ihrer Verwendung zur Analyse der elektronischen und gitterdynamischen Struktur der Festkörper gegeben. Die Methoden erstrecken sich einerseits über den ganzen Bereich des elektromagnetischen Spektrums, betreffen andererseits aber auch die Spektroskopie mit Teilchen wie Elektronen, Neutronen, Positronen, Mymesonen, usw. Das Buch gibt damit erstmals eine grundlegende, stark diversifizierte und dem heutigen Stand der Untersuchungstechnik entsprechende Darstellung der Festkörperspektroskopie. Ziel des Lehrbuches ist es, dem Studenten und Leser allgemein einen einfachen und direkten Einstieg in die Methoden und Möglichkeiten einer modernen Festkörperspektroskopie zu vermitteln, der ihm die weitere Verfolgung wissenschaftlicher und technischer Arbeiten auf dem speziellen Fachgebiet ermöglicht.

Das Institut für Luftfahrtmedizin in Hamburg-Eppendorf (1927-1945)

In der vorliegenden Abhandlung wird die Gründungsgeschichte und das Betätigungsfeld des ersten deut-schen luftfahrtmedizinischen Instituts in Hamburg-Eppendorf dargestellt, mit dessen Aufbau in 1927 begonnen wurde. Der Internist und Ärztliche Direktor des Allgemeinen Kran-kenhauses Eppendorf, Ludolph Brauer (1865-1951), gilt als einer der Wegbereiter der deutschen Luftfahrtmedizin. Nach Jahren der Stagnation nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg war er es, der einen Neuanfang in der Hansestadt machte: Sein der Tuberkulose-Forschungsansalt angegliedertes Institut für me-dizinische Forschung auf dem Gebiet der Luftfahrt wurde 1927 ins Leben gerufen und nach erfolgtem Ausbau 1931 als selbständiges Institut für Luftfahrtmedizin und Klimafor-schung ins Vereinsregister eingetragen. Im Rahmen der Gleichschaltung wurde das Institut seit 1935 durch das Reichs-luftfahrtministerium (RLM) kontrolliert und 1939 als Außen-stelle des Berliner Luftfahrtmedizinischen Forschungsinstituts vollends dem RLM unterstellt. Es hatte Bestand bis Februar 1945. Das Kernstück des Institutes bildeten zwei pneuma-tische Kammern, die zur Behandlung von Lungenerkran-kungen sowie für weitere allgemeine medizinische Frage-stellungen und Therapiekonzepte genutzt werden konnten; andererseits Verwendung fanden für arbeits-, sport- und höhenphysiologische Untersuchungen. Die Eppendorfer Institution beeinflusste unter ihren drei Leitern die deutsche Luftfahrtmedizin in maßgeblicher Weise, wobei neben höhenphysiologischen Aufgabenstellungen vor allem anwen-dungsbezogene Fragen untersucht und Fliegertauglichkeits-untersuchungen durchgeführt wurden.

Die Maschinen sind erwacht. Sie lernen kochen und musizieren, denken und debattieren. Manche Geräte übertreffen uns bereits: Sie stellen bessere Diagnosen als Ärzte, beherrschen 20 Sprachen oder erkennen technische Probleme, noch bevor ein Zug ausfällt. Wohin führt das in der Zukunft? Sind Roboter und smarte Computer ein Segen? Für den Umbau unserer Energiesysteme, für lebenswerte Städte und die alternde Gesellschaft? Oder eher eine Gefahr für Arbeitsplätze, Privatsphäre und Sicherheit? Ulrich Eberl hat weltweit in den führenden Labors recherchiert. Anschaulich schildert er die faszinierenden Entwicklungen auf dem Gebiet, das den Kern unseres Selbstverständnisses trifft: die menschliche Intelligenz.
