Course Objective It is intended that the students obtain general and specific information concerning the aviation physiology, space physiology, deep-sea diving physiology, effects of low oxygen pressure on the body, effects of acceleratory forces on the body in aviation and space physiology, “artificial climate” in the sealed spacecraft, weightlessness in space, effect of high partial pressures of individual gases on the body, scuba (self-contained underwater breathing apparatus) diving, special physiologic problems in submarines, hyperbaric oxygen therapy
Course Content In this course, the aviation physiology, space physiology, deep-sea diving physiology, effects of low oxygen pressure on the body, effects of acceleratory forces on the body in aviation and space physiology, “artificial climate” in the sealed spacecraft, weightlessness in space, effect of high partial pressures of individual gases on the body, scuba (self-contained underwater breathing apparatus) diving, special physiologic problems in submarines, hyperbaric oxygen therapy will be discussed.
