According to results of performed examinations scoliotic spinal deformity in flight personnel has a low impact on professional health. This is proved by: oligosymptomatic course of disease - lack of complaints of pain, moderate pain, which is revealed only in case of loading tests and palpation; preservation of supporting and movement spinal function; lack… (More)
Three groups of criteria can be used to describe ultimate tolerance of the "side-to-side" impact loads by test-subject as a pre-shock or pre-traumatic margin of relatively safe exposure. These groups include subjective signs, regulatory (bradycardia, extrasystole, brief respiratory disturbances) and spinal biomechanics deviations. Physiological experiments… (More)
The article discusses the peculiarities of spinal fractures in catapulted pilots: mechanism of fracture--indirect axial load in combination with front or front-lateral bending; morphological picture--wedge-shaped compression fracture of vertebral body; type of fracture--stable; clinic peculiarities--scanty clinic picture as a rule; localization--mid-thorax… (More)
Outcomes of 36 accidents with 37 aircrafts (one mid-air collision) in the period of 2003-2010 have been analyzed. Of 71 ejected crew members 14 pilots died (19.7%), 26 pilots (36.6%) suffered injuries of varying severity and 31 pilots (43.7%) escaped noticeable injuries. The major causes of the deaths were late emergency escape and failure of the eject… (More)
The localization, causes and severity of 214 "ejection-associated" injuries occurred in 160 pilots are discussed. Spine, upper and lower extremities are affected most frequently. The severe injures prevail (57.8%). The main causes of severe injuries are the impact + Gz accelerations of ejection and the impact + Gz accelerations of landing.
The biomechanical characteristics of the middle ear of a live man and a corpse (autopsy material) were compared. The conditions were found that provide the adequacy of biomechanical reactions of both objects to changes in the external air pressure.
The purpose of this work was to evaluate early and delayed effects of static mechanical loading of the spine on human tolerance to the ejection g-loads. Experiments with spine segments showed that static pre-loading equivalent to aerobatic accelerations of 8-10 units leads to relative strengthening of vertebra with low tolerance of the longitudinal shock… (More)
Based on the analysis of available literature, a quantitative estimation of the role of chronic exposure to large aerobatic g-loads on modern aircraft in the risk of degenerative/dystrophic shifts in the spinal lumbar zone of flying personnel was attempted. In the opinion of the author, these g-loads increase the probability of spinal osteochondrosis in 1.5… (More)
The paper considers existing approaches to the classification of outcomes of emergency egress the aircraft. The existing classification of time-related manifestations of the outcome of the bailout supplemented with clause immediate consequences bailout. The analysis of the effects of aircraft emergency escape for the pilot's health, special attention is… (More)
