OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to track the course of cerebral tissue oxygen saturation (rSO2) and pilot performance during an episode of gravity-induced loss of consciousness (GLOC). BACKGROUND GLOC, a major problem facing pilots of high-performance aircraft, is brought about by a sudden reduction in rSO2 as a result of increased +Gz force. It(More)
OBJECTIVES We examine the time course of performance recovery from gravity-induced loss of consciousness (GLOC) and evaluate the utility of exposing participants to repeated bouts of GLOC in promoting recovery time. BACKGROUND A substantial number of accidents among fighter pilots have resulted from episodes of GLOC. U.S. Air Force doctrine holds that(More)
