Incidence of adverse reactions from 23,000 exposures to simulated terrestrial altitudes up to 8900 m.


INTRODUCTION Adverse reactions during hypobaric chamber operations result from changes in barometric pressure per se and to the related reductions in the partial pressure of inspired oxygen. Previous studies have indicated that an adverse reaction may occur in approximately 6% of exposures in chambers used for flight training. The purpose of this study was… (More)
