From the early days of ballooning in 1803 scientists were investigating anoxia and altitude sickness. Over a century ago, Paul Bert, the father of aviation medicine, conducted experiments on the effects of oxygen deficiency and laid down the guidelines for the use of oxygen at high altitudes. The invention of the aeroplane brought further medical problems. This book discusses the research which has led to the development of modern aviation medicine, equipment and techniques.
