The New Frontier: Man's Survival in the Sky outlines the cause, effects and possible cures for problems that involve flying. This book discusses the pressure of the atmosphere; incidence, cause, and prevention of decompression sickness; and altitude as a cause of anoxia. The failure of the pressure cabin, principles of protection from climatic stress, and conditioning of the aircraft cabin are also deliberated. This text likewise covers the measurement of the forces produced by flight, physiological mechanisms involved in positive “g” effects, and health and hygiene in air travel. This publication is intended for individuals interested in how man adapts to strange, new, and exciting environments.
