This excerpt has been provided in the absence of an abstract.

More than 400 million passengers will travel on U.S. airlines in 1988. The airplane has become a primary form of mass transportation. Accordingly, practicing physicians can expect to be approached increasingly by patients using air travel with questions about how various aspects of the flight environment might affect their medical conditions. The most applicable parts of this text in this respect are the initial sections on the atmosphere and the interrelated physiologic considerations. This book provides physicians with established facts on various gas laws, along with data on pulmonary oxygen tensions and arterial oxygen saturations in relation to altitude.
