One of the newest specialties in medicine is that known as Aviation Medicine. It is a little different from other specialties in that it, to a large extent, comprises portions of other specialties all applied to aeronautics. It includes a certain amount of ophthalmology, otology, internal medicine, neuropsychiatry, psychology and a large amount of physiology. The whole purpose of the subject is largely preventive in nature. It involves the selection and care of the pilot and his protection against the physical forces acting upon him in the air, all with a view to preventing accidents from a physical cause.
