ASEM Is Changing Its Name

Starting in January 2015, Aviation, Space, and Environmental Medicine will become Aerospace Medicine and Human Performance.
We'll have a new cover and a whole new look to go with our new name. This change is meant to align the title of the journal more closely with the research and articles we publish. The cover image to the left can be clicked on for a larger view.












Abstract submission site now open!

The abstract submission site is now open. This is a different site from last year, so you will need to create an account. The deadline for submitting abstracts is October 31, 2014. Please contact Pam Day or Rachel Trigg with any questions.


Guidance on Air Medical Transport for Patients with Ebola Virus Disease

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) published the "Guidance on Air Medical Transport for Patients with Ebola Virus Disease."  This guidance is intended to assist air medical transport (AMT) service providers in using specialized and/or specially equipped aircraft to transport patients with Ebola virus disease (EVD) while maximizing the safety of patients and transport personnel. This guidance does not apply to commercial passenger aircraft. 


Aeromedical Lessons Learned from Columbia Shuttle Mishap

Reflecting current efforts and understanding, Loss of Signal aims to present the story of Columbia from an aerospace medical angle, focusing holistically on what is important for future investigations and analysis of spacecraft mishaps. This book is written by those who participated in the crew recovery and analysis and is written from their first-hand perspective of the events. The loss of a human crew implies sensitivities that must be balanced against the public and industry need to know, with the guiding principle being prevention of further mishaps and enhanced protection for crewmembers.
