This guide makes an attempt to translate information on numerous parameters of man's potential in underwater and hyperbaric environments for these with no historical past within the lifestyles sciences. achieving any multifaceted job calls for group paintings, and potent workforce paintings is dependent upon facile verbal exchange between all contributors. to speak adequately, all events needs to comprehend every one other's difficulties and have the ability to converse an analogous language. To this finish we think that this e-book will cross some distance in furthering the certainty and communique important for max success. The U. S. army has a primary curiosity in every kind of actions attached with the sea and is mainly attracted to the turning out to be box of manned underwater and hyperbaric actions. hence, the manuscript for this accomplished ebook used to be constructed lower than place of work of Naval learn agreement N00014-67-A-0214-0013 with The George Washington collage. We recognize with appreciation the monetary help and technical advice for this project through the Naval scientific learn and strengthenĀ­ ment Command of the Bureau of medication and surgical procedure in addition to by means of the Engineering Psychology software and the body structure application of the place of work of Naval examine. JOSEPH P. POLLARD Director organic and scientific Sciences department workplace of Naval study vii Preface a necessity was once felt for a e-book that might rfile the connection of the man or woman to the underwater hyperbaric setting in this kind of means that the person unusual with the mental or biomedical jargon may perhaps nonetheless comprehend and take pleasure in the information.

4. Taste and Smell Foods and beverages, once taken into the mouth, make at least a dual, and usually a triple, appeal. The tissues of the mouth, throat, and nasal cavity are so innervated and so disposed in relation to one another that any or all three sensory systems (pressure, taste, and smell) can go into operation simultaneously in response to the same stimulus. The pressure sensibilities of the mouth region are brought into play and the sense of taste is obviously involved; however, the most elaborate experiences are furnished by olfaction or the sense of smell.

Even though they are an essential part of temperature control, the air ducts (or the respiratory system) are so important to underwater activity that the essential anatomy and physiology are treated separately in the following section of this chapter under the heading, gas exchange. Heat production is accomplished by metabolism (burning the fuel) in the cells of the body and, under normal conditions, is all that is needed. Man has developed clothing to help maintain body heat, and modern man has developed elaborate methods of both heating and cooling the environment so as to provide a comfortable temperature for the body.
