Aviation Medical Examiner (AME)
Advanced Aerospace Medicine On-line
This on-line aerospace medicine reference was designed to provide a comprehensive information source
for use by Aviation Medical Examiners, Medical Officers of the Office of Aerospace Medicine, and
anyone else interested in the subject matter. The text provides a basic understanding of the
interaction between the human body and the aerospace environment. Some sections are
intuitively simple, while others are somewhat complex. This diversity of level is intentional and
reflects the wide range of concepts and issues associated with aviation and space travel.
The text is divided into three sections. To locate a specific topic click on the section, then the
