Abstract : The data are sufficiently extensive to justify a conclusive procedure for selection to predict susceptibility to aeroembolism (bends) in subsequent low pressure tank examinations. The following procedure is recommended: (1) All men to be subjected to 35,000 and 40,000 for a total run of one hour. (2) All men failing first test are required to take a second test. (3) All men passing either test are recommended for high altitude flying. It is further recommended that validation study involving actual high altitude flying be initiated. (Author)
