Abstract : The incidence of past and present ear, nose, and throat diseases derived from comprehensive evaluation of 400 space and test pilot candidates is reported. Comparisons are made between several items of past medical history, findings from physical examinations, and results of specialized examinations. The data presented provide useful information in the medical selection of space pilot candidates and an opportunity to study the results of longitudinal aeromedical screening. Additionally, the possible relationship between asymptomatic ear, nose and throat diseases in flying personnel and such factors as age, flying time, history, and results from examinations is discussed.
