Abstract : The present work deals with the problems of space medicine and contains some material relevant to the preservation of human health during space flight. An attempt is made to bring to a system the results of experimental investigations obtained during space flight. Detailed cardiological methods of space research including those based on mathematical and statistical data are stated. Some material obtained in the clinic with the help of space cardiology and the resultant data of clinicophysiological analysis taken in space flight are also presented. Cardiological theories are considered in connection with all the human reactions to space flight factors. (Author)
