Abstract : Results are summarized from two investigations on changes of cardiac electropotentials for flight personnel following flights which caused profound nervous-emotional tensions and on methods for the early exposure of pathology of the cardiovascular system. Results of hemodynamic studies are presented for the latter case. Conclusions are: (1) Psycho-emotional tension, connected with flight activity, causes a specific change in the functional condition of the cardiac muscle; (2) Recording of the EKG along with other methods, can be a test which helps the flight surgeon to correctly appraise psycho-emotional tension in connection with flight activity.
