The 12 papers and one film presented had a close bearing on the practical aeromedical requirements, e.g. in cardiorespiratory assessment, spectometry, anthropometric methods, biochemical analyses, X-ray examinations, and special visual investigation methods etc. There was a valuable exchange of knowledge and views on methods, results, and approaches adopted by the various national aeromedical centers.
