Abstract : At an aviation institute eosinophils, glycenmia in capillary blood and mucoproteins and uropeosin in the urine were investigated in 18 flying students, in dependence upon the first flying days on jet aircraft of type MIG-15 with the instructors. At times the values (mucoprotein and uropepsin) were also investigated on the teachers. During a flying day eosinopenia has been observed in all students, which becomes even more expressed after the flight. On the control day, after which the students were off for several days, the number of eosinophils in all the students came to normal values. Glycemia during the flight grew on the first day, on the 2nd and 3rd days was observed a drop. Mucoproteins in the urine grew considerably only in the teacher on the first flying day. In the student no considerable changes have been observed. (Author)
