Abstract : The AGARD Aerospace Medical Panel sponsored a Workshop on the Medical Surveillance of Subjects for Acceleration Research. There remain unanswered questions about the possible long-term medical complications of repetitive exposure to G forces. The concept underlying the Workshop was that subjects for acceleration research form a highly medically screened cohort in whom medical concerns about G exposure might be addressed by pooling data. Workshop participants from Canada, France, Germany, Japan, the Netherlands, Poland, Sweden, the UK, and the US Navy and USAF, presented the current procedures in place for the medical screening of acceleration subjects. The outcomes of the Workshop included a consensus protocol for medical screening of subjects for acceleration research, and a protocol for a database to track medical occurrences of NATO centrifuges.
