  • IEEE EMB Acceleration Special

    Dear Biomch-L readers,

    The March 1991 issue of IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology contains a
    number of interesting items. In the first place, it is a `special' about
    High-G Environments (guest editor: Leonid Hrebien, Drexel University) with
    the following authors and titles:

    E.H. Wood, Prevention of pathophysiologic effects of acceleration in humans:
    fundamentals and historic perspectives

    Th.W. Moore & D. Jarov, Cardiovascular model for studying circulatory impair-
    ment under acceleration

    J.E. Whinnery, Theoretical analysis of acceleration-induced central nervous
    system ischemia

    W.B. Albery & R.E. van Patten, Non-invasive sensing systems for acceleration-
    induced physiologic changes

    J.P. Cammarota, Integrated systems for detecting and managing acceleration-
    induced loss of consciousness

    R.R. Burton, L.J. Meeker & J.H. Raddin Jr, Centrifuges for studying the effect
    of sustained acceleration on human physiology

    Ph.E. Whitley, Integrated protective systems for operational acceleration-
    induced loss of consciousness

    Furthermore, a more peaceful but equally relevant feature article is:

    J.H. Felder, Ethical issues in biomedical engineering: the Bjork-Shiley
    heart valve

    which provides an interesting story about the scientific, engineering, and
    legal-socio-economic problems when equipment designed to preserve lives tends
    to do the opposite.
