History of aviation medicine

In the history of aviation, the history of aviation medicine began largely after World War I, when aircraft needed to fly to higher altitudes, and had enclosed canopies. In the jet era, aircraft became pressurised so rapid decompression became a hazard leading to passing out; had high g-forces which lead to G-LOC; and ejection seats caused impedance to pilots' health. Much of the adverse health effects in aviation are caused by rapid changes in atmospheric pressure, such as causing decompression sickness.
