Aerospace Medicine


Although a pilot may become afflicted with an infirmity, this need not necessarily terminate his or her ability to fly. The essential question then becomes: Can the aviator afflicted with a disease continue to fly without jeopardizing health and compromising flying safety?

The 5th edition of Clinical Aviation Medicine was released in May of 2013 and the series has been renamed Rayman's Clinical Aviation Medicine to reflect the lifetime achievement of Editor and Lead Author Russell B. Rayman, MD, MPH, DAvMed, Colonel (Ret) USAF. Dr. Rayman and seven expert flight surgeons and aeromedical physicians have produced a one-of-a-kind, invaluable daily resource.

New to the 5th edition:

  • • All chapters have been updated, including references.
  • • The sections on coronary artery disease, valvular disease, pulmonary disease, ophthalmology, and psychiatry were entirely rewritten.
  • • A new chapter (not in previous editions) was written on aviation dentistry.
  • • Many new disease entities were added such as Brugada Syndrome, hemochromatosis, celiac disease, thrombocythemia, and more.
