Supplying a pharmacy for NASA Exploration SpaceFlight

Lunes, 24 de junio de 2019 María Josep Martí Utset Sin comentarios

In order to maintain crew health and performance during long-duration spaceflight outside of low-Earth orbit, NASA and its international partners must be capable of providing a safe and effectivepharmacy. Given few directed studies of pharmaceuticals in the space environment, it is difficult to characterize pharmaceutical effectiveness or stability during spaceflight; this in turn makes it challenging to select an appropriate formulary for exploration. Here, we present the current state of literature regarding pharmaceutical stability, metabolism, and effectiveness during spaceflight. In particular, we have attempted to highlight the gaps in current knowledge and the difficulties in translating terrestrial-based drug studies to a meaningful interpretation of drug stability, safety, and effectiveness in space. We hope to identify high-yield opportunities for future research that might better define and mitigate pharmaceutical risk for exploration missions

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that efforts to reduce the spread of influenza virus on commercial aircraft focus on encouraging airline employees and passengers to:

  • Get vaccinated
  • Postpone  travel  when sick
  • Take everyday steps to protect themselves and others while traveling

This document contains information to help limit the spread of influenza virus during air travel and also provides guidance for the management of travelers with influenza-like illness (ILI) during a flight. It updates the 2009-10 influenza season guidance for commercial aircraft.

La silla que “entrena” astronautas

Viernes, 11 de junio de 2010 María Josep Martí Utset Sin comentarios

Una exposición prolongada del cuerpo humano a entornos sin gravedad provoca  atrofia en la masa muscular porque las extremidades corporales pierden movilidad ante la falta de esfuerzo. La empresa vasca NTE-Sener ha ideado una silla, diseñada con tecnología de última generación aeronáutica, que permiten mejorar los ejercicios que contrarrestan la enfermedad muscular, aplicando estímulos en las articulaciones del cuerpo…
