Commercial Aviation: “Exposure to NOISE aboard aircrafts “

Mi茅rcoles, 19 de diciembre de 2018 Twitter Sin comentarios

Airline pilots and flight attendants, working in the cockpit and cabin, are exposed to noise from aircraft engines, high-speed airflow, and other sources. Exposure to elevated noise levels can cause permanent changes in hearing, diminished ability to communicate, and fatigue. GAO ( US Goverment Accountability Office)聽 was asked to provide information on noise levels experienced by crewmembers working in commercial service aircraft and their access to hearing protection. This report examines: (1) what is known about aircraft cabin and cockpit noise levels compared with occupational noise exposure standards and (2) selected airlines鈥 policies on hearing protection for crewmembers.聽 GAO reviewed OSHA鈥檚 occupational noise exposure standard, NIOSH鈥檚 recommended occupational noise exposure limit, and regulations and guidance from FAA, as well as other sources.

Desorientaci贸n Espacial: ” Justo lo B谩sico”

Jueves, 13 de diciembre de 2018 JBACARIZA Sin comentarios

Como se dice en este art铆culo publicado en el portal de Hispaviaci贸n, “la incidencia de desorientaci贸n espacial en la aviaci贸n comercial es la tercera causa por su relevancia en los accidentes inevitables”, por lo que se debe tomar muy en consideraci贸n el conocimiento de las Ilusiones Visuales y Vestibulares que pueden afectar a los aviadores . “El uso de entrenadores como la silla de Barany, el Vert铆fugo y el Vertig贸n, o aquellos que permiten la estimulaci贸n en los tres planos del espacio como el Gyrolab, ser谩n indispensables en la prevenci贸n de la desorientaci贸n espacial”

De esta manera completamos el v铆deo de la FAA publicado en un post anterior

How often do plane stowaways fall from the sky?

Lunes, 17 de septiembre de 2012 Twitter Sin comentarios

Police are investigating whether a man found dead on a west London street was a 聽stowaway who fell from a plane. No-one saw the body fall from the sky on to Portman Avenue. It is not the first incident of this kind on the Heathrow flightpath.聽 Dr Stephen Veronneau, of the US Federal Aviation Administration, has identified 96 individuals around the world who have tried to travel in plane wheel wells since 1947. The incidents happened on 85 flights. Veronneau is working on the assumption that the Mortlake fatality was a stowaway. Of these, more than three-quarters have proved fatal.

This article answers following questions : Just how often does this happen and what are the riks?

Mi茅rcoles, 5 de septiembre de 2012 Pedro Ortiz Garc铆a Sin comentarios

The leading cause of death in the United States is coronary heart disease (CHD). In 2004, 聽the US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommended against electrocardiogram聽 (ECG) in asymptomatic adults.聽Besides, ECG is not recommended as part of periodic health examinations, according to the American Academy of Family Physicians. This report from the USPSTF updates the 2004 recommendations on ECG screening for asymptomatic adults at low, intermediate, or high risk for CHD events.

International travel “makes athletes ill”

Jueves, 9 de agosto de 2012 Twitter Sin comentarios

The study – published聽in “British Journal of Sports Medicine” -聽tracked the daily health of 259 elite rugby players competing in the 2010 Super 14 Rugby Tournament. Over 16 weeks, teams from Australia, South Africa and New Zealand played in all three countries. For matches played outside home turf after international travel, illness incidence was higher.聽聽Infections accounted for most of the reported illnesses. They suggest that various stressors could be involved, including changes in pollution, temperature, allergens, humidity, altitude, as well as different food, germs, and culture. It is suggested聽 that increased illness from travel is more likely to be due to the fact that the person is out of their normal environment instead of flying.

One of the authors, Prof Schwellnus said: “These findings could be relevant to the Olympics and might contribute to a home advantage.” Will there be this, one of the reasons because home atheletes win more medals at Olympics?聽 Tell us what you think..

Air France 447 and “The automation Paradox”

Viernes, 13 de julio de 2012 FSI / Curt Lewis Sin comentarios

A deadly combination of pilot confusion, “warning system ergonomics” design and 聽inadequate pilot training were responsible for the crash of Air France Flight 447 on 1 June 2009.聽This is the conclusion reached by the BEA (Bureau d’Enqu锚tes et d’Analyses pour la s茅curit茅 de l’aviation civile), the French authority responsible for carrying out safety investigations relating to accidents or serious incidents in civil aviation, in its final report into the crash. BEA’s 224-page report indicated that the aircraft might have been flown out of danger if the pilots had realized the situation they were facing.

And what this has to do with Automation Paradox?聽 ….
