Mi茅rcoles, 30 de enero de 2019 admin Sin comentarios

El art铆culo que hoy os recomendamos fue publicado en “Open Access Emergency Medicine” en Feb/2017. Se trata de un estudio basado en un cuestionario on line remitido a los m茅dicos de la Sociedad Alemana de Medicina Aeroespacial Alemana (DGLRM), que tiene como objetivo conocer las causas m谩s frecuentes de emergencias m茅dicas en vuelos comerciales, as铆 como el equipo utilizado en las mismas. Respondieron 121 m茅dicos , que al menos participaron en una emergencia. Los trastornos cardio-vasculares (40%) y los neurol贸gicos (17.8%) fueron los m谩s frecuentes. El equipamiento m茅dico de abordo se consider贸 suficiente en casi el 80% de las emergencias. El vuelo tuvo que ser desviado a causa de la emergencia m茅dica en el 10.6% de los casos. Documentaron 1 emergencia cada 63 vuelos (por encima de los publicado anteriormente). Los autores recomiendan un registro internacional de emergencias m茅dicas聽 en vuelos comerciales.

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.
