COUBTER NEWS THtJRSOAT, MAT 14,1955 Air Force Doctors Risked Lives To Test New Pilots Gravity Suits By RENN1E TAYLOR AP Science Heportcr ' LOS ANGELES (AP) — A daring experiment on the hearts of five young Air Force doctors has opened the way for development of a new, more comfortable kind of gravity suit to prevent pilot blackouts. The tests, conducted by Capt. Owen L. Slaughter, now of Evansvillc, Ind., were reported lo the closing meeting of the Aero Medical Association here yesterday. Two long, flexible tubes called suits worked by preventing the the "pressure points" to stop hem- catheters were inserted through blood from crowding Into the lower blood vessels In the neck and into part of the body during high-speed turns, leaving none in the head and the heart of each physician under test. This was done to measure the exact blood pressure in the heart while the lower halves of their bodies were being compressed as in a gravity or blackout suit. Catheters are used frequently on one side or the other of the heart but never before have they been used simultaneously on both sides, Dr. Slaughter said. The one-sided operation is only slightly dangerous but Uie hazard is Increased many fold when both sides iire catheterized. However, no bad effects appeared, Dr. Slaughter reported. Flight surgeons long had be- lived that tight-suqeezing gravity little or causing momentary unconsciousness. Increase Resistance The tests showed, Dr. Slaughter said, that the gravity suit does not work that way. Instead it causes the arteries in the legs and lou'cr abdomen to increase their resistance to blood flow. Tills causes increased blood pressure In the upper part of the body and makes it easier for the heart to blood to the brain, he re- 301'ted. As a result, Dr. Slaughter said ic would suggest that gravity suits je redesigned specifically with the dea of compressing arteries in the owcr part of the Uody, as a first aid worker might do In holding orrlmtfe. It should not be necessary to make suits that will compress the flesh, he said. Dr. Slaughter recently completed his tour of Mr Force duty and returned to private practice.
