Assessment of efficiency in using telemedical
technologies for getting information from ISS RS
crews for medical support of human space flights and
information support of life science flight studies.
Conduct of several experimental sessions onboard
ISS RS for filming Russian cosmonautsí dermal integument
and mucous membrane.
Project implementation will enable to enhance
an efficiency in medical monitoring of human space
flights, add to practice of medical support advanced
methods and technologies for transmission of real-time
information and standardize information support of life
science studies onboard the ISS RS.
The following examinations are carried out during
the experimental session:
- study of small skin sites;
- otorhinolaryngologic examinations (examination of
external acoustic meatus, tympanic membranes, examination
of nasal passages);
- stomatologic examination of gums and teeth.
Video data is recorder on hard disk of computer RSE-Med
and copied to PCMCIA memory card, which will be returned to
the ground upon completion of the Expedition.
