Off the planet : surviving five perilous months aboard the space station Mir by Jerry M Linenger( Book )
5 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"An unvarnished account of his near-disastrous stay, in 1997, on Russia's creaky space station... an engrossing report that NASA's publicity machine will bemoan." Booklist "[Linenger's] frank, personable prose shows readers what it's like to be an astronaut -or at least to be this particular astronaut, trying, along with his Russian companions, to live and work with good humor on an 11-year-old, half-broken, famously flammable space station as its air fills with antifreeze that is leaking out of shoddy cooling lines." Publishers Weekly "NASA astronaut Linenger spent five months aboard the Russian space station Mir, a spacecraft operating far beyond its design life. His personal account vividly captures the challenges and privation he endured both before and during his flight." Library Journal

Letters from mir an astronaut's letters to his son by Jerry M Linenger( Book )
4 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Annotation Inspiring letters of an embattled astronaut in space to his young son on Earth.In January 1997, astronaut Dr. Jerry Linenger embarked on a "routine" five-month mission to the Russian space station "Mir, leaving behind his pregnant wife and 14-month-old son, and the everyday pleasures of planet Earth. Before he left, he promised to write. Though his mission did not go as planned, he kept his word.Linenger's 132 days aboard the decaying space station were beset by near-fatal glitches that at times left the crew in total darkness, tumbling out of control. Most terrifying was a raging fire that nearly destroyed the station and all on board. It was with this last event, when, with the crew cut off from the world below and locked in a battle for survival, Linenger's letters to his son changed from a routine chronicle of daily events to the heart-felt, deeply moving story shared here.At the end of each difficult day, Jerry Linenger would fly over to his ceiling-mounted laptop and write to his boy, expressing the thoughts and feelings that any father has for his child--but that too many fail to communicate. In extreme isolation and constant danger, knowing he might never see his family again, Linenger was able to "speak from the heart," sharing meditations on life and destiny, adventure and courage, love and family; and passing on wryly playful pearls of wisdom, from "Never get on a teeter-totter with someone bigger than you" to "Don't give a kiss on impulse."An inspirational and charming book, "Letters from Mir is at once a chronicle of time spent in space and a touching example of how one man's experience off the planet brought him closer to the son he loves."Dear John, "I decided before this flight that I was going to be a good father and write to you every day....I realize that you are only one year old, and although I exaggerate your talents like any proud father would, I don't think that y

Physical Fitness Gains Following Simple Environmental Change ( Book )
1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Inactivity is the risk factor with potentially the greatest public health impact according to the 1989 U.S. Preventive Services Task Force report. This study reports changes in the physical fitness level following simple changes aimed at enabling community members to more easily adapt active life-styles. Simple environmental and social alterations were made at a San Diego Naval Air Station. A cohort of active-duty personnel from within this community (n=1,609) was administered both a physical readiness test (PRT) and a lifestyle questionnaire at baseline and at one year. The PRT consisted of a 1.5-mile timed run, sit-ups, push ups, and percent body fat components while the questionnaire addressed demographs, current exercise behavior, and attitudes towards exercise. Keywords: Physical fitness, Prevention, Environmental change, Inactivity, Exercise (physiology), Lifestyle. (JG)
An Assessment of Pre- and Post-Fitness Measures in Two Remedial Conditioning Programs ( Book )
1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Because of the severe sanctions that can be levied against personnel failing the PRT and body fat standards, it is important to assess the effectiveness of a Basic Exercise Program based program in reducing body fat and improving PRT performance among Navy personnel. The purpose of this study was to determine if taking part in a command-organized remedial program based on the BEP is effective in reducing body fat, improving failure-specific performance on the various components of the PRT, and improving overall physical fitness level. Remedial physical conditioning programs at a submarine base and an air station were evaluated. Pre- and postprogram PRT results were collected for participants at the submarine base (n=64) and the air station (n=44) to assess changes in the number of curl-ups, number of push-ups, run/walk time, overall classification score, percent body fat, and percent passing the overall PRT. In general, comparisons over time showed a trend toward improvement among participants in their performance on PRT fitness components and overall classification score

Epidemiology of Podiatric Injuries in U.S. Marine Recruits Undergoing Basic Training ( )
1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This study determined the incidence of podiatric injuries that occurred during 233,946 recruit days at risk (RDAR) among U.S. Marine Corps recruits undergoing basic training at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot (MCRD), San Diego, California, between 5 February and 25 April, 1990. ICD-9 codes of the initial injuries were identified to determine incidence rates, and recruit-days at risk were calculated from MCRD weekly population counts. Training-related initial injuries to the foot occurred at a rate of 3.0 new injuries per 1,000 recruit-days. The highest specific rates of injury occurred with stress fractures to the foot (0.56/1000 recruit-days), ankle sprains (0.53/1000 recruit days), and Achilles tendonitis (0.39/1000 recruit-days)
Musculoskeletal and Medical Morbidity Associated with Rigorous Physical Training ( )
1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The distribution and rates of medical conditions and musculoskeletal injuries suffered during training by U.S. Navy SEAL Special Forces trainees were described in a prospective, descriptive epidemiological study. We studied consecutive classes of candidates undergoing the physically-demanding 25-week Navy Special Warfare indoctrination training during Spring 1991 in Coronado, CA. Healthy males, ages 19 to 31, contributed 482 trainee-months at risk. Combined medical conditions and musculoskeletal injuries occurred at a rate of 61.4 cases per 100 trainee-months at risk. Visits were nearly evenly split between medical conditions (31.7 cases/100 trainee-months) and musculoskeletal injuries (29.7 cases/100 trainee-months). Respiratory complaints accounted for almost half (14. 7 cases/100 trainee-months) of the medical conditions, while overuse injuries (primarily iliotibial band syndrome, patellofemoral syndrome, and stress fracture) accounted for 90% of the musculoskeletal injuries. physical fitness, Injury, Epidemiology, Military, U.S. Navy, SEALS, Overuse injury, Physical training, Respiratory
Combat Surgery: Medical Decision Trees for Treatment of Naval Combat Casualties ( )
1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This book is intended to aid those involved in the treatment of severe trauma suffered during combat. It is especially intended to provide a quick reference to neurosurgeons, thoracic surgeons, and general surgeons with trauma surgery experience involved in treating combat casualties. We believe it would also be useful to the same individuals when working in more mundane settings such as trauma centers and inner city emergency room settings. It can also be used as a teaching guide for residents training in these fields
