The European Society of Aerospace Medicine was founded in 2006 as an umbrella organisation in the field of Aerospace Medicine. As a pan-European, independent forum, it works to promote the safety and health of all persons involved in aviation and space operations , and to coordinate European aerospace medical interests across all national and organisational boundaries.
We aim to assist the various responsible bodies in the development and harmonisation of educational activities in aerospace medicine throughout Europe, and to develop continuous information flows and dialogue between the National Aeromedical Associations, and encourage the exchange of scientific results and experience. We strive to reach a consensus which can then contribute to the scientific evidence base which should be the foundation of aeromedical decision making.
As a result of the COVID-19 global pandemic, the ICAM 2020 Organizing Committee, with representatives from the Aerospace Medical Association (AsMA), the International Academy of Aviation and Space Medicine (IAASM), the European Society of Aerospace Medicine (ESAM), and the Francophone Society of Aerospace Medicine (SoFRAMAS), decided to postpone the 1st International Conference in Aerospace Medicine (1st ICAM). The new dates for the 1st ICAM is now September 22-24, 2022. ICAM 2022 will be conducted at the Centre des Congrès de La Villette in Paris, France.
We are disappointed this first joint meeting of the world's most prominent Aerospace Medicine associations must be postponed, but the health and safety of our Aerospace Medicine colleagues from around the world is our primary concern.
We hope you and your loved ones are all safe, secure, and healthy during this pandemic period. We very much look forward to seeing many of you very soon.Read more
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) during spaceflight - a guideline for CPR in microgravity from the German Society of Aerospace Medicine (DGLRM) and the European Society of Aerospace Medicine Space Medicine Group (ESAM-SMG)
Background: With the “Artemis”-mission mankind will return to the Moon by 2024. Prolonged periods in space will not only present physical and psychological challenges to the astronauts, but also pose risks concerning the medical treatment capabilities of the crew. So far, no guideline exists for the treatment of severe medical emergencies in microgravity. We, as a international group of researchers related to the field of aerospace medicine and critical care, took on the challenge and developed a an evidence-based guideline for the arguably most severe medical emergency – cardiac arrest.Read more
This was a lively and fruitful meeting, with discussions mainly centred at improving the communication with our member associations/societies and a...
We work together across Europe to promote the health, performance and safety of people who fly through the use of evidence science and consensus.
