Paper Abstract

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration(NASA) has assumed responsibility not only for America's Space Program, but also for insuring that the technological advances resulting from space exploration are fully utilized for the public's benefit. In order to provide an effective mechanism for transferring aerospace technology to the biomedical field, four Biomedical Application Teams (BATeams) have been established by NASA. Their purpose is to identify, validate, and disseminate aerospace technology which could have significant impact on biomedical research and clinical medical practice. Each BATeam has programs focusing on specific medical problem areas. The team at Stanford operates both through the division of Cardiology and the NASA-Ames Research Center in nearby Mountain View. This team of physicians and engineers emphasizes NASA-developed techniques and instruments which have direct application to the diagnosis and treatment of cardiac diseases.
