SPACE NURSING

Mrs.Usha Rani.

Abstract
Space nursing is the nursing speciality that studies how space travel impacts human response patterns. Similar to space medicine, the speciality also contributes
to knowledge about nursing care of earthbound patients. The challenge is to have man living and working in a permanently based space station. Nursing is on the
threshold of expanding the health care role to manís adaptation in outer space. Elements of manís physiologic and psychologic responses are involved in determining
the most productive use of man and machines in the space environment. Curricular considerations for a career in space nursing are being explored. The projection of
possibilities for practice of space nursing can produce effective contributions toward health care maintenance of the space station personnel. The challenge for nursing
is to become a collaborating team participant in the exploration of living and working in space.

Key words: SPACE NURSING, NURSING CARE IN SPACE, GRAVITY IN SPACE,
