14 Exploration Life Support

 

HRP [Human Research Program] requirements are derived from the Exploration Architecture Requirements Document-Section TBD, ESMD Implementation Plan-Page 18, (NP-2006-11-448-HQ), NASA Space Flight Human Systems Standards [SFHSS], Vol. I: Crew Health (SFHSS Vol. 1) and NASA Space Flight Human Systems Standards, Vol. II: Habitability and Environmental Health(SFHSS Vol. 2) (1,2)

15 Advanced Environmental Monitoring and Control

 

HRP requirements are derived from the Exploration Architecture Requirements Document-Section TBD, ESMD Implementation Plan-Page 18, (NP-2006-11-448- HQ), NASA Space Flight Human Systems Standards, Vol. I: Crew Health (SFHSS Vol. 1) and NASA Space Flight Human Systems Standards, Vol. II: Habitability and Environmental Health (SFHSS Vol. 2)

17 Extravehicular Activity Technologies

Risk #26: Mismatch Between Crew Cognitive Capabilities and Task Demands

HHC Risk of Compromised EVA [Extravehicular Activity] Performance and crew Health Due to Inadequate EVA Suit Systems: Improperly designed EVA suits can result in the inability of the crew to perform as expected, and can cause mechanical and decompression injury. Suit developers must fully understand the impact of the suit design on crew performance and health to ensure properly designed mobility, pressures, nutrition, life support, etc. (1,2)

Risk #1: Accelerated Bone Loss and Fracture Risk

Risk of Adverse Health Affects from Lunar Dust Exposure: It is clear that prolonged exposure to rock dust is harmful, but it is not clear if exposure to regolith dust is more or less harmful than terrestrial rock dust. Research into this area may determine if exposure limits need to be changed, and/or if additional medical treatment capability is required.

Risk #2: Impaired Fracture Healing

Risk #3: Injury to Joints and Intervertebral Structures

Risk #6: Diminished Cardiac and Vascular Function

Risk #11: Reduced Muscle Mass, Strength, and Endurance

Risk #12: Increased Susceptibility to Muscle Damage

Risk #30: Chronic and Degenerative Tissue Risks (due to Radiation Exposure)

Risk #31: Acute Radiation Risks

Risk #37: Provide Space Suits and Portable Life Support Systems
