Introduction: Sedating effects of some medications used to treat allergic rhinitis (AR) symptoms can impair an individual’s ability to function optimally. The objective of this study was to characterize the effects of a single dose of loratadine/montelukast (L/M) versus placebo and diphenhydramine on daytime somnolence and psychomotor...

Context: Impaired vigilance and sleepiness are two major daily complaints of patients with narcolepsy. We previously showed their sleepiness to be correlated to an abnormally regulated skin temperature, i.e., increased distal skin temperature compared with proximal skin temperature. Objective: Our goal was to investigate a possible causal...

Introduction: Exposure to a hypoxic environment has a deleterious effect on physiological and mental functions. We studied the effect of added inspired CO2 during artificially induced hypoxic normobaric hypoxia (oxygen saturation ∼80%) on complex task performance. Methods: In random order, 22 healthy volunteers were exposed to 3 gas mixtures for...

Background: Because malaria in endemic areas presents a serious threat to the health of aircrew, optimal prevention is important. An effective and safe prophylactic antimalarial drug is needed. The combination of 250 mg atovaquone with 100 mg proguanil HCl (atovaquone/proguanil, or A/P) has shown good prophylactic efficacy and tolerance for...

Introduction: During sustained operations, a combined use of a hypnotic to induce sleep under difficult circumstances and a psychostimulant to improve performance and alertness during night-shift work or after sleep deprivation may be necessary. This study was conducted to evaluate the effect of modafinil and caffeine as countermeasures to...

Sustained vigilance is required by pilots and crew during flight; therefore, the use of antihistamines with sedating properties is widely prohibited. The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of desloratadine, a long-acting, nonsedating antihistamine, on healthy volunteers placed under conditions of simulated cabin pressure. Methods...

Automatic information processing (AVIP) in traffic refers to a driver state, in which expectations have replaced a large part of the active information intake exerted by a highly attentive driver. Instead of actively scanning the visual environment, the driver only passively monitors the outside world, requiring little attention. This state has...
