His evaluation of the fitness of these recruits for pilot training included medical histories, physical examinations, measurements of height, weight, and blood pressure. As well, and unique at the time was an ECG (electrocardiogram), even though its value was uncertain and it was not used as a requirement for recruitment. At the end of the war several thousand medical records including the ECG's were sent to Ottawa." With the permission of the RCAF, a research study was set up and between 1946-1948 3983 of the WWII recruits were chosen to participate in a long term study. They were divided into 5 groups and one group was examined each year. "The current status of the study can be summarized as of July 1999. 1908 members were still alive." Appendix I is a list of 39 peer reviewed publications from the study published from 1952-1998.
