There is evidence on body fluid volume effects of head-down tilt bed rest and altered oral sodium supply, but the combined impact of both has not been investigated in detail. We therefore studied circulatory adaptation to 8 days -6 degrees head down bed rest (HDBR) with different levels (-140 to -430 mM/d) of oral sodium load (SL). We expected decreased(More)
This investigation was conducted to test the following hypotheses: 1) If simulated orthostasis (LBNP) reduces plasma cGMP; 2) if simulated microgravity alters any such LBNP-induced effect; and 3) if simulated microgravity reduces resting plasma cGMP levels. In addition, we studied the time-course of thoracic impedance during, LBNP and asked if there is(More)
INTRODUCTION Intracorporal knot tying (ICKT) and suturing in minimal invasive surgery (MIS) represent a key skill for advanced procedures such as Nissen fundoplication. Suture placement under tension is particularly challenging during MIS. The aim of this study was to compare ICKT of the common surgical square knot and the slipping knot on a simulated(More)
Experiment INTERSTITIUM was performed on days 3, 170, 287, and 430 of the long-term MIR mission of the Russian cosmonaut-physician in order to evaluate reactivity of the system of hormonal regulation of homeostasis during LBNP sessions. Data of the experiment displayed different types of reaction of the volume controls to LBNP at the onset (F-3), in the(More)
This study was undertaken to identify combinations ('neutral points', NP) of orthostatic (tilt: head-down = HDT, head-up = HUT) and pseudo-orthostatic (lower body pressure: positive = LBPP, negative = LBNP) stimuli able to compensate one another in their effect on hemodynamic variables, electrical thoracic impedance (TI), hematocrit and plasma mass density(More)
