The cardiovascular response to changes in posture has been the focus of numerous investigations in the past. Yet despite considerable, targeted experimental effort, the mechanisms underlying orthostatic intolerance (OI) following spaceflight remain elusive. The number of hypotheses still under consideration and the lack of a single unifying theory of the(More)
Circulatory adaptations resulting in postflight orthostasis have frequently been observed in response to space travel. It has been postulated that a decrement in left ventricular mass (LVM) found after microgravity exposure may be the central component in this cardiovascular deconditioning. However, a physiologic mechanism responsible for these changes in(More)
