Changes in volume, muscle compartment, and compliance of the lower extremities in man following 30 days of exposure to simulated microgravity.
The purpose of these experiments was to test the hypothesis that reduced size of the leg muscle compartment following exposure to long-duration microgravity would be associated with increased legExpand

Perception of the medical risk of spaceflight.
We conducted an opinion survey to improve the characterization of medical risk during spaceflight, using a questionnaire designed to elicit space medicine experts' perceptions of the probability,Expand

Cardiovascular responses of women to lower body negative pressure.
Lower body negative pressure (LBNP) has provided a method for studying cardiovascular responses in men while simulating a return to the stresses of 1-G following space flight. In this study, we haveExpand

Hemodynamic and hormonal responses to lower body negative pressure in men with varying profiles of strength and aerobic power
AbstractHemodynamic, cardiac, and hormonal responses to lower-body negative pressure (LBNP) were examined in 24 healthy men to test the hypothesis that responsiveness of reflex control of bloodExpand

Aerobic fitness in women and responses to lower body negative pressure.
High aerobic fitness may be associated with impaired responsiveness to orthostatic challenge. This could be detrimental to astronauts returning from spaceflight. Thus, we examined the cardiovascularExpand

Responses to LBNP in men with varying profiles of strength and aerobic capacity: Implications for flight crews
Hemodynamic and hormonal responses to lower-body negative pressure (LBNP) were examined in 24 healthy men to test the hypothesis that responsiveness of reflex control of blood pressure duringExpand
