A new approach to the study of peripheral vascular hemodynamics in microgravity was initiated by designing an alternative methodology: air plethysmography (AP). This is the only technique that enables the quantification of vascular hemodynamics from gross measurements performed on the limbs. This paper reports a description of the device and of the measurement protocol. A comparative study showed that AP yields results that are well correlated, although not in agreement, with those obtained by… CONTINUE READING
