Alpha-adrenergic vascular responsiveness to sympathetic nerve activity is intact after head-down bed rest in humans.

Abstract

Space-flight and its ground-based simulation model, 6 degrees head-down bed rest (HDBR), cause cardiovascular deconditioning in humans. Because sympathetic vasoconstriction plays a very important role in circulation, we examined whether HDBR impairs alpha-adrenergic vascular responsiveness to sympathetic nerve activity. We subjected eight healthy volunteers… (More)
