The cardiopulmonary baroreflex response was studied before and after 24 h bed rest with head-down tilt (-5 degrees) in six normal male subjects, through lower body negative pressure (-5, -10, -15 mmHg) and passive leg raising. The reflex response was assessed (using plethysmography) by changes in forearm vascular resistance. During the lower body negative… CONTINUE READING
