Venous distensibility of the lower limbs was assessed in six healthy men who were submitted twice successively to 1 month of −6° head-down bedrest, with and without lower body negative pressure (LBNP) (LBNP subjects and control subjects, respectively). Venous capacity (Δ V v,max, in ml·100 ml−1) of the legs was determined by mercury strain gauge… CONTINUE READING
