Human centrifuge non-invasive measurements of arterial pressure at eye level during Gz acceleration.

Abstract

An apparatus for successful repetitive, indirect photokymographic recordings of systolic blood pressure (Ps) on a human centrifuge during World War II is described. Proportionately to 1 Gz hydrostatic heart-to-head Ps differences, eye level Ps decreased approximately 30 mm Hg per delta G, during 15 s Gz exposures of three relaxed volunteers, a finding… (More)
