The "push-pull" effect denotes the reduced tolerance to +G(z) (hypergravity) when +G(z) stress is preceded by exposure to hypogravity, i.e., fractional, zero, or negative G(z). The purpose of this study was to test the hypothesis that an exaggerated, myogenically mediated rise in leg vascular conductance contributes to the push-pull effect, using heart level arterial blood pressure as a measure of G tolerance. The approach was to impose control (30 s of 30 degrees head-up tilt) and push-pull… CONTINUE READING
