Six Swedish Air Force pilots and two Armstrong Laboratory subjects volunteered for this study to determine whether reduced pressure in extended coverage anti-G trousers (ECT), in combination with positive pressure breathing for G protection, affected +Gz tolerance. Group mean gradual onset run (GOR) time for the low pressure schedule (0.8 psig.G-1) was significantly different from the other two conditions (1.1, 1.5 psig.G-1)--84.1, 95.6, and 94.1 s, respectively. Group mean simulated aerial… CONTINUE READING
