Task Cardiovascular Imaging and Strategies to Mitigate the Risk for Cardiac Events in Astronauts During Prolonged Spaceflight (Cardiac Risk-Imaging -- Levine, Completed) (Completed)
Last Published:  07/29/22 01:33:24 PM (Central)
Short Title: Cardiac Risk - Imaging
Responsible HRP Element: Human Health Countermeasures
Collaborating Org(s):
National Space Biomedical Research Institute (NSBRI)
Funding Status: Completed - Task completed and produced a deliverable
Procurement Mechanism(s):
  1. Identify all clinical events in the Aerobics Center Longitudinal Study (ACLS) database. The researchers will identify and verify all myocardial infarctions, new onset angina and revascularization procedures in ACLS patients who fit the astronaut demographics and who have had more than one CAC measurement.
  2. Update the ACLS database to include information about timing and dose of statin medications. This information will be linked with treadmill time and the clinical events from Aim 1 to develop robust, risk-prediction models.
