Last Published:  07/29/22 01:33:24 PM (Central)
Short Title: Ames AG EPSCoR
Responsible HRP Element: Human Health Countermeasures
Collaborating Org(s):
NASA Ames Research Center (ARC)
Funding Status: Completed - Task completed and produced a deliverable
Procurement Mechanism(s):

Specific aim 1: To use a hypovolemia model (furosemide infusion) to simulate cardiovascular deconditoning observed after short duration spaceflight and bed rest simulations of space flight.

Specific aim 2: To determine effects of Artificail Gravity (AG) exposure on the orthostatic tolerance limit (OTL) of cardiovascularly deconditioned women and men.

Specific aim 3:To determine mechanisms associated with AG exposure-induced changes in OTL of cardiovascularly deconditioned women and men.
