Task Mechanisms of Musculoskeletal-Induced Nucleation in Altitude Decompressions Stress II (Completed)
Last Published:  07/30/21 01:05:34 PM (Central)
Short Title: Nucleation Mechanisms II
Responsible HRP Element: Human Health Countermeasures
Collaborating Org(s):
Funding Status: Completed - Task completed and produced a deliverable
Procurement Mechanism(s):
  1. To understand the individual and combined effects of microgravity simulation (non-ambulation) and prebreathe exercise, under the operationally relevant conditions of the two hour PRP Phase II exercise prebreathe protocol.
  2. To understand if the order of heavy and light exercise is consequential in the generation and removal of exercise induced bubble nuclei.
  3. To develop a two hour exercise prebreathe protocol using the cycle ergometer vibration isolation system (CEVIS), that can be safely performed on the ground with ambulatory subjects

Integration/Unique Aspects: Experiment to be conducted at Duke University
