Short Title: Lunar CV Alterations
Responsible HRP Element: Human Health Countermeasures
Collaborating Org(s):
Flight Analogs Project (FAP)
Funding Status: Completed - Task completed and produced a deliverable
Procurement Mechanism(s):

Aims:
1. to study the time course of the fluid shifts and plasma volume losses experienced during a simulated trip to, and extended habitation on, the Moon. 
2. to evaluate the effect of this volume change on cardiac function using newer preload-independent echocardiographic techniques. 
3. to validate the current computational model and further quantify the crew health and performance risks associated with extended duration missions to the Moon and other partial Earth gravity environments.
