Cardiovascular autonomic control and hemodynamics: a comparison between long and short duration space missions

Research project PX/8/LP/13 (Research action PX)


Persons :

  • Prof.  AUBERT André - Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (K.U.Leuven)
    Coordinator of the project
    Financed belgian partner
    Duration: 1/1/2006-31/12/2008
  • Prof. dr.  VAN HUFFEL Sabine - Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (K.U.Leuven)
    Financed belgian partner
    Duration: 1/1/2006-31/12/2008

Description :

Orthostatic ‘intolerance’ (OI), an important physiological consequence of human space flight, is primarily characterized by a fall in stroke volume in the upright position after landing. The aims of this study are to asses the relative contribution of (1) autonomic baroreceptor responses and (2) circulatory adjustments in different topographic vascular beds to the mechanism of OI.

Satellite(s) or flight opportunity(ies):

- ISS

Field of research:

Life Sciences: Gravitational physiology
