Introduction: Rapid environmental changes, such as successive hypoxic-hypoxic orthostatic challenges (SHHOC) occur in the aerospace environment, and the ability to remain orthostatically resilient (OR) relies upon orchestration of physiological counter-responses. Counter-responses adjusting for hypoxia may conflict with orthostatic responses, and a...

Orthostatic instability is one of the main consequences of weightlessness or gravity challenge and plays as well a crucial role in public health, being one of the most frequent disease of aging. Therefore, the assessment of effective countermeasures, or even the possibility to predict, and thus prevent orthostatic instability is of great importance...

Cardiovascular deconditioning occurs in astronauts during microgravity exposure, and may lead to post-flight orthostatic intolerance, which is more prevalent in women than men. Intermittent artificial gravity is a potential countermeasure, which can effectively train the cardiovascular mechanisms responsible for maintaining orthostatic integrity. S...

Introduction: The physiological adaptations encountered during changes in gravitational force (+Gz) are highly relevant for manned space exploration and countermeasure research and development. While changes in cardiovascular parameters during +Gz challenges have been observed and described in numerous papers, the influence of gender and anthropome...

Intro: Rapid changes in environmental conditions can occur during escape velocity, sub-orbital flight, and atmospheric re-entry. Such a scenario would inherently expose a crew to rapid onset hypoxia and hyper-gravity (+G), which could lead to crew incapacitation, and mission compromise. The likelihood of such a scenario occurring becomes more proba...
Article
Continuous recordings of core body temperature (CBT) are a well-established approach in describing circadian rhythms. Given the discomfort of invasive CBT measurement techniques, the use of skin temperature recordings has been proposed as a surrogate. More recently, we proposed a heat-flux approach (the so-called Double Sensor) for monitoring CBT....

Purpose We hypothesized that lower body microvessels are particularly challenged during exposure to gravity and hypergravity leading to failure of resistance vessels to withstand excessive transmural pressure during hypergravitation and gravitation-dependent microvascular blood pooling. Methods Using a short-arm human centrifuge (SAHC), 12 subjects...
Conference Paper
Introduction: Exposure to hypoxic, hyper-gravitational, and combined hypoxic/hyper-gravity environments can occur during exploration of new and extreme environments. Exposure to these situations can lead to the stimulation of peripheral chemoreceptors via hypoxia, as well as baroreceptor stimulation via hyper-gravity, which trigger a compensatory a...
Article
Introduction: The goal of this study was to determine which anthropometric factors measured via air displacement plethysmography (ADP) play a significant role in augmenting orthostatic stability during sustained acceleration G-force (+G) exposure in a short arm human centrifuge (SAHC). The authors hypothesized that test subjects with a greater norm...
Conference Paper
Introduction The purpose of this investigation was to examine the endogenous physiological cardiovascular counter measures active during 2 rounds of alternating +Gz s in a short arm human centrifuge (SAHC). We hypothesized that the hemodynamic mechanisms at play during initial +Gz, such as increases in heart rate (HR) and total peripheral resistanc...
Conference Paper
Introduction The aim of this study was to determine which anthropometric factors play a significant role in maintaining orthostatic stability prior to hyper gravity +Gz exposure in a short arm human centrifuge (SAHC). Methods 20 +Gz naive test subjects, were exposed to two rounds of +2Gz in a SAHC. The G force profile followed a plan of nine phases...

Background Splenic contraction has been observed to occur in humans during exposition to adverse environmental conditions. This contraction of the spleen results in the expulsion of stored erythrocytes, in which tissue oxygenation is maintained . These splenic contractions are proposed to be an adaptation mechanism, which are primarily triggered du...

Question
Does anyone have any objective criteria (either from publications or technical reports) detailing what typical +Gz loads and durations are for current manned space craft (Orion, Dragon, Starship for example) during take off and orbital re-entry? I am trying to determine an appropriate +Gz Cut-Off. For the Space-Shuttle, I have read it was about +2.5 Gz, but could not find an exact duration of this load. At minimal, I would need a source saying what the expected +Gz load would be for a manned crew for current space craft.
Thanks in advance.
Question
I have a time series analysis, in which I have determined a mean per each phase. When I run an ANOVA Test with repeated measures comparing the phases, I receive a non significant result, despite a visible difference between means per phase. I would assume that this is due to high variability amongst the phases. If I run the same analysis, albeit with a T-Test, then I receive a significant difference between 2 phases. Question is, is this discrepancy due to variability, or another factor? Can one just use T-test on a phase per phase basis, or does a multiple phase analysis require an ANOVA test?
Question
In reporting systemic vascular resistance measurements, one can use mmHg/min/L, dyn/sec/cm5, or pascals per second/cm2. Is there a general consensus from the field of applied physiology or medical physiology as to which one to use? There seems to be a varied use of SVR units used amongst different publications. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. 
Thank you 
Question
Hello, I am looking to verify if a -20/-40 mmHg LBNP load is equivalent to +1/+2Gz stimulus in an SAHC in humans. I assume this is correct, however I am looking for any data which would validate this. Any info would be helpful. Also, bonus points would go to any paper which directly compares the 2 methods. 
Thank you
Question
There are a few papers that discuss what the Compensatory reserve index (CRI) is, and its relevance during simulated hemorrhage. These papers only elude that the CRI is calculated using a unique algorithm. How exactly then, is it calculated. i.e which parameters does one need to calculate (MAP, HR, SV, TRP, etc)? Also, can one calculate the CRI retrospectively?
Question
It is my understanding that, regardless of the formula used, that RMR is 15% higher than BMR.  So, theoretically, if one had BMR's from a large sample (humans), and just multiplied by 1.15, then one should have a reliable RMR for everyone, correct?  Would anyone have any different advice or strategies for this? 
Question
I am attempting to track down reliable data concerning BMI/BSA (anthropometrics) of the German population. So far, my search has not revealed any optimal data. I would be interested in Data from the last 10 years ideally. 
Thank you
Question
Today marks the day in which the renewable resource of the planet have been exhausted, which creates a so-called Ecological Debt. I would like to know how statistics for this statement are compiled? How serious is this claim on scientific merit? 
Question
During my preparation for state boards in Germany, I have come across a trend particularly for viral infections. In complete blood count analysis during an acute infection, one often finds an increase in Lymphocytes as well as a decrease in Thrombocyte counts. Is the thrombocytopenia a reaction due to this lymphocytopenia (due to bone marrow proliferation and cytokine release), or are the thrombocytes being degraded as a result of the infection (increase in spleen size due to sequestration or increased turnover of thrombocytes)? Any insight on this would be valuable. 
Thanx

Project
The 5G-OR demonstration project aims to establish the next generation of a 5G-enabled operating room (OR) ecosystem to improve patient outcomes. The value of 5G will be shown in 4 relevant use cases in 3 OR test environments equipped with interoperable 5G infrastructures in hospitals in Strasbourg, Berlin and Mannheim.
Project
The development of a non-invasive sensor system which non-invasively tracks collateral network oxygenation and perfusion pressure for patients undergoing aortic surgery. The goal is to expand non-invasive perioperative neuro-monitoring to reduce perioperative complications such as spinal cord ischemia.
Project
The objective of project AuReLia is to develop a new monitoring method using non-invasive sensors to be comfortably worn on the patient’s head and body for the monitoring of cerebral blood supply in the perioperative setting. The continuous monitoring of cerebral perfusion and autoregulation is supposed to allow the attending anesthetist to intervene when faced with im-pending cerebral hyper- or hypotension and consequently reduce the patient’s risk to experience delirium.
