Abstract:

Experimental studies in a group of 12 highly trained athlets and a group of 12 untrained students lead to the following results 1. During a 20 min tilt 90 degrees, which included two additional respiratory maneuvers, the number of faints and the average cardiovascular responses did not differ significantly between the groups, except for a lower heart rate level in athlets 2. during linear increase of acceleration with a rate of 1G15 sec the average acceleration Gz tolerance blackout level was almost identical in both groups 3. statistically significant coefficients of the product-moment correlation were calculated for the interrelation of the following variables a plus acceleration tolerance and arterial blood pressure at rest plus acceleration tolerance and heart-eye distance total body length and responses of mean arterial pressure to tilt.
