Abstract:

Volunteer subjects were exposed to accelerations up to 8 Gz for 60 sec. Two separate studies were involved The USAF-CSU-12P anti-G garment was compared with the RAF mini anti-G suit, and the M-1 maneuver was evaluated and compared with PPB at the same G levels. The numerous physiologic measurements included direct eye-level arterial pressure central venous pressure esophageal and gastric pressures suit and mask pressures and ankle venous pressure. Arterial blood gas and pH measurements, A-P chest X-rays, and electrocardiographic data were also obtained. The results of this investigation and their interpretation have been published as USAFSAM-TR-73-21 Leverett et al., 10.
