Abstract

The NASA artificial gravity-bed rest pilot study (AGPS) was designed to investigate the efficacy of daily exposure to a +Gz acceleration gradient for counteracting the physiologic decrements induced by prolonged bed rest. Test subjects were continuously monitored by a physician for signs and symptoms of pre-syncope, motion sickness, and arrhythmias while on the centrifuge. In this article, we have summarized the medical monitoring observations that were made during the AGPS and included an assessment of the relative usefulness of the information provided by the various monitoring tools in making a decision to terminate a centrifuge spin.
