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 1G/15 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.
