Abstract : Controlled physiological responses to gravitational stress is a major concern in cardiovascular simulation. Information pertaining to the physiological effects of positive acceleration on the cardiovascular system has been gathered from the literature and is presented in light of requirements for cardiovascular simulation. Both generalized and long term responses to G stress are considered as well as the transient G studies that were available. (Author)
