Validation of On-Orbit Methodology for the Assessment of Cardiac Function and Changes in the Circulating Volume Using Ultrasound and Braslet-M Occlusion Cuffs, SDTO 17011 U/R (Braslet)

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Validation of On-Orbit Methodology for the Assessment of Cardiac Function and Changes in the Circulating Volume Using Ultrasound and Braslet-M Occlusion Cuffs (Braslet) is Station Development Test Objective (SDTO) 17011 sponsored by NASA and Russian Federal Space Agency (FSA). Braslet is testing the ability of ultrasound to detect cardiovascular changes in response to volume distribution changes that are induced by the Braslet occlusion cuffs. Understanding the effects of this countermeasure on cardiovascular function in a microgravity environment will be useful for both medical operations and future research.
