Abstract
Six healthy, normotensive males were given a familiarization G-tolerance test to grey-out (GTTG) on the human accelerator, followed by a control GTTG and a four-minute exposure to +2.5 Gz during which heart rate, blood pressure, and forearm blood flow were recorded. There were then given 50 mg of Hydro-diuril twice daily, and the GTTG, BP, and Q at +2.5 Gz were repeated after 2 and 4 weeks on the drug. It is concluded that tolerance to + Gz acceleration is reduced by Hydro-diuril in normotensive adult male subjects.
