Title The Bellagio report: Cardiovascular risks of spaceflight: Implications for the future of space travel
Bibliographic information Sep. 2005, Vol.76, No.9, p.877-895. 152 ref.
Abstract An international group of experts convened in Bellagio, Italy in 2004 to review available literature for cardiac risks in spaceflight. This led to the creation of a priority assessment framework to allow for an objective assessment of the hazard, the probability of its occurrence, potential mission impact and available risk mitigation factors. This article highlights important aspects of cardiovascular risks in spaceflight and discusses counter measures and potential operational changes.
