  • The phenomenon stems in part from changes in the regulation of blood pressure by the autonomic nervous system and the loss of about 20 percent of the volume of blood fluid - because under conditions of microgravity it is not necessary for systems to maintain blood pressure as body fluid spreads more evenly throughout the body. (weizmann.ac.il)
  • Other significant effects include a slowing of cardiovascular system functions, decreased production of red blood cells, balance disorders, eyesight disorders and a weakening of the immune system. (wikipedia.org)
  • Because the heart is located behind the sternum, and because individuals with pectus excavatum have been shown to have visible deformities of the heart seen both on radiological imaging and after autopsies, it has been hypothesized that there is impairment of function of the cardiovascular system in individuals with pectus excavatum.
