Physiological effects of microgravity as risk factors of diseases during space flight

Physiological effects of microgravity as risk factors of diseases during space flight

Patologicheskaia Fiziologiia i Eksperimental'naia Terapiia 2012(2): 70-76

This paper considers to physiological effects of microgravity affecting different organs systems such as cardiovascular, neurohumoral, immune, and musculoskeletal systems. These physiologic changes suggest adverse influence with pathological processes during space flight and associated with high risk of morbidity of cosmonauts.
