Cardiovascular research participants needed

Submitted by Carl Ade

Thomas Barstow, department of kinesiology, is seeking volunteers to participate in cardiovascular research examining the effects of age on muscle blood flow control.

Volunteers must be healthy men at least 50 years of age or older, nonsmokers, free of cardiovascular disease, not taking blood pressure or cholesterol medications and are not currently exercising more than 150 minutes per week.

If eligible, you will visit the human exercise physiology laboratory on three separate mornings for about a two-hour period. At each visit you will lie on an exam table and perform a mild handgrip exercise while non-invasive measurements of blood pressure and flow are made. If interested please contact Carl Ade at cade@k-state.edu or 785-532-0717.
