Objective: Bone loss is an established reaction to diminished muscular activity (Hypokinesia; HK). It has been assumed that periodic fluid redistribution (PFR) could contribute to vascular volume. The fluid volume expansion would then increase tissue perfusion. We hypothesized that chronic PFR could contribute to or increase bone density during HK. Therefore we investigated the potential benefits of bone density with chronic PFR during HK. Methods: Studies were conducted on 40 male volunteers. They were equally divided into four groups: active control subjects (ACS), hypokinetic subjects (HKS), periodic fluid redistribution control subjects (PFRCS) and periodic fluid redistribution hypokinetic subjects (PFRHS). The density of lumbar vertebrae (L1-L4), ulna and radius, tarsal and metatarsal, tibia and fibula were measured during pre-experimental period of 390 days and experimental period of 360 days. Results: Density of lumbar vertebrae (L1-L4), ulna and radius, tarsal and metatarsal, tibia and fibula increased (p<0.05) in the PFRHS group compared to the HKS group. Density of lumbar vertebrae (L1-L4), ulna and radius, tarsal and metatarsal, tibia and fibula decreased (p<0.05) in the HKS group compared to their preexperimental levels and the values in the other groups. In the PFRCS group lumbar vertebrae (L1-L4), ulna and radius, tarsal and metatarsal, tibia and fibula density were improve much less than in the PFRHS group. Bone density was not affected in the ACS group compared to their pre-experimental levels. Conclusion: The current study shows that bone density increases with chronic PFR suggesting potential benefits of bone density with chronic PFR during diminished muscular activity. © 2014, Association of Physiologists and Pharmacologists of India.

Objective: Fluid redistribution (FR) is an important cornerstone in treating diseases. Findings of FR with periodic head down tilt (PHDT) had sparked renewed interest in treating electrolyte disturbances. Therefore this study aimed to determine the potential benefits of potassium (K+) deposition with periodic FR by PHDT during diminished muscular activity (hypokinesia; HK). Methods: Studies were conducted on 40-male volunteers. They were equally divided into 4-groups: active control subjects (ACS), hypokinetic subjects (HKS), periodic fluid redistribution control subjects (PFRCS) and periodic fluid redistribution hypokinetic subjects (PFRHS). Results: Muscle K+ increased (p<0.05) and plasma K+ level and K+ losses decreased (p<0.05) in the PFRHS group compared to the HKS group. By contrast in the HKS group muscle K+ reduced (p<0.05) and plasma K+ level and K+ losses increased (p<0.05) compared to pre-experimental period levels and the values of the other groups. In the PFRCS group the muscle K+, plasma K+ concentration and K+ losses were affected much less than in the PFRHS group. Conclusion: The current study shows that periodic-applied fluid volume addition into the body's regional areas by PHDT increases muscle K+ content and decrease K+ losses suggesting potential benefits of K+ deposition during diminished muscular activity.
