Summary

We will recruit 30 healthy human participants and measure their blood pressure in their arm. We will then place two commerically-available, FDA-approved tourniquets around each thigh to stop blood flow to the legs. We will measure the blood pressure in the arms again. We will then release the tourniquets after blood pressure measurement. This will be repeated three times with breaks between each repetition.
