Blood volume changesRed cell mass measurements on Skylab crewmembers revealed a statistically significant decrease in circulating red cells. Low reticulocyte counts at crewmember recovery indicated increased splenic removal of reticulum or decreased bone marrow production rates. After the initial loss there is at least a 30-day delay before red cell mass begins to reconstitute itself.
