Can Hanging Upside Down Kill You?

When you were a kid, did anyone ever tell you that your head would explode if you hung upside down for too long? Well... they might have been on to something.

No mention of Inversion Table Therapy? Are there benefits to hanging upside down? How about starting slowly? Hang at less of an angle and for shorter periods and increasing the angle and amount of time after you acclimate.

This makes me think about what effects high G forces have on the body, and how to strengthen the body for high Gs...like if someone races extreme vehicles.

I usually love this channel but this was plain bull shit.....

she could have saved a lot of time and said 'I have no fucking clue why they die''
but here's the real answer:
An aortic dissection is a catastrophic failure of the big artery leading
out of the heart. It can kill in minutes and requires prompt surgery if
the patient is to have any chance, and even then half of all cases
result in death. A common cause is inversion.
Inversion tables can lead to death.. it is not a healthy position for a human...

we shuld do experiments in this subject by suspending criminals upside down untill they die and constantly observe them with various equipment to see just what it is that kills them and why.

Sounds like those kids are perfectly safe, though. I doubt a child will bother to hang like that for more than a few minutes

as a 21 year old, hanging upside down challenges are frequent and competitive,

Автор Dominic Manester ( назад)
So the act of hanging upside down could maybe give temporary vision problems and that's about it. Why not talk about the real danger of slipping and landing on your head and/or neck instead of giving the exact opposite of the impression that its even slightly dangerous?

Well she mentions That U cna die Hanging Upside down WHADa BOUT BATS They Have no idea......What's gonna happen💭💭💭💭 :( Poor poor Bats

Автор Mel Tee ( назад)
I was always told that it was dangerous because the jugluar vein in your neck doesn't have any valves to stop blood from backwashing (since the vein is always effected by gravity, it doesn't seem to need the same valves as the rest of your veins have), so hanging upside-down can cause too much blood to pool in your brain.

Автор Noel Blackketter ( назад)
I'm assuming this has something to do with why astronauts' vision gets messed up in space.

Автор jackfavvv ( назад)
Wait, then how come Bats can hand upside down for a long as they want?

Are you sure teachers say "Your head might explode" or is that youthful imagination changing "you might fall on your head and neck" to that?

Автор ann Biedenbender ( назад)
Olivia! I bet you are a beautiful woman if you would show it! Please start thinking about how you present yourself to the world, keep those sexy glasses maybe just a smaller more square frame. Bet you would make a very sexy librarian. You could be very pretty if you didn't hide behind glasses, big sweaters and pulled back unkempt hair. Maybe people would like your bouncing around then too! Think about it, no offense best of luck on sci show! PS: LIPSTICK

For the eyesight disturbances was it still after a rather prolonged amount of time upside down? And in general is there evidence of negative effects from shorter amounts of time?

But isn't being upside down good for you in small doses - a few minutes at a time? I always heard that inversions in yoga are great for your circulatory system because your heart doesn't have to work so hard to pull blood out of your legs. I do aerial yoga twice a week, which involves a fair amount of hanging upside down, because it's supposed to improve circulation and lower blood pressure. Thoughts on this, people more scientifically and medically knowledgable than me?

What about handstands? Could you suffer any damages from doing a handstand for too long?

Автор Andrew Edwards ( назад)
What about yoga inversion poses that encourage body positions in which the head is below the heart and sometimes legs are above the heart for up to 5 minutes at a time? Is it a short enough period of time to not be of concern? Or are even these lengths of time actually detrimental instead of beneficial to the long term health of your circulatory system?

Автор OurCognitiveSurplus ( назад)
I love that the entire video was about saying it's only a problem in extreme circumstances like being trapped, and therefore the conclusion is that you shouldn't muck around in the playground because it's dangerous.

Автор Gold Dee ( назад)
Ok, sooooo people like Joe Rogan and Jesse Ventura swear by those contraptions that hand you upside down. I believe it is know as Inversion Therapy. Sooooo maybe remake this video and cover that point too. Cause NOW I AM REALLY CURIOUS! THIS VIDEO HAS LEFT ME WITH MORE QUESTIONS THAN ANSWERS!!!! I want ANSWERS!!
