Redout

Redout

[red-out]
A redout occurs when the body experiences sufficient negative g-force. Blood flows from the lower parts of the body to the head. It is an inverse effect of a brownout, where blood flows from the head to the lower parts of the body. Redouts are potentially dangerous and can cause retinal damage and hemorrhagic stroke.
