The investigators expect to find that different intensity and altitude exposure levels will show what kind of intermittent exposure protocol is more beneficial to athletes and healthy indi...
This study aims to investigate dose based oxygen delivery vs. continuous flow of oxygen during simulated altitude conditions as would be experienced after a loss of pressure during commerc...
The study will evaluate the utility of hypoxic exercise training to improve cardiovascular and metabolic health among obese breast cancer survivors. While participants exercise, a lower fr...
The goals of the present study are to evaluate whether the most common, and effective, treatment for acute mountain sickness (AMS), acetazolamide (AZ), has a negative, positive, or no infl...
Randomized crossover Trial in patients with Pulmonary Hypertension (PAH, CTEPH) to assess the acute response to simulated altitude (FiO2:15.1, equivalent to 2500m above sea level) on cogni...
To compare the effects of natural altitude training and simulated live high: train low training on road race-walking performance (min), as well as treadmill threshold walking speed (km.h) at 4 mmol.L ...
Extravascular lung water (EVLW) increases in healthy adults upon exposure to high altitude, likely due to increased pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR). Older individuals experience increased PVR duri...
Yang, Ying, Duo-Ji Zha-Xi, Wei Mao, Guang Zhi, Bin Feng, and Yun-Dai Chen. Comparison of echocardiographic parameters between healthy highlanders in Tibet and lowlanders in Beijing. High Alt Med Biol....
We aimed to characterize heart rate variability (HRV) during sleep in Andean children native to high altitude (HA) compared to age, gender and genetic ancestry-similar low altitude (LA) children. We h...
High altitude trekking after lung transplantation: A prospective study using lung ultrasound to detect comets tails for interstital pulmonary edema in lung transplant recipients and healthy volunteers.
The intensity of physical activity which can be tolerated after lung transplantation and the tolerance to prolonged exercise at high altitude are poorly investigated. Lung ultrasound comet tails have ...
An environment simulating one or more parameters of the space environment, applied in testing space systems or components. Often, a closed chamber is used, capable of approximating the vacuum and normal environments of space. (From NASA Thesaurus, 1988) This also includes simulated EXTRAVEHICULAR ACTIVITY studies in atmosphere exposure chambers or water tanks.
Healthy People Programs are a set of health objectives to be used by governments, communities, professional organizations, and others to help develop programs to improve health. It builds on initiatives pursued over the past two decades beginning with the 1979 Surgeon General's Report, Healthy People, Healthy People 2000: National Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Objectives, and Healthy People 2010. These established national health objectives and served as the basis for the development of state and community plans. These are administered by the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP). Similar programs are conducted by other national governments.
A vertical distance measured from a known level on the surface of a planet or other celestial body.
A morbid condition of ANOXIA caused by the reduced available oxygen at high altitudes.
A form of glaucoma in which the intraocular pressure increases because the angle of the anterior chamber is blocked and the aqueous humor cannot drain from the anterior chamber.
