Physiological Adaptations to Simulated Intermittent Altitude on Human Health and Performance

2019-07-10 22:44:26 | BioPortfolio

Summary

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 individuals that experience acute exposure to altitude during exercise. This may furthermore be related to acute altitude exposure for recreational exercise use as well.

Influences of hypobaric hypoxia on skin blood flow and sweating responses during exercise in neutral and hot environments.

Exposure to hot environments augments cutaneous vasodilation and sweating during exercise compared to these responses in cooler environments. The effects of hypobaric hypoxia on these responses are le...

Hypoxic tests and prediction of high altitude illnesses.

More and more travelers are exposed to high altitude, for example, 176'000 trekkers/climbers were registered in Nepal in 2017. Individual predispositions, a history of altitude illness, the existence ...

A Case of Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension in a High-Altitude Dweller.

Chronic hypoxia causes sustained pulmonary vasoconstriction and vascular remodeling leading to development of pulmonary hypertension in high-altitude residents. Although pulmonary hypertension is of m...

Mountain climbers may develop specific illnesses that largely depend on the altitude reached and the rate of ascent. The popularity of travel to high altitude destinations, extreme tourist activities ...

The Complexity of Diagnosing High-Altitude Pulmonary Edema: A Case Report and Review of the Differential Diagnosis of Greater Than Expected Hypoxemia at Altitude.

High-altitude pulmonary edema (HAPE) is a common presumptive diagnosis for a patient who experiences significant dyspnea and cyanosis at altitude. In this study, we present a case of a 58-year-old wom...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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 change in cardiovascular function resulting in a reduction in BLOOD VOLUME, and reflex DIURESIS. It occurs frequently after actual or simulated WEIGHTLESSNESS.

External decompression applied to the lower body. It is used to study orthostatic intolerance and the effects of gravitation and acceleration, to produce simulated hemorrhage in physiologic research, to assess cardiovascular function, and to reduce abdominal stress during childbirth.

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.
