Prediction of susceptibility to acute mountain sickness by SaO2 values during short-term exposure to hypoxia.
Prediction of the development of acute mountain sickness (AMS) in individuals going to high altitudes is still a matter of debate. Whereas some studies found that subjects with a blunted hypoxic… Expand
Prediction of the susceptibility to AMS in simulated altitude
Acute mountain sickness (AMS) develops when rapidly ascending to high altitudes. However, some mountaineers will suffer from AMS even at 2,000 m and others not until 5,000 m. The awareness of the… Expand
Intermittent hypoxia increases exercise tolerance in elderly men with and without coronary artery disease.

BACKGROUND Intermittent hypoxia has been suggested to increase exercise tolerance by enhancing stress resistance and improving oxygen delivery. Because the improvement of exercise tolerance reduces… Expand
Interval hypoxic training improves autonomic cardiovascular and respiratory control in patients with mild chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
Objectives Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is associated with cardiac autonomic nervous system dysregulation. This study evaluates the effects of interval hypoxic training on… Expand
Normobaric Intermittent Hypoxia over 8 Months Does Not Reduce Body Weight and Metabolic Risk Factors – a Randomized, Single Blind, Placebo-Controlled Study in Normobaric Hypoxia and Normobaric Sham…
Objective: Both a 1- to 4-week continuous or intermittent stay and moderate exercise in hypoxia versus normoxia can lead to weight loss. We examined the reproducibility and durability of added… Expand

L-arginine-L-aspartate is widely used by athletes for its potentially ergogenic properties. However, only little information on its real efficacy is available from controlled studies. Therefore, we… Expand

Abstract In this study, we examined the effects of a pre-acclimatization programme on endurance performance at moderate altitude using a resting intermittent hypoxia protocol. The time-trial… Expand
Shuttle-run sprint training in hypoxia for youth elite soccer players: a pilot study.
- H. Gatterer, M. Philippe, Verena Menz, F. Mosbach, M. Faulhaber, M. Burtscher
- Journal of sports science & medicine
- 1 December 2014
The purposes of the present study were to investigate if a) shuttle-run sprint training performed in a normobaric hypoxia chamber of limited size (4.75x2.25m) is feasible, in terms of producing the… Expand
Changes in cardiac autonomic activity during a passive 8 hour acute exposure to 5 500 m normobaric hypoxia are not related to the development of acute mountain sickness.

- 30 January 2012
Alterations in the autonomic nervous system after ascent to high altitude may be related to the development of acute mountain sickness (AMS). So far, the time course of cardiac autonomic modulation… Expand
Sildenafil and bosentan improve arterial oxygenation during acute hypoxic exercise: a controlled laboratory trial.
- I. Olfert, A. Loeckinger, +5 authors A. Kleinsasser
- Wilderness & environmental medicine
- 1 September 2011
OBJECTIVES Sildenafil and, recently, bosentan have been reported to increase arterial saturation and exercise capacity at altitude. The mechanisms behind this are still poorly defined but may be… Expand
