Rapid ascent to high altitude commonly results in acute mountain sickness, and on occasion potentially fatal high-altitude cerebral edema. The exact pathophysiological mechanisms behind these syndromes remain to be determined. We report a study in which 12 subjects were exposed to a FiO2 = 0.12 for 22 h and underwent serial magnetic resonance imaging(More)
Fibre orientation of myocardial wall plays a significant role in ventricular wall stress, which is assumed to be responsible for many cardiac mechanics, including ventricular remodelling, associated with heart failure. Previous studies, conducted to identify the effects of fibre orientation on left -ventricle (LV) diastolic mechanics, used only animal's(More)
