Aiming to assess the magnitude of acute mountain sickness symptoms and ventilatory function in subjects intermittently exposed to hypobaric hypoxia, we studied 48 healthy men aged 32.6 +/- 8.2 years old who worked in a gold mine at a altitude of 4600 m, using a schedule of 8-12 days of work at the mine followed by 4 days of rest at the sea level.
