BACKGROUND Some reports claim that ventilation (VE) is greater in human subjects in normobaric hypoxia than at altitude following an equivalent drop in inspired PO2 (PIO2). It has been suggested that reduced barometric pressure (PB) may decrease chemoreceptor sensitivity and account for these results. In this pilot study we tested the hypothesis that VE and hypoxic chemoresponsiveness would not be different after 30 min of normobaric hypoxia and altitude. METHODS We exposed three male and… CONTINUE READING
