INTRODUCTION It has been demonstrated that the cerebrovascular response to hypoxia is blunted following 10 d of intermittent hypoxia (IH) in healthy humans. The purpose of this study was to test the hypothesis that IH reduces the cerebrovascular response to CO2. METHODS Healthy male subjects (N=8; 25±2 yr) were exposed to 10 consecutive days of IH (12% O2 for 5 min followed by 5 min of normoxia for 1 h/d). The cerebrovascular response to CO2 was assessed prior to (PRE-IH) and following (POST… CONTINUE READING
