Acute mountain sickness (AMS) and high-altitude cerebral edema share common clinical characteristics, suggesting cerebral swelling may be an important factor in the pathophysiology of AMS. Hypoxia and hypocapnia associated with high altitude are known to exert strong effects on the control of the cerebral circulation, yet how these effects interact during acute hypoxia, and whether AMS-susceptible subjects may have a unique response, is still unclear. To test if self-identified AMS-susceptible… CONTINUE READING
