Metabolic responses during initial days of altitude acclimatization in the eastern Himalayas.

The study was carried out on 16 men (aged 20-30 years) to evaluate daily metabolic responses during the early phase of altitude acclimatization at moderate altitudes between 3100 and 4200 m in the Eastern Himalayas. Resting (R) and submaximal exercise (E) oxygen consumption (IVO2) at 100 W at sea level (SL) were 3.25 (SEM 0.15) and 20.31 (SEM 0.77) ml/kg… CONTINUE READING
