Modelling study of the acute cardiovascular response to hypocapnic hypoxia in healthy and anaemic subjects


The present study analyses the cardiovascular response to acute hypocapnic hypoxia (simulating the effect of respiration at high altitude) both in healthy, unacclimatised subjects and in subjects with moderate anaemia, by means of a mathematical model of short-term cardiovascular regulation. During severe hypoxia, cardiac output and heart rate (HR) exhibit… (More)
