  • INTRODUCTION The objective of this study was to determine the effect of exercise after altitude exposure (post-exposure exercise) on subsequent altitude decompression sickness (DCS) incidence. Existing USAF prohibition of exercise following altitude chamber training exposures and interest from operational personnel prompted our evaluation of post-exposure exercise as a DCS-inducing stressor. METHODS After a 1-h resting preoxygenation, 67 subjects were exposed to 30,000 ft for 2-h while… CONTINUE READING
