To evaluate the role of acute mountain sickness (AMS) in the pathogenesis of stance abnormalities occurring at high altitude, static posturography was applied to 22 healthy subjects at an altitude of 450 m and during a 3-day sojourn at 4559 m. Subjects stood on a platform and sway velocity (S), and sway velocity in the antero-posterior (SAP) and medio-lateral (SML) directions was recorded for 20 s with eyes open (EO) and 20 s with eyes closed (EC). Arterialized blood from an ear lobe was… CONTINUE READING
