Prolonged hypobaric hypoxemia attenuates vasopressin secretion and renal response to osmostimulation in men.

Abstract

Effects of hypobaric hypoxemia on endocrine and renal parameters of body fluid homeostasis were investigated in eight normal men during a sojourn of 8 days at an altitude of 4,559 m. Endocrine and renal responses to an osmotic stimulus (5% hypertonic saline, 3.6 ml/kg over 1 h) were investigated at sea level and on day 6 at altitude. Several days of… (More)
