Previous studies have shown that acute hypobaric hypoxia, obtained in a hypobaric chamber, and subsequent reoxygenation, give rise to modifications of the erythrocyte membrane lipid dynamics, resulting in an increased lateral diffusivity of the membrane lipids, and this was interpreted as the result of a modified lipid-protein interaction. The aim of the present study was to determine the effect of the reoxygenation condition in individuals after 3 days at an altitude of 3,500 m above sea level… CONTINUE READING
