Right and left ventricular adaptation to hypoxia: a tissue Doppler imaging study.

Abstract

Hypoxia has been reported to alter left ventricular (LV) diastolic function, but associated changes in right ventricular (RV) systolic and diastolic function remain incompletely documented. We used echocardiography and tissue Doppler imaging to investigate the effects on RV and LV function of 90 min of hypoxic breathing (fraction of inspired O(2) of 0.12… (More)
