BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Dynamic cerebral autoregulation is impaired in subjects who develop acute mountain sickness (AMS), a neurological disorder characterized by headache. The present study examined if the normoxic sea-level measurement of dynamic cerebral autoregulation would predict subsequent susceptibility to AMS during rapid ascent to terrestrial high altitude. METHODS A dynamic cerebral autoregulation index was determined in 18 subjects at sea level from continuous recordings of middle… CONTINUE READING
