Similar hypoxic ventilatory responses in sea-level natives and high-altitude Andean natives living at sea level.

Abstract:

High-altitude (HA) natives have blunted ventilatory sensitivities to hypoxia, and it is uncertain whether this blunting is reversible on migration to sea level (SL). To study this, the ventilatory sensitivities to hypoxia of HA natives residing near SL were compared with those of SL natives. Two studies were performed. In study A, 24 HA subjects who had lived above 3,000 m for an average of 14 yr and had been resident at SL for an average of 23 yr were compared with 23 SL controls. In study B...
