Does Altitude Acclimatisation Alleviate the Hypoxia-Induced Suppression of Exogenous Glucose Oxidation During Steady-State Aerobic Exercise?

Research Paper Title Altitude Acclimatisation Alleviates the Hypoxia-Induced Suppression of Exogenous Glucose Oxidation During Steady-State Aerobic Exercise. Background This study investigated how high-altitude (HA, 4300 m) acclimatisation affected exogenous glucose oxidation during aerobic exercise. Methods Sea-level (SL) residents (n = 14 men) performed 80-min, metabolically matched exercise ( V˙ O2 ∼ 1.7 L/min) at SL… Read More

Military Aircrew & High Altitude Hypoxia Training … erm … Remembering Stuff!

Research Paper Title Mechanisms of Memory Dysfunction during High Altitude Hypoxia Training in Military Aircrew. Background Cognitive dysfunction from high altitude exposure is a major cause of civilian and military air disasters. Pilot training improves recognition of the early symptoms of altitude exposure so that countermeasures may be taken before loss of consciousness. Little is… Read More

Nutrition & Performance at Altitude

Research Paper Title Optimizing Nutrition for Performance at Altitude: A Literature Review. Abstract Human beings are unique for their capacity to maximise their physical potential through various means. High altitude mountaineering is one such way that people challenge generally accepted notions about what is biologically and volutionarily possible. While a 20,000+ft summit may be uninhabitable… Read More
