Potassium comenate and comenic acid exhibit manifest and virtually identical antioxidant activity under conditions of hypoxia with hypercapnia. The effects of these drugs on conditioned reflex training with positive reinforcement differ significantly. Potassium comenate promotes retention of the learning capacity and memory in hypoxic rats at the level of intact control, that is, exhibits a pronounced protective antiamnestic effect, while comenic acid only facilitates training of the conditioned reflex with positive reinforcement...

Our aim was to determine the effects of pre- and/or postconditioning with mild hyperbaric oxygen (1.25 atmospheric pressure, 36% oxygen for 3 h/day) on the properties of the soleus muscle that was atrophied by hindlimb suspension-induced unloading. Twelve groups of 8-week-old rats were housed under normobaric conditions (1 atmospheric pressure, 20.9% oxygen) or exposed to mild hyperbaric oxygen for 2 weeks. Ten groups then were housed under normobaric conditions for 2 weeks with their hindlimbs either unloaded via suspension or not unloaded...

Hypoxic conditions diminish motor performance and cognitive functions, especially when the motor task and the cognitive task are conducted simultaneously. Hypoxia does further increase prefrontal cortex activity which provokes a reduced capability of efficient resource utilisation. This, again, might evoke that the capacity of the limited mental resources of a dual task will be reached at an earlier stage of task complexity. The purpose of our study was to examine whether a cognitive task would increase gait variability to a higher extent under hypoxic as compared to normoxic conditions...

This study examined whether normobaric hypoxia (NH) treatment is more efficacious for sustaining high altitude (HA) acclimatization during re-introduction to altitude (RA) than no treatment at all. Seventeen sea level (SL) residents (age=23±6yrs; mean±SE) completed in the following order: 1)4d of SL testing, 2)12d of high altitude (HA) acclimatization at 4300m, 3)12d at SL post HA acclimatization (Post) where each received either NH (n=9;FiO2=0.122) or Sham (n=8;FiO2=0.207) treatment, and 4)24-h re-introduction to 4300m altitude (RA) in a hypobaric chamber...

Application of repeated short duration bouts of ischemia to the limbs, termed remote ischemic preconditioning (RIPC), is a novel technique that may have protective effects on vascular function during hypoxic exposures. In separate parallel-design studies, at sea-level (SL; n = 16), and after 8-12 days at high-altitude (HA; n = 12; White Mountain, 3800 m), participants underwent either a sham protocol or one session of 4 × 5 minutes of dual-thigh cuff occlusion with 5 minutes recovery. Brachial artery flow-mediated dilation (FMD; ultrasound), pulmonary artery systolic pressure (PASP; echocardiography), and internal carotid artery flow (ICA; ultrasound) were measured at SL in normoxia and isocapnic hypoxia [end-tidal PO₂ (PETO₂) maintained to 50 mmHg], and during normal breathing at HA...

Energy expenditure (EE) during walking includes energy costs to move and support the body and for respiration and circulation. We measured EE during walking under three different oxygen concentrations. Eleven healthy, young, male lowlanders walked on a treadmill at seven gait speeds (0.67-1.83 m s(-1)) on a level gradient under normobaric normoxia (room air, 21% O2), moderate hypoxia (15% O2), and severe hypoxia (11% O2). By comparing the hypoxia-induced elevation in heart rate (HR [bpm]), ventilation (VE [L min(-1)]) with the change in energy expenditure (EE [W]) at each speed, we were able to determine circulatory and respiratory costs...

High-altitude exposure induces a negative energy balance by increasing resting energy expenditure and decreasing energy intake. This diminished energy intake is likely caused by altitude-induced anorexia and can have detrimental effects for those travelling to high-altitude. We aimed to investigate whether altering the macronutrient composition of breakfast could attenuate altitude-induced anorexia and augment energy intake at high-altitude. Twelve healthy men (aged 26 (8) years, body mass index 23.9 (2.7) kg·m(-2)) completed two, 305min experimental trials at 4300m simulated altitude (~11...

Experimentally induced hypoxia triggers migraine and aura attacks in patients suffering from migraine with aura (MA). We investigated the blood oxygenation level-dependent (BOLD) signal response to visual stimulation during hypoxia in MA patients and healthy volunteers. In a randomized double-blind crossover study design, 15 MA patients were allocated to 180 min of normobaric poikilocapnic hypoxia (capillary oxygen saturation 70-75%) or sham (normoxia) on two separate days and 14 healthy volunteers were exposed to hypoxia...

A reduction in oxygen transport contributes to impaired exercise capacity at high altitude. Since blood flow is mediated, in part, by nitric oxide (NO), we hypothesized that sodium nitrate provided before forearm grip exercise performed at a simulated altitude of 4300 m (hypobaric hypoxia (HH)) would increase forearm blood flow and oxygenation, and decrease the decrement in grip performance. In a double-blind, randomized crossover study, 10 healthy subjects (9 males and 1 female) performed continuous (CGrip) and repeated rhythmic (RGrip) isometric forearm exercise until task failure in normobaric normoxia (NN), 2...

Normobaric hypoxic conditioning (HC) denotes exposure to hypoxia at rest (passive) or combined with exercise (active). HC has been applied acutely (single exposure) and chronically (repeated exposure) to obese populations for managing/increasing cardio-metabolic health and weight loss. Cardio-metabolic health and weight loss responses of obese populations in response to passive and active HC are unclear. A systematic search for articles published between 2000-2017 was carried out. Studies investigating the effects of HC for improving cardio-metabolic health and weight loss of obese populations were included...

BACKGROUND: S. aureus infective endocarditis (IE) is a serious disease an in-hospital mortality of up to 40%. Improvements of effects of antibiotics and host responses could potentially benefit outcomes. Hyperbaric oxygen treatment (HBOT) represents an adjunctive therapeutic option. We evaluated the efficacy of HBOT in combination with tobramycin in S. aureus IE. METHODS: A rat model of S. aureus IE mimicking the bacterial load in humans was used. Infected rats treated with tobramycin were randomized into two groups, 1) HBOT (b...

Purpose: Nitric oxide (NO) bioavailability is reduced during acute altitude exposure, contributing toward the decline in physiological and cognitive function in this environment. This study evaluated the effects of nitrate ([Formula: see text]) supplementation on NO bioavailability, physiological and cognitive function, and exercise performance at moderate and very-high simulated altitude. Methods:Ten males (mean (SD): [Formula: see text]: 60.9 (10.1) ml·kg(-1)·min(-1)) rested and performed exercise twice at moderate (~14...

BACKGROUND: An acute bout of exercise can improve cognitive function in normoxic and hypoxic conditions. However, limited research supports the improvement of cognitive function and mood state in women. The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of hypoxia and exercise on working memory and mood state in women. METHODS: There were 15 healthy women (age = 22 ± 2 yr) who completed the Automated Neuropsychological Assessment Metrics-4th Edition (ANAM), including the Running Memory Continuous Performance Task (RMCPT) and Total Mood Disturbance (TMD) in normoxia (21% O2), at rest in normoxia and hypoxia (12...

INTRODUCTION: Fatiguing of respiratory muscles reduces peripheral muscle perfusion. Further, acute hypoxia enhances respiratory muscle fatigue. This study investigated the effects of inspiratory muscle loading (IML) on resting locomotor muscle perfusion in hypoxia compared to normoxia. METHODS: Ten subjects completed two study days of fatiguing IML (blinded, randomized) in normobaric hypoxia (targeted oxygen saturation 80%) and normoxia, respectively. Contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) of the gastrocnemius muscle and popliteal doppler ultrasonography were used to monitor muscle perfusion...

In the setting of "living high," it is unclear whether high-intensity interval training (HIIT) should be performed "low" or "high" to stimulate muscular and performance adaptations. Therefore, 10 physically active males participated in a 5-week "live high-train low or high" program (TR), whilst eight subjects were not engaged in any altitude or training intervention (CON). Five days per week (~15.5 h per day), TR was exposed to normobaric hypoxia simulating progressively increasing altitude of ~2,000-3,250 m...

Brain edema aggravates primary brain injury and increases its mortality rate after ischemic stroke. It is believed that normobaric oxygen therapy (NBO) may produce neuroprotective effects against ischemic stroke; however, reports have been controversial, and its effects on vasogenic brain edema as a major complication of brain ischemia have not been clarified. The present study investigates the effects of NBO on cerebral edema and blood - brain barrier integrity using rat model of ischemic stroke. Transient focal cerebral ischemia was induced in adult male Sprague-Dawley rats by left middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAO) for 90 min followed by 24 h reperfusion...

Adaptations to heat and hypoxia are typically studied in isolation, but are often encountered in combination. Whether the adaptive response to multiple stressors affords the same response as when examined in isolation is unclear. We examined: i) the influence of overnight moderate normobaric hypoxia on the time course and magnitude of adaption to daily heat exposure; ii) whether heat acclimation (HA) was ergogenic and if this was influenced by an additional hypoxic-stimulus. Eight males (V̇O2max=58.5[8.3] mL·kg(-1)·min(-1)) undertook two 11-day HA programmes (balanced-crossover design), once with overnight normobaric hypoxia (8[1] h per night; 10 nights; FIO2=0...

This study investigated the effects of six weeks of normobaric hypoxic training on transcriptional expression of the genes associated with mitochondrial and glycolytic activities in Thoroughbred horses. Eight horses were divided into two groups of four. They completed an identical incremental, moderate intensity training program, except that one group trained in a hypoxic chamber with 15% oxygen for 30 min on alternate days except Sundays (HT), while the other group trained in normal air (NC). Prior to and post training, heart rate and blood lactate were measured during an incremental treadmill test...

The role of KATP channels in myocardial infarct size-limiting effect of chronic continuous normobaric hypoxia was examined in a rat model based on a 20-min coronary occlusion and subsequent 3-h reperfusion. Rats were adapted to normobaric hypoxia (12% O2) for 21 days. This hypoxia produced a pronounced infarct size-limiting effect, which had been prevented by 0.3 mg/kg glibenclamide, a non-selective inhibitor of entire pool of KATP channels, or 5 mg/kg 5-hydroxydecanoate, an inhibitor of mitochondrial KATP channels...
