THE EFFECTS OF INTERMITTENT HYPOXIC TRAINING ON AEROBIC CAPACITY AND ENDURANCE PERFORMANCE IN CYCLISTS
The aim of the present study was to evaluate the efficacy of intermittent hypoxic training (IHT) with 95 % of lactate threshold workload (WRLT) on aerobic capacity and endurance performance in well-trained cyclists. Twenty male elite cyclists, randomly divided into … Continue reading
Role of intermittent hypoxia in the treatment of bronchial asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
Summary: Recent research outlines the value of IHT as a therapeutic strategy for the treatment of COPD patients, leading to more efficient ventilation. Additionally, IHT might represent an attractive method to complement the known beneficial effects of exercise training and … Continue reading
The role of hypoxia in the neurodevelopmental model: stimulator of mental disorder, means of therapy and prevention, or stimulator of genius?
About 30 years ago, a neurodevelopmental model of mental disorders was proposed. It has now been widely accepted and developed. This model suggests that abnormalities in brain development during pre- and perinatal life lead to psychotic manifestation in adolescence or … Continue reading
It was 20 degrees below freezing, and night-time, when a multimillionaire from Mayfair set off into the Death Zone.
To climb the remaining 800 metres to the mountain’s summit and return to camp before hypoxia – oxygen deficiency – takes its lethal toll, it is necessary to start out after 10pm. That way, the downward section, when exhaustion has … Continue reading
improvement in performance could also be explained by other mechanisms involving muscular, hormonal or respiratory parameters as improvement in locomotion economy, muscle buffering capacity, or ventilatory efficiency. Indeed, the expert scientists in the field have recently been debating whether or … Continue reading

Soccer teams from high altitude countries have a significant advantage when playing at both low and high altitudes, finds a new study. In contrast, lowland teams are unable to acclimatise to high altitude, reducing physiological performance. At altitude, lack of … Continue reading
