A new system to measure full hematological adaptation is required and here presented. A formula of hematological adaptation or acclimatization. The set of human physiological responses to hypoxia has been well documented for over a century. Beginning with the work of Francois-Gilbert Viault in the s, early studies focused on the Andean pattern of physiological adaptation to high altitude. In the s, research began to focus on understanding the physiological adaptations present.

Multiple problems of perspective and method can arise from the normative and nondynamic environmental descriptions which pervade these analyses.

Failure of these systems to adapt leads to altitude illness or even death [1,2]. Native high-altitude species have been selected through evolutionary processes to have heritable genetic.

Ventilation. One potential point of adaptation in oxygen delivery is ventilation, which, if raised, could move a larger overall volume of air and achieve a higher level of oxygen in the alveolar air (Fig.

2) and diffusion of more immediate increase in ventilation is perhaps the most important response of lowlanders acutely exposed to high altitude, although Cited by: A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text.

The Andean altiplano has long been a focus of research into high-altitude adaptation for a number of reasons including relative accessibility, the large numbers of altitude-adapted species that thrive there, the presence of large indigenous human populations and the early involvement in File Size: KB.

High-altitude exposure has been well recognized as a hypoxia exposure that significantly affects cardiovascular function. However, the pathophysiologic adaptation of cardiovascular system to high-altitude hypoxia (HAH) varies remarkably.

It may depend on the exposed time and oxygen partial pressure in the altitude place. In short-term HAH, cardiovascular adaptation is mainly Cited by: 1.

The percentage of oxygen in the air at two miles ( km.) is essentially the same as at sea level (21%). However, the air pressure is 30% lower at the higher altitude due to the fact that the atmosphere is less dense--that is, the air molecules are farther apart.
