Effects of five consecutive nocturnal hypoxic exposures on the cerebrovascular responses to acute hypoxia and hypercapnia in humans

The effects of discontinuous hypoxia on cerebrovascular regulation in humans are unknown. We hypothesized that five nocturnal hypoxic exposures (8 h/day) at a simulated altitude of 4,300 m (inspired O2fraction__13.8%) would elicit cerebrovascular responses that are similar to those that have been reported during chronic altitude exposures. Twelve male subjects (26.6_4.1 yr, mean_SD) volunteered for this study.
