||Effect of high terrestrial altitude and supplemental oxygen on human performance and mood
||Aug. 1992, Vol.63, No.8, p.696-701. 26 ref.
||In a study to investigate the effects of high terrestrial altitude on human performance, 13 male soldiers ascended in 10min from sea level to 4,300m (simulated) and remained there for two and a half days. Subjects carried out cognitive tests and mood tests and completed a questionnaire to assess the severity of acute mountain sickness (AMS) symptoms. Following rapid ascent, performance was most affected during the first eight hours. Recovery of cognitive function was slower in subjects suffering from AMS.
