||Respiratory changes during initial days of acclimatization to increasing altitudes

||Daily changes in respiratory function were monitored in 16 male subjects at sea level and at high altitudes of 3110m, 3445m, and 4177m. Identical studies were carried out among acclimatized subjects staying at 3110m and 4177m for two years. Respiratory function values are tabulated for each altitude. Initial respiratory adjustment occurred by day 3 at 3110m and showed a further decrement at 4177m with a cyclic variation on day 6. Respiratory adaptation to hypoxia in acclimatized subjects were different at 3110m and 4177m.
