Isolated dog heart perfusion at high altitude by Zubieta-Castillo 1964

Increased heart tolerance to hypoxia at high altitude

Prof. Gustavo Zubieta-Castillo performed isolated dog heart perfusion in order to study heart function at high altitude. He then observed that the hearts of high altitude residents were more tolerant to hypoxia than those at sea level, around 1961. This is considered one of the first observations with this concept. Ever since and gradually it has been further studied and applied practically with distinguished colleagues such as Dr. Emilio Marticorena from Peru that showed that high altitude cardiac rehabilitation is faster at high altitude. Frantisek Kolar from the Czech Academy of Sciences Institute, has performed extraordinary advance in research of hearts in rats exposed to hypoxia, further advancing in this concept. We have heard that Alberto Hurtado from Peru had similar ideas. Here is the Newspaper “Ultima Hora” publication back in 1964:

Chronic Hypoxia Symposium IV

Dear colleagues from around the world:

After 3 successful Chronic Hypoxia Symposiums held in La Paz, Bolivia, we are very proud to announce that the IV Chronic Hypoxia Symposium will be held in India under the direction of Prof. Thuppil Venkatesh.

Please stayed tunned for the preliminaries that will soon surface.

In the meantime, we want to thank all those that participated and attended our III Chronic Hypoxia Symposium held in La Paz in Oct 2010. Our President Larry Silver was able to find support from CISCO that transmitted via Webex to all the participants  live presentations from around the world.

Gustavo Zubieta-Calleja
Vice-President
International Society of Chronic Hypoxia
