ONE CONCEPT INCLUDED IN THE CONFERENCE “Extraordinary Adaptation to Chronic Hypoxia and Life at High altitude”:

The Triple Hypoxia Syndrome (THS) created by Prof. Dr. Gustavo Zubieta-Castillo, was explained. It is due to the superimposition of three different types of hypoxia: [1] Normal high altitude adaptation to hypoxia, [2] Polyerythrocythemia hypoxia (CMS) and [3] acute hypoxia that can be reversed by oxygen. The THS is similar to “surviving” in the summit of Mount Everest. It may be caused by viral infections (gripe) or some other acute respiratory disease, with malaise that lasts several days without treatment and typically is reversed by 24 hours of oxygen to PaO2 baseline values of their chronic condition with Polyerythrocythemia (The sign that results from multiple diseases at high altitude, previously known as Chronic Mountain Sickness). This diagnosis is fundamental to treat patients with increased Hematocrits at high altitude.
