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

The formula of Adaptation to high altitude. The fundamental variables are time and altitude. The time factor of adaptation to high altitude is trascendental for adaptation, and the hemoglobin increase is considered the optimal adaptation factor. The curves showing the increase and time taken to reach to the optimal hematocrit on an ascent to city like La Paz, between 4100 and 3100m, were shown and analyzed. The hemoglobin increase is the most energy efficient mechanism of adaptation, reducing the extra energetic cost of the cardio-pulmonary system and allowing for the optimal exercise performance at high altitude.
