Grand Chronic Hypoxia Tour throughout India July 2016 in the city of Jodhpur
In this series of consecutive blogs, you can read about this outstanding scientific tour. Each blog is dedicated to one city and one scientific concept presented in the conference “Extraordinary Adaptation to Chronic Hypoxia and Life at High Altitude”.
Visit and conference at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences in Jodhpur. Prof. Praveen Sharma, Head of the Dept of Biochemistry kindly received the IPPA team along with Prof. Venkatesh and Prof. Nanjundiaha Shashidhara in his office. We then moved to the conference room, for Prof. Dr. Gustavo Zubieta-Callega’s conference on “Extraordinary Adaptation to Chronic Hypoxia”.
ONE CONCEPT INCLUDED IN THE CONFERENCE “Extraordinary Adaptation to Chronic Hypoxia and Life at High altitude”:
The tolerance to hypoxia formula, explaining how paradoxically the higher one goes, the lower hypoxic tolerance there is. At sea level, a low arterial oxygen tension of 60 mmHg is hardly tolerated, however at the summit of Mt. Everest a PaO2 of 27 mmHg is well tolerated.
We then had the opportunity of visiting the new Hospital, outstanding laboratories, endless hallways, giant and grandiose as All India. The AIIMS Jodhpur is one of the leading new medical schools and hospitals in India that has a brilliant future ahead, without doubt.
We had previously visited the Solar Clock with a precision on 1 second in Jaipur. It is remarkable how India has given us these things and also the number “0”.
