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 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”.
