Abstract

Acute mountain sickness (AMS) may develop in nonacclimatized individuals after exposure to altitudes ≥2500 m. Anecdotal reports suggest that endurance-trained (ET) athletes with a high maximal oxygen uptake (V˙O2max) may be at increased risk for AMS. Possible underlying mechanisms include a training-induced increase in resting parasympathetic activity, higher resting metabolic rate (RMR), and lower hypoxic ventilatory response (HVR).
