Exaggerated exercise-induced pulmonary hypertension causes lung water accumulation and right ventricular dysfunction in patients with chronic mountain sickness
(High Altitude Medicine & Biology, 2010-08-08)
Response to letters regarding article, "Pulmonary and systemic vascular dysfunction in young offspring of mothers with preeclampsia"
We thank Lazdam et al and Yuan et al for their interesting comments on our study.1 Lazdam et al point out that in our study, birth weight in offspring of mothers with preeclampsia was significantly lower than in controls, ...
Increasing respiratory dead space improves sleep disordered breathing and hypoxemia in patients with chronic mountain sickness

Pulmonary and systemic vascular dysfunction in young offspring of mothers with preeclampsia
Background—Adverse events in utero may predispose to cardiovascular disease in adulthood. The underlying mechanisms are unknown. During preeclampsia, vasculotoxic factors are released into the maternal circulation by the ...
Exaggerated pulmonary hypertension during mild exercise in chronic mountain sickness
Background: Chronic mountain sickness (CMS) is an important public health problem and is characterized by exaggerated hypoxemia, erythrocytosis, and pulmonary hypertension. While pulmonary hypertension is a leading cause ...
Systemic vascular dysfunction in patients with chronic mountain sickness
Background: Chronic mountain sickness (CMS) is a major public health problem characterized by exaggerated hypoxemia and erythrocytosis. In more advanced stages, patients with CMS often present with functional and structural ...
Exercise induces rapid interstitial lung water accumulation in patients with chronic mountain sickness
Background: Chronic mountain sickness (CMS) is a major public health problem in mountainous regions of the world. In its more advanced stages, exercise intolerance is often found, but the underlying mechanism is not ...
RV contractility and exercise-induced pulmonary hypertension in chronic mountain sickness: a stress echocardiographic and tissue doppler imaging study
Objectives. The aim of this study was to evaluate right ventricular (RV) and left ventricular function and pulmonary circulation in chronic mountain sickness (CMS) patients with rest and stress echocardiography compared ...
