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 ...
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 ...
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)
Introduction: Chronic mountain sickness (CMS) is characterized by exaggerated exercise-induced pulmonary hypertension. Evidences suggest that exercise may cause lung fluid accumulation at high altitude. We hypothesized ...
RV contractility and exercise-induced pulmonary hypertension in chronic mountain sickness: a stress echocardiographic and tissue doppler imaging study
(JACC: Cardiovascular Imaging, 2013-12)
O B J E C T I V E S 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 ...
