High altitude sickness (experienced by mountain climbers
and U2 pilots) could lead to a broad spectrum of
disorders in the brain and other organs as a result of
low pressure and oxygen. This research uses a custom
made, MRI compatible negative pressure chamber to
observe the effects of hypobaric pressure on cerebral
blood flow and neurovascular reactivity to hypercapnia.
