Methods

Summary

Participants will be asked to join our laboratory in two different days. On the first date, they will perform an incremental ramp test to exhaustion in order to determine their maximum oxygen uptake and fitness status. On the second date, they will complete two constant-load exercise tests, one in normoxia and one in hypoxia. During this second visit, we will monitor cerebral oxygenation and deoxygenation using a non-invasive method (near-infrared spectroscopy). Then, participants will be involved in a two-days expedition to high-altitude, where they will be asked to fill in the Lake Louise scale for acute mountain sickness symptoms.
