Questions & Answers

if a person is visiting Denver CO why may they need to increase the rate of ventilation until they adapt?
Amy Reply
pressure changes between the atmosphere and thoracic cavity will change creating more ventilation. Also there is less pressure of Oxygen and hemoglobin already has less affinity for it than CO2 so there is less to bind than your body might be used to, increasing CO2 build up.
Kevin
To compensate for the CO2 build up we breathe faster to make our blood less acidic. Eventually EPO will kick in build more RBC to compensate for the lower O2 concentration.
