Summary Introduction

To review:

Whether the following statement, “In individuals who have acclimatized to a high altitude, an increased cardiac output (CO) is seen,” is true or false.

Introduction:

CO (cardiac output) is a term that is used to explain the total volume of blood being pumped by the heart per minute. The cardiac output is the same as oxygen uptake when at the sea level. Diseases may occur if the CO is disturbed.

Explanation

The development of polycythemia (increase in the levels of red blood cells in the body) in individuals living at higher altitudes has been found to be associated with no change in CO in these individuals. During an acute experience of hypoxic atmosphere, the CO increases which, then, increases the delivery of oxygen to the cells...
