High altitude physiology High altitude conditions Blood gas
transport Bohr-haldane effect Bohr and Haldane effect Pressure and Oxigen AMB: Ambient
INSP: Inspired

ART: Arterial CO2/H+ are affecting the affinity of Hb for 02 O2 is affecting the affinity of Hb for CO2/H+ Bohr effect Haldane effect Bohr effect Oxygen–haemoglobin dissociation curve Do you remember?...

Bohr-Haldane effect
High altitude conditions Hypoxia decreased dissolved oxygen in the blood Stimulation of peripheral chemoreceptors Respiratory Alkalosis Shift the hemoglobin dissociation curve to the left 2,3-DPG level will increase Return to normal pH Breath more Hb can pick up O2 easier Shift the Hb curve to the right Making O2 delivery easier to tissues Why athletes go to the mountain before a competition? Right shifted Hb curve Easier O2 delivery to their muscles during competition We are at high altitude! High altitude conditions Sergi Fluvià Sabio
