ABSTRACT: Acute mountain sickness (AMS) and large decrements in endurance exercise performance occur when unacclimatized individuals rapidly ascend to high altitude. Six altitude and hypoxia pre-acclimatization strategies were evaluated to determine their effectiveness for minimizing AMS and improving performance during altitude exposure. Strategies using hypobaric chambers or true altitude were much more effective overall than those using normobaric hypoxia (breathing <20.9% oxygen).
