Table 2

Inflammatory markers and physiologic parameters of HAPE-susceptible and non-HAPE-susceptible persons at sea level (normoxia) and during acute hypoxic exposure.


Heart rate (1/min)0.070.13
SaO2 (%)0.010.74
PaO2 (kPa)0.811.00
LLS-AMS 0.640.97
suPAR (ng/ml)0.040.66
CRP (mg/L)0.930.25
IL-6 (ng/L)0.530.62

Values are given as mean ± SD. SaO2: oxygen saturated hemoglobin fraction and LLS-AMS: Lake Louise score for acute mountain sickness; the cutoff value for the presence of AMS is defined as LLS-AMS ≥ 5 [29, 30].
