Table 3

Inflammatory markers and physiologic parameters of persons developing AMS versus those not developing AMS during acute hypoxic exposure and retrospectively at sea level (normoxia).


Heart rate (1/min)0.750.47
SaO2 (%)0.700.16
PaO2 (kPa)0.730.12
LLS-AMS 0.250.001
suPAR (ng/mL)0.100.49
CRP (mg/L)0.380.67
IL-6 (ng/L)0.840.77

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].
