Abstract:

Physiological investigations were intended to study mans acclimatization in the Antarctic. The purpose of the observations was to explain the following problems 1 Does the human organism experience any changes under conditions of long-lasting work in the Antarctic and what kind of change 2 Are such changes dangerous to normal vitality of the organism 3 What factors do cause the changes 4 How rapidly do these changes develop and for how long are they preserved after leaving the Antarctic how long do the physiological or pathophysiological changes last and 5 Do such displacement develop in the human organism under conditions of travelling in the tropics. On the basis of collected data, a comparative analysis was made of the process of acclimatizing in Central Arctic and in the Antarctic.
