Abstract:

Hypoxia is a constant threat throughout life. The International Hypoxia Symposia brings together international experts from many different fields, with clinicians, clinical researchers and basic scientists present to discuss the state-of-the-art regarding normal and abnormal pathophysiological responses to hypoxia. Representatives from 27 countries joined together for four days of intense presentations, interspersed with superb skiing on nearby Marmot Mountain. At the end of the millennium, many of the papers contained herein mentioned the frontiers yet to be explored in human and animal responses to hypoxia.
