Abstract
Plasma and urinary levels of lactic acid were measured in rats exposed to simulated altitudes of 18,000, 24,000 and 26000 ft for 6 hr periods. Injection of adrenalin urinary lactate levels at altitude whereas prior fasting eliminated altitude-induced increases in lactic acid. Urinary lactate shows promise as an indicator of the severity of hypoxic stress at altitude.
