REASONS FOR BEING BREATHLESS WHEN WE GO TO HIGHER PLACES?
There is 1.03 kg air pressure for 1 sq. cm o from sea level. In this pressure, oxygen mixes in the blood easily through the pulmonary jowl. In the Thottabetta – summit, which is at 2.637 meter height from the sea level, the air pressure is less than 26%. Here, in the low air pressure, oxygen will not enter in the same proportion. So, health problems like vertigo, giddiness and vomiting may come.
To overcome the problems, body makes the heart to beat in an increasing speed. It tries to get more oxygen by deeply inhaling breath and increasing blood pressure. If we stay in the peak for excessive period, our body creates more red blood cells and increases its concentration. Likewise, small micro vascular vessels grow. Thus after the body gets informed, problems like wheezing and increased heart-beating will stop.
