Decrements in skeletal muscle performance and mitochondrial function following hypobaric exposure and enhancing oxyhemoglobin affinity to attenuate these effects in a rodent model

The goal of this project was to determine whether the blood oxygenation effect of 5- hydroxymethyl-2-furfural (5-HMF) improved performance and decreased fatigue in rats exposed to hypobaric hypoxia.
