hypobaric

 [hi″po-bār´ik]
characterized by less than normal pressure or weight; applied to gases under less than atmospheric pressure, or to solutions of lower specific gravity than another taken as a standard of reference.

hy·po·bar·ic

(hī'pō-bar'ik),
1. Pertaining to pressure of ambient gases below one atmosphere.
2. With respect to solutions, less dense than the diluent or medium; for example, in spinal anesthesia, a hypobaric solution has a density lower than that of spinal fluid.
[hypo- + G. baros, weight]

Recently, interest in periodic exposure to high altitudes, also known as chronic intermittent hypobaric hypoxia (CIHH), as occurring in various working conditions, was raised.
Groups of male and female Wt and STAT5-/- mice were exposed to hypoxia (10% hypobaric oxygen) for 4 weeks or kept under normoxic conditions, and the development of PAH was first evaluated as previously reported (RVSP, ratio of RV/LV + S weights, increased muscularization of vessels, and increased arterial wall thickness) [19].

[3] Arteries dilate as oxygen ([O.sub.2])-rich blood and nutrients are drawn into the tissue (hypobaric), resulting in a higher available concentration of [O.sub.2] and supplements in the muscle, [4] followed by an atmospheric pressure phase, a relief of the reflux, when carbon dioxide (C[O.sub.2]) and metabolic waste products are pressed back into the upper body through the circulatory system and the lymphatic vessels.
