There is no consensus whether high altitude increases blood pressure and if it is clinically important. High altitude is associated with decreased renal blood flow and an increased release of sympathetic neurotransmitters that may lead to increased blood pressure. Increased peripheral resistance or increased carotid sinus activity might also cause an increase in blood pressure. A systematic review was carried out and the quality of the observational studies was assessed using the criteria in the STROBE statement. The number-needed-to-harm was determined for the relevant primary and secondary endpoints. Twelve studies were included reporting on the effect of altitude or exercise on blood pressure. Lowlanders living at high altitudes had lower blood pressure compared with natives living at sea level. They were found to have a higher heart rate but not with the same increase in carotid artery. In both studies the number-needed-to-harm was lower than 50. However, there was a trend to increased numbers of adverse outcomes in lowlanders at high altitudes. There is no evidence that going to high altitudes increases blood pressure, but there is a suggestion that it harms individuals who do so. Most studies are relatively small, thus low numbers are needed to harm may not necessarily translate into a clinically significant change.N-Acetylcysteine prevents the increase in plasma oxidized low-density lipoprotein and C-reactive protein induced by chronic ethanol administration in humans.
The goal of the study was to examine the effect of N-acetylcysteine administration on atherosclerotic biomarkers in blood plasma, oxidative stress markers in serum, and antioxidant capacity of the plasma of moderate alcohol consumers. The secondary goal was to provide evidence of the prooxidant effect of alcohol and antioxidative defense of acetylcysteine in vivo. Thirty healthy subjects were randomized into two groups: experimental group (EG, n=10; 10 g of N-acetylcysteine administered orally each day) and control group (CG, n=20). Ethanol intake of the CG did not change significantly during the study period (P>0.05). However, in EG, a non-significant increase in alcohol intake (from 16.4+/-0.74 to 21.7 g/day; P=0.06) and in
