SOUZA, Jorge Fernando Tavares de et al. The simulated altitude condition worsens mood and increases systolic blood pressure in healthy young. Motri. [online]. 2015, vol.11, n.4, pp.71-81. ISSN 1646-107X.

The literature suggests that stress the environment coupled with the stress of exercise produces psychological and physiological changes. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate the association between the acute effect of moderate physical exercise performed in conditions of simulated attitude about the mood, oxyhemoglobin saturation and blood pressure in healthy young adults. Ten volunteers performed 45 min exercise and have gone through two conditions: Condition normoxic (CN) and Condition hypoxia (CH). In both conditions they responded to two instruments that assess the responses of humor, the Brunel Mood Scale (BRUMS) and the Scale of Subjective Experience in Exercise (SEES), as well as evaluating the oxyhemoglobin saturation and blood pressure. These procedures were performed before, immediately after, 30 min and 60 min after the protocol. After physical exercise in hypoxia condition, the volunteers had higher scores Fatigue, Mental Confusion, DTH, Anger, Psychological distress and lower levels of force and Wellness Positive accompanied by a decrease in oxyhemoglobin saturation. Moderate physical exercise performed at a simulated altitude of 4500m promotes changes in mood and increased systolic blood pressure in healthy young adults.
