Intermittent hypoxia is usually studied as a complication contributing to other medical problems, including sleep-disordered breathing. However, it can also be used as a training protocol to improve somatic motor function and increase growth factor expression in the central nervous system (CNS) (Dale et al. 2014). Complication rates, cost, and quality of life are among the many important factors to consider in all forms of assisted ventilation training.
