Intermittent hypoxia represents a risk for sudden death, cardiac failure and certain forms of hypertension (Jain, 2007; Lavie, 2003), also for diseases involved with reduced oxygen diffusion due to an increase in the distance between the capillary bed and mitochondria.

ARTICLE INFO Keywords: Ginkgo biloba Intermittent hypoxia Neurobehavioural deficits Oxidative and nitrosoactive stress Passive avoidance reflex test DNA damage ABSTRACT The aim of the present study was to explore the potential protective effect of Ginkgo biloba extract (EGb 761) on intermittent hypoxia (IH)-induced memory deficits and oxidative stress in rats.
Another interesting subject for consideration, and one that also possibly confounds our preconceptions, is the spectrum of effects attributed to intermittent hypoxia (7).
Chapters address specific questions such as the role of glutamate/NMDA, the mechanisms of penumbral cells, the importance of intermittent hypoxia, and gene regulation under stressful conditions.

It has also been shown that intermittent hypoxia is related to clinical cases of hypertension (26), insulin resistance (27,28), atherogenic dyslipidemia (29), neurohumoral disorders (30), pulmonary hypertension (4), endothelial dysfunction (7), and inflammation (11).
Animal studies have shown that intermittent hypoxia "is very injurious" to the cerebellum, the part of the brain that controls blood pressure and breathing, and to the hippocampus, which controls memory, said Ron Harper, a neurobiologist at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA.
