What to do Once You arrive to The Inka Capital Cusco (Qosqo)
Many people ask for altitude sickness, wondering it will cause problems. This is caused by having less oxygen in your bloodstream at higher altitudes than sea level, it make to force hard your body for oxygen in some points your body get tired even dehydrated, dizziness, vomiting or nausea andlose your appetite. Less breathing is common at high altitudes. It involves alternate periods of deep and shallow breathing, and breathing may even cease for between 3 and 15 seconds. When it occurs at altitude, periodic breathing is not a medical problem on its own. It is just the body’s physiological response to having lower-than-normal oxygen levels in the atmosphere. Your body reacts to this by making you breathe faster and deeper. This in turn, causes a quick build-up of carbon dioxide in your blood, which feeds back to your respiratory system causing your breathing to slow down or even stop for a short while. When your body senses a further drop in oxygen levels in the blood, it is kick-started into breathing faster and deeper again. And so the cycle continues.
Periodic breathing can interfere with your sleep if the periods of no breathing wake you up or make you sleep restlessly. If this becomes a problem, taking the prescription medicine acetazolamide (Diamox) may help. (ASK YOUR DOCTOR).
