Supplemental Oxygen Reference where the BigCat was a research subject: Randall L Wilber, Paige L Holm, David M Morris, George M Dallam, Andrew W Subudhi, Dennis M Murray, Samuel D Callan, "Effect of FIO2 on oxidative stress during interval training at moderate altitude" Med Sci Sports Exerc . 2004 Nov; 36(11):1888-94.
Conclusion: Supplemental oxygen used in conjunction with high-intensity interval training at altitude ("live high + train low via supplemental O2" (LH + TLO2)) results in a significant improvement in exercise performance without inducing additional free radical oxidative stress as reflected in hematological and urinary biomarkers.
