Oxygen play a key role in the life of the cell. Hypoxia leads to a disorder of the vital activity of the organism as a whole. The aim of the work is the analysis and synthesis of literature data on the development of the respiratory system and study hypoxia in the altitude. The features of the formation of compensatory and adaptive mechanisms are traced. Due to the fact that many disease is accompanied by hypoxia, their further investigation with various pathologies in the clinic and experiment is promising and relevant.
