Additionally you can look at haet training as a way to get altitude effects at sea level. The oxygen uptake system is effected by the partial pressure (i.e altitude) and temperature. The lower the partial pressure or the higher the temperature, the less oxygen the cardivascular system carries. By adapting to the stress of higher body temperature, the body becomes more effective at oxygen uptake in a manner similar to the adaptation to altitude.
It would have to get awfully hot at sea level to get PO2 down to that at 6000 feet. PO2 at SL is about 148 mm Hg; at 6000 feet it is about 122 mm Hg. I am sure someone can find a site that will adjust PO2 based on temperature. How hot does it need to be at sea level to drop the PO2 17%? I doubt Atlanta on the hottest day in history gets the barometric pressure down to 610 mm Hg or reduces the PO2 by 17%.
