Going Higher - Oxygen, Man and Mountains

Hypoxia at high altitude and in everyday life
Winnaar: Mountain Exposition Award bij
Bannf Mountain Book Festival
Cutting-edge information on how to prevent, diagnose, and treat altitude illness and hypoxia in everyday life · Interweaves fascinating research discoveries with dramatic first-person accounts · Authored by a celebrated mountaineer and physician who pioneered research in the field From the time of his historic expedition to Nanda Devi in the high Himalaya, Charles Houston, M.D., has been fascinated by the effects of altitude on the human body. Why do people get sick in the mountains? What are the symptoms of hypoxia-lack of sufficient oxygen-that also occurs in everyday life, sometimes chronically due to disease? How can we decrease the incidence of illness and death? This substantially revised edition incorporates new research of the last 10 years. Houston joins forces with an educator and a medical writer in a text made even more accessible for the average reader while retaining the depth of material of particular use to the medical community. It includes new chapters on vision and the eye at altitude, chronic and subacute altitude illness, and the limits to work at altitude (with implications for athletic training). It presents current information on genetics and gender differences and more on flight and space travel, on understanding and treating sea-level hypoxic illnesses, and on who can (or should not) go to high altitude, and much more. With an expanded glossary of terms.
