This pre-eminent work has developed over six editions in response to man’s attempts to climb higher and higher unaided and to spend more time at altitude for both work and recreation. Building on this established reputation, the new and highly experienced authors provide a fully revised and updated text that will help doctors continue to improve the health and safety of all people who visit, live or work in the cold, thin air of high mountains.
The sixth edition remains invaluable for any doctor accompanying an expedition or advising patients on a visit to altitude, those specializing in illness and accidents in high places, and for physicians and physiologists who study our dependence on oxygen and the adaptation of the body to altitude.

Top reviews from our customers:
- This is a fantastic ebook. It is very thorough and presents an extensive history on just about every study and topic in the realm of high altitude. So many of the things I thought I knew were explained and disproven or never actually proven. It’s fascinating, but frustrating at the same time. I’ve been reading it thoroughly for a Masters of Science course, but it would be a great book to reference topics. It is well broken up by topics by chapter and then by sections within the chapter and reference to other chapters where applicable to easily find answers.
- Great reference book for studying and understanding the effects of high altitude on humans
