Acute, subacute and chronic mountain sickness.

E Garrido, J Botella de Maglia, O Castillo,

More than 100 million people ascend to high mountainous areas worldwide every year. At nonextreme altitudes (<5500 m), 10-85% of these individuals are affected by acute mountain sickness, the most common disease induced by mild-moderate hypobaric hypoxia. Approximately 140 million individuals live permanently at heights of 2500-5500 m, and up ... Read more >>

Milos Gojkovic, Gabriella S Darmasaputra, Pedro Veliça, Helene Rundqvist, Randall S Johnson,

AIM:High-altitude pulmonary oedema (HAPE) is a non-cardiogenic pulmonary oedema that can occur during rapid ascent to a high-altitude environment. Classically, HAPE has been described as a condition resulting from a combination of pulmonary vasoconstriction and hypertension. Inflammation has been described as important in HAPE, although as a side effect of ... Read more >>
