Altittude Illness Prevention and Treatment

Stephen Bezruchka MD

Published by the Mountaineers

This very small book will fit into a back pocket and contain crucial information on altitude illness. It describes altitude illnesses but more importantly gives practical advice for those at altitude who may be worried that they might be affected. The algorithms for diagnosing altitude in yourself and others could be potentially lifesaving.

Our clinic strongly recommends this book to all trekkers, mountaineers, and even recreational skiers who may find themselves at altitude.
