High Altitude Resources

There have been requests for some resources on more information about high altitude physiology and medicine.  Here are several resources that we have found to be very informative.


www. ISMMED.org  (International Society of Mountain Medicine) 



Paul Auerbach, MD, his text: Wilderness Medicine (The 5th Edition will be out soon.)

Charlie Houston, MD, his text:  Going Higher

Two excellent articles are:

www.emedicine.com/emerg/topic795.htm – Emedicine article on HAPE

www.emedicine.com/EMERG/topic22.htm – Emedicine article on HACE

This blog is powered by the Wilderness Medicine Newsletter, now celebrating 20 years of publication. The WMN is published and distributed online six times each year by TMC Books, and subscriptions cost as little as $10 per year. To find out more, or to subscribe online, click here.
