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
