Altitude Medicine


Tourism at high altitude and adventure trips including mountaineering are increasing and this requires a knowledge and understanding of the health risks, such as gangrene and heart and lung oedema (HACE and HAPE respectively). Acclimatisation and a knowledge of the impact of altitude sickness on the health of the individual are important, together with other preparations for spending time at altitude, including medication.

We offer health checks and medical consultations. We have our own experience of mountaineering on mountains including Kilimanjaro and Stok Kangri in Kashmir in India. You can read more about our expedition to Kilimanjaro here.
