Altitude Adaptation

High Life: A History of High-Altitude Physiology and Medicine

High Life: A History of High-Altitude Physiology and Medicine by John B. West
English | July 15, 1998 | ISBN: 0195121945 | 493 Pages | PDF | 15 MB

The history of high-altitude physiology and medicine is such a rich and colorful topic that it is surprising no one has undertaken a comprehensive account before. From the early balloonists to various high-altitude expeditions, culminating in the great feat of climbing Mount Everest without supplementary oxygen, the basic biological challenge of hypoxia has underpinned the human experience at high altitude. Of key importance in several areas of medicine including pulmonology, critical care, anesthesiology and cardiology, this topic is also of general interest to other life sciences such as biology and ecology, because hypoxia is encountered by many organisms throughout the animal kingdom.
