Top Ten Tips to prevent altitude sickness and plan a high altitude trek - Nepal
 
15:32
Learn how to recognise symptoms of mild altitude sickness, as well as the potentially deadly HAPE and HACE (fluid in the lungs/brain). Plenty of advice on how to prepare for the trek, plan a safe itinerary, and what to pack. Follow our family, including our 11-year old son Lionel, on the Annapurna Circuit in winter. See how the altitude affected us as we climbed Thorong La (5,416 meters/ 17769 feet) – Kirk struggled with his breathing, Lionel felt nauseous, and I had mild hypothermia But we all made it safely in the end. SUMMARY *Watch out: some people may feel unwell as low as 2,000 meter (6,500 feet). *Plan a slower ascent above 3,000 meters (10,000 feet) *Climb high, sleep low. To be safe, only gain 300 meters (1,000 feet) in sleeping elevation at high altitude. *If you climb faster than the recommended rate, you can build a rest days every three or four days to acclimatise. *If you suffer from mild altitude sickness, drink a lot, and rest *Avoid alcohol, which slows down breathing and makes you dehydrated. Avoid sleeping pills. And smoking will certainly not help! *If you see no improvement, spend an extra night at the same altitude *If you feel worse, descend to the last place where you felt well *If you develop HAPE or HACE, this is a life-threatening emergency that requires immediate descent of and specialist medical care. You may have to descend in the middle of the night, don't wait till morning. Once fluid builds up in the brain or lungs, you can die in a matter of hours. DISCLAIMER This video is based on first-hand experience of struggling with the altitude on the Annapurna Circuit. We also spent decades of travelling in the Himalayas and Alps. With three decades in TV journalism, I've also done extensive research on the impact of high altitude. I am NOT a doctor, and I do not have direct experience of taking drugs for altitude sickness like Diamox / Acetazolamide or Nifedipine for HAPE or the use of Gamow bags for hyperbaric treatment. So I have not included any information on this topic. Only sticking to what I have first-hand experience of. I hope this video helps you plan a safe and enjoyable trek.

Adventures with Altitude Sickness
 
03:48
I did the Huayhuash circuit in Peru in 2012. This was the highest altitude I've ever been to in my life (5000m). I live at sea level in Australia, where our highest mountain is only 2228m. This was the first time in my life I've felt the affects of having less oxygen, especially whilst exercising. Basically, I felt pretty crap - most of the time, with one particular day when I really just wanted to stop, sleep, be left behind - recognised by some as the symptom called, 'the *uck it factor'. You just can't be arsed to do anything and want to be left alone in your own personal little world of pain.

High Altitude Sickness : How to prevent it? | Take Altitude Seriously!
 
03:16
High Altitude Sickness : How to prevent it? | Take Altitude Seriously! On our trip to Spiti in winter when air is thinner and conditions are harsher than normal; we were prepared for the worst. Although we have traveled to higher altitudes before, but in anticipation we consumed a tablet of Diamox each, a day prior to reaching Kaza. This was to ensure that the preventive action was taken before we moved on to ascend to Upper Spiti Regions (@14000+ feet above sea level) and thankfully it all went well without an incident. The effects of high altitude on humans are considerable. The percentage oxygen saturation of hemoglobin determines the content of oxygen in blood. After the human body reaches around 2,100 m (7,000 feet) above sea level, the saturation of oxyhemoglobin begins to plummet. This leads to the shortness of breath, dizziness and tiredness indicative of altitude sickness. ... But at high altitudes, the outside air pressure is lower than it is inside your lungs, making it more difficult to pull in the thinner air and for your veins to pump oxygen throughout the body. When we breathe in air at sea level, the atmospheric pressure causes oxygen to easily pass through selectively permeable lung membranes into the blood. At high altitudes, the lower air pressure makes it more difficult for oxygen to enter our vascular systems. Acclimatization is key to avoid High Altitude Sickness. During acclimatization over a few days to weeks, the body produces more red blood cells to counteract the lower oxygen saturation in blood in high altitudes. Full adaptation to high altitude is achieved when the increase of red blood cells reaches a plateau and stops. Medication to prevent High Altitude Sickness. Acetazolamide, or Diamox, is the standard medical prophylaxis agent for high altitude illness. The medication is effective in preventing acute mountain sickness (AMS), high altitude pulmonary edema (HAPE), and high altitude cerebral edema (HACE). The best way to prevent altitude sickness is to acclimatize and allow your body to adjust to the decreased levels of oxygen in high-altitude location. Ascend slowly, Sleep low, Take medication, Avoid alcohol & smoking, Delay exercise and consume a lot of water! Take Altitude Seriously!

High Altitude Illness (Acute Mountain Sickness) for USMLE
 
29:23
High Altitude illness, including Acute Mountain Sickness, High Altitude Cerebral Edema (HACE) and High Altitude Pulmonary Edema (HAPE), pathophysiology and management of each condition in handwritten tutorial lecture format for medical students preparing for USMLE. High Altitude Illness are syndromes that occur during or following an ascent. PATHOPHYSIOLOGY OF HIGH ALTITUDE SICKNESS Hypobaric hypoxemia - Pressure of inspired oxygen is equal to Fraction of inspired oxygen is multiplied by the barometric pressure - 47 mmHg. At sea level the barometric pressure is 760 mmHg and so there is 150 mmhg of partial pressure of oxygen. During ascent the barometric pressure decreases causing a decreased in pressure of oxygen inspired. Aclimitization - induction of hypoxemia inducible factor (HIF-1) increases transcription factors that activate over 100 genes that increase oxygen levels. Aortic Bodies and Carotid body detect oxygen levels and when the oxygen levels are low then they will trigger increase ventilation known as the hypoxic ventilation response (HVR). But as you hyperventilate the amount of CO2 begins to decrease, while there is an increase ventilation. This means the acidity will also decrease leading to alkalosis. Hyperventilation does allow maintenance of oxygen, but it is hindered by alkalosis. Central chemoreceptors respond to this carbon dioxide, or actually the acidity produced by the carbon dioxide. As alkalosis develops then there will be a decrease in ventilation reversing oxygen and then causing carbon dioxide to go back up. Renal correction for high altitude illness can help by decreases the bicarbonate level and allowing the carbon dioxide to increase and prevent the negative respiration effect and then increase the oxygen level again. In other words the bicarbonate can stop inhibitory effect of central chemoreceptors. Therefore acclimitization can take up to 2-4 days. Circulatory changes will also occur do to sympathetic activation causing increase cardiac output, blood pressure, heart rate, and venous tone. However, there will also be loss of intravascular volume to offset some of the circulatory changes. Increase in erythropoeitin take 10-14 days and therefore increase RBC. This leads to hemoconcentration that increases the oxygen carrying capacity. Oxygen dissociation curve in high altitude has a left shift due to alkalosis and therefore there will be less oxygen available to tissue. Therefore, the body will produce 2,3-DPG will be produced. This will not help above 4,000meters. HIF-1 also causes angiogenesis causing more BF and oxygen delivery. EPIDEMIOLOGY OF HIGH ALTITUDE ILLNESS Affects all ages and fitness levels, however, there is some genetic factors. The rate of ascent is the largest risk factors. Drugs such as sedative and hypnotics. COPS, Restrictive, Cystic Fibrosis, Pneumonia, Pulmonary Hypertension. However, Asthma and Anemia may improve during ascent and is not a risk factor. ACUTE MOUNTAIN SICKNESS Unadapted individual ascends quickly up a mountain. Symptoms will be similar to alcohol hangover (headache, fatigue, nausea and vomiting). Lab will all be normal (vitals, CBC) therefore it is fairly mild. Treatment consist of conservative such as no further ascent, decrease physical activity. Usually acclimitization occurs within 2-4 days.Symptomatic releif with aspirin and acetominophen. Descent should be done if they are not improving. If there are any neurological or pulmonary edema then must ascend until they feel better. Supplemental oxygen 2-4L/minute for 15-20 minutes especially at night and may be seen as alternative to descent. Hyperbaric oxygen portable and inflatable are also avialable. HIGH ALTITUDE CEREBRAL EDEMA (HACE) Onset on cerebral dysfunction (2000-2500 meter after AMS). Symptoms of ataxis gait, decrease consciousness. LP will have a high opening pressure and hypoxemia. CT will show cerebral edema. Treatment is to descent as soon as possible. Comatose patients you should secure airway. HIGH ALTITUDE PULMONARY EDEMA (HAPE) Generally occurs 2-4 days later and may accompany AMS/HACE. Present with subtle non productive cough 2-4 days at new altitude and more severe at night and exertion. Eventually there will be frothy, frank blood, exercise intolerance, hypoxemia. Tachycardia, tachypnea and inspiratory crackles middle lobe and become more diffuse. Pulse oximetry will show oxygen that will be 10points lower than expected. On Chest X-ray there will be patchy infiltrate. Ultrasound will show extrasvascular lung water. Treatment is to decrease pulmonary artery pressure, decrease physical activity and cold. Supplemental oxygen can cause vasodilation, rest and warm. Finally descent 500-1000m, hyperbaric chamber and CPAP. Pharmacological such as nifedipine sildanefel and beta agonist.

Diamox
 
01:46
Hi, For anyone who watched Johnjoe’s video I hope you enjoyed it! I wanted to add some more indepth information about Diamox and its use as a preventative for altitude sickness when climbing Kilimanjaro, trekking to Everest Base Camp or on an Elbrus climb. If you have not done so already be sure to check out our video and article on Altitude Sickness. It’s important you consult your own doctor before taking Diamox or any other medication. Neither Johnjoe or I are medical professionals and we are only giving our own personal opinions on its usage based on our experiences. Although the vast majority of people don’t suffer any side effects, they do occur and it’s important you are aware of their existence. What is diamox and what does it do? Diamox (Acetazolamide) is a carbonic anhydrase inhibitor. In simple terms Diamox causes the kidneys to excrete more bicarbonate which causes the blood to become more acidic. Acidifying the blood stimulates ventilation, which increases the amount of oxygen in the blood which reduces the chances of getting AMS. What are the potential side effects? Common side effects are increased urination, numbness and tingling in your fingers and toes. A small percentage of unlucky people suffer more severe side effects such as diarrhoea, drowsiness, loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting. While the incidences are low it can cause urinary incontinence in men, especially older men. The important thing to stress with diamox is that you should take it for two consecutive days well before your trip, under normal dietary and exercise conditions. That way if you do suffer any side effects, you will know well in advance of your trip. If it doesn't agree with you, it’s not the end of the world a lot a people don't take Diamox when going to high altitude. Should you take Diamox? At Earth's Edge we highly recommend you try Diamox before departure and if you don't suffer any side effects then take it on your next trip to altitude. It's not going to climb the mountain for you, however it will greatly reduce the chances of you suffering from altitude sickness. Current guidelines suggest 125mg twice per day. If you have any questions or feedback email me on jam@earths-edge.com. All the best, James About James & Johnjoe; James McManus owns and runs Earth’s Edge. He has over 20 years’ experience and leads at least five expeditions to altitude each year. Johnjoe is his dog.

What is HACE (High Altitude Cerebral Edema) and how do you treat it?
 
09:46
High Altitude Cerebral Edema or HACE is an advanced form of altitude sickness. At Indiahikes, we've been noticing many high altitude trekkers struggling from HACE and not knowing what to do. This video is an instructional video about HACE, how to identify the symptoms and how to treat it. Without proper treatment, HACE turns fatal within hours. So it's important to act quickly, much before HACE has actually hit you. Please note that we have not included equipment like oxygen cylinders in the video because not all trekkers have access to this equipment on a trek. We are only talking about three basic medicines, Diamox (Acetazolamide), Dexamethasone and Nifedipine. The instructions in the video are based on real-life experiences and years of high altitude studies. Download the video onto your phone to make better use of it on your trek.

What to take on a high altitude trek
 
13:25
"Carrying a backpack on a trek is not difficult, if you know how to keep it light and comfortable. For that, you should know exactly what to pack in it. The first thing to keep in mind is not to pack for "if" situations. "If it rains, all my clothes are going to get wet. Surely, I must carry spare clothes?" Well, no. Use a poncho instead, to cover yourself and the bag. Your clothes will be dry and so will you! Swathi gives you a list of what exactly to pack on a high altitude trek, to ensure your bag doesn't weight more than 8-9 kg."

SIKKIM TOUR GUIDE -  PART 3   GURUDONGMAR LAKE IN APRIL AT (17500 FT)
 
08:51
Gurudongmer lake is a beautiful high altitude lake situated at 17500ft. This lake is the second highest lake in India. Due to high altitude tourist often gets affected by Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS). Some details details about AMS and primary precautions are as discussed below :- Recommendation:- 1.Recommended not to fly or drive to an altitude of 10000 ft suddenly rather walk up. 2.Minimum acclimatization time required is 1 day (24 hrs). We are acclimatizing at 5000 ft for 3 days but acclimatization time at 10000 ft (Lachen) is not adequate (less than 24 hrs). Therefore we must reach lachen on day 4 as soon as possible. Discuss with TF that we want an early transfer to lachen. 3.Drink minimum 3-4 liters of water per day (stay properly hydrated). Everyone should carry two small 500 ml packed water on day 5. 4.No alcohol & smoking or any depressant drugs at an altitude of 10000 ft and above. Strictly No alcohol & smoking on day 4 & 5. 5.High intake of carbohydrates. Carry candies, potato chips and slice cakes. 6.Sleep less to respire more and increase the frequency of respiration. Types of sickness :- AMS (acute mountain sickness) is common at high altitudes. At elevations over 10,000 feet (3,048 meters), 75% of people will have mild symptoms. The occurrence of AMS is dependent upon the elevation, the rate of ascent, and individual susceptibility. Many people will experience mild AMS during the acclimatization process. Symptoms usually start 12-24 hours after arrival at altitude and begin to decrease in severity about the third day. Symptoms tend to be worse at night and when respiratory drive is decreased. Mild AMS does not interfere with normal activity and symptoms generally subside within 2-4 days as the body acclimatizes.hero! As a general rule, it is far safer (and more enjoyable) to avoid altitude sickness by planning a sensible itinerary that allows for gradual acclimatization to altitude as you ascend The symptoms of Mild AMS include: Headache Nausea & Dizziness Loss of appetite Fatigue Shortness of breath Disturbed sleep General feeling of malaise The signs and symptoms of Moderate AMS include:- Severe headache that is not relieved by medication Nausea and vomiting, increasing weakness and fatigue Shortness of breath Decreased co-ordination (ataxia). Symptoms of HAPO include:- Shortness of breath at rest Tightness in the chest, and a persistent cough bringing up white, watery, or frothy fluid Marked fatigue and weakness A feeling of impending suffocation at night Confusion, and irrational behaviour Symptoms of HACO include:- Headache Weakness Disorientation Loss of co-ordination Decreasing levels of consciousness Loss of memory Hallucinations & Psychotic behaviour Coma. Preventive Medications Diamox (Acetazolamide) allows you to breathe faster so that you metabolize more oxygen, thereby minimizing the symptoms caused by poor oxygenation. This is especially helpful at night when respiratory drive is decreased. Since it takes a while for Diamox to have an effect, it is advisable to start taking it 24 hours before you go to altitude and continue for at least five days at higher altitude. The recommendation of the Himalayan Rescue Association Medical Clinic is 125 mg. twice a day (morning and night). Dexamethasone (a steroid) is a prescription drug that decreases brain and other swelling reversing the effects of AMS. Dosage is typically 4 mg twice a day for a few days starting with the ascent. This prevents most symptoms of altitude illness. It should be used with caution and only on the advice of a physician because of possible serious side effects. It may be combined with Diamox. No other medications have been proven valuable for preventing AMS. Ibuprofen is effective at relieving altitude headache. Nifedipine rapidly decreases pulmonary artery pressure and relieves HAPE.
