Altitude Sickness

What is altitude sickness?

Altitude sickness usually affects us at altitudes higher than 2500 m (8000 ft) above mean sea level. The first feel of reduced oxygen in the air is by getting breathless during activities that would be commonplace to us at home. It is quite similar to a hangover – it causes headache, nausea, and fatigue. This is very common: some people are only slightly affected, others feel awful.

What causes altitude sickness?

Altitude sickness happens because there is less oxygen in the air that you breathe at high altitudes.  It can happen to anyone. Even physically fit individuals are not protected Olympic athletes get altitude sickness too. Part of the mystery of acute mountain sickness is that it is difficult to predict who will be affected. There are many stories of fit and healthy people being badly limited by symptoms of acute mountain sickness, while their older companions have felt fine.

Altitude sickness prevention

Go up slowly, take it easy, and give your body time to get used to the altitude. The body has an amazing ability to acclimatize to altitude. Drink lots of water and eat light food.

Can I take drugs to prevent altitude sickness?

As with everything, many treatments and untested herbal remedies are claimed to prevent mountain sickness. These treatments can make AMS worse or have other dangerous side effects. Only one drug is currently known to prevent AMS and to be safe for this purpose: acetazolamide (diamox). It causes some minor side effects, such as tingling fingers and a funny taste in the mouth.
