The Investigation of the adaptation of the heart and lungs to high altitude

We will continue the work already undertaken on expeditions to Nepal and Bolivia to investigate changes in heart rate, heart rate variability and other simple measures (such as blood pressure) in a large proportion of the trekking teams. As new technology becomes available we hope to be able to use more sensitive measures to predict those who are becoming unwell with altitude illness before they show significant symptoms.
