This book explores how humans respond to the hypoxia of high altitudes, addressing the response of lowlanders to sudden and sustained exposure, as well as that of those living permanently at high elevations. Examines adaptation and maladaptation, acute and chronic high-altitude illnesses, and the challenges faced by lowland dwellers with preexisting medical conditions who venture to high altitude!
