    Abstract: Almost one mountain trekker or climber out of two develops several symptoms of high altitude illness after a rapid ascent (>300�m/day) to an altitude above 4000�m. Individual susceptibility is the most important determinant for the occurrence of high altitude pulmonary oedema...

    Altitudes at which athletes compete or train do usually not exceed 2000--2500 m. At these moderate altitudes acute mountain sickness (AMS) is mild, transient and affects at the most 25% of a tourist population at risk. Unpublished data included in this review paper demonstrate that more intense...

    Thinner air at altitude means there is less air resistance making extraordinary things possible. It also means less oxygen and this has physiological and various other effects on the body. Altitude is nominally classified as sea level (0 to 500 m), low (>500 to 2000 m), moderate (>2000 to 3000...

    The objective of this study was to evaluate the mechanisms of colchicine action in pulmonary fibrosis. The study included 10 patients with pulmonary fibrosis (idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis 5, asbestosis 4, and scleroderma 1) who had been admitted to Bellevue Hospital Center, a tertiary care...
