High altitude-we all enjoy that tremendous loss of appetite, nausea, disturbed sleep and view from the summit, but there are risks in a general feeling of malaise; symptoms tend going to high altitude, and it's important to understand the physiological effects of high headache and Diamox. Both help to reducethe severity of the symptoms, but remember, First, what is High Altitude: Altitude is defined on the following scale High (8,000 - problem. Mild AMS does not interfere with 12,000 feet ), Very High (12,000 - 18,000 normal activity but the only cure is either feet), and Extremely High (18,000+ feet).
The concentration of oxygen at sea level isabout 21% and the barometric pressure HIGH ALTITUDE PULMONARY
averages 760 mmHg. As altitude increases, EDEMA (HAPE)
the concentration remains the same but thenumber of oxygen molecules is reduced. At 12,000 feet the barometric pressure is only include shortness of breath even at rest, oxygenate the body, you must breathe faster.

Other Medications for Altitude Illnesses: PREVENTION AND TREATMENT
Ibuprofen is effective at relieving altitude 1) If possible, don't fly or drive to high artery pressure and relieves HAPE.

There are a lot of things that occur in the unit that do not involve a rescue mission.
From cutting grass at the rescue cache to helping produce the unit survival kit. The board has lots of extra unit projects that they would like the membership to get involved in. These include editing the unit's outdoor living manual (it hasn't been updated since party is the first Wednesday of the month training manual for the unit.
