Home  List of Disease  Acute mountain sickness

Disease Name:Acute mountain sickness
Acute mountain sickness
Alternate Names:Acute mountain sickness (AMS), altitude illness, hypobaropathy, or soroche
Virus Name:-
Treatment:Oxygen may be used for mild to reasonable AMS below 12,000 feet (3,700 m) and is commonly provided by physicians at mountain resorts. Symptoms abate in 12-36 hours without the need to descend. For more serious cases of AMS, or where rapid descent is unreasonable, a Gamow bag, a portable plastic hyperbaric chamber inflated with a foot pump, can be used to reduce the effective altitude by as much as 1,500 meters (5,000 ft). A Gamow bag is generally used only as an aid to evacuate severe AMS patients, not to treat them at altitude.
Description:Altitude sickness is a pathological result of high altitude on humans (and animals), caused by acute experience to low air pressure (usually outdoors at high altitudes). It commonly occurs above 2,400 metres (approximately 8,000 feet). Acute mountain sickness can progress to high altitude pulmonary edema (HAPE) or high altitude cerebral edema (HACE).
