Altitude sickness 'two illnesses'

2 posts in this topic

Altitude sickness is two illnesses, according to Edinburgh scientists.

The condition, triggered by falling oxygen levels, causes mild sickness, headaches and life-threatening problems affecting the heart, lungs and brain.

Researchers at Edinburgh University said they had shown it is actually "at least two separate syndromes".
