Editorial Reviews

Review

"(This book) has been rigorously updated with several new additions, including sections on women and children at high altitude, neurological disorders, athletic training to prepare for altitude and more. All of which will undoubtedly help doctors stay abreasy of this continually changing area of specialism."


The Geographical Magazine

"With this edition, High Altitude Medicine and Physiology retains its place as the leading scholarly text on the subject."


Ken Zafren, Wilderness and Environmenal Medicine

Format: Hardcover
This book was very good. More for medical or physiologist, but could be interesting for anyone. This is the source for high altitude physiology.

Format: Hardcover
This book contains an list of abbreviations that lacks a few entries, but doesn't have a glossary. It is therefore an excellent supplement to "Going Higher: Oxygen Man and Mountains," since it contains some medical terms that are explained in "Going Higher," along with some that aren't. This is understandable since "High Altitude Medecine..." is designed for medical students. Nonetheless once past the medical terminology, it can be grasped by a any bright literate person. Best of all it is half the price of any comparable book.

If looking for a book that examines the short and long term physiological adaptations to altitude or hypoxia, this one is great. It covers an array of systemic responses, including cardiovascular, pulmonary, renal, hematological, and CNS. It also looks at the physiology of high altitude natives, and the differences in their response to increases in altitude compared to equally acclimatized low-landers. I love it!

Format: Hardcover
I required this book of an undergraduate High Altitude and Medicine and Physiology course. The copy I received was used and looked brand new but had i moderate odor to it when i took it out of the packaging. After airing it out for a day or two the odor dispersed. All and all great condition for a fair price. the content of the book covers the history of HA physiology and the bodies reaction to hypoxia. West does a good job of writing clear chapters of manageable lengths.
