Abstract

Health care providers will likely encounter an increase in patient populations who seek clinical guidance on travel and outdoor recreational activities. Individuals pursuing activities that lead to higher elevations may be at risk for Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS). Providers should be familiar with AMS presentation, recognize patient risk, recommend preventative strategies, and know common treatment methods when counseling individuals who intend a controlled or rapid ascent to high altitudes.
