Ams Info

Causes of Altitude Mountain Sickness:

  • Altitude mountain sickness is caused by reduced of air pressure with lower oxygen levels at high altitude.
  • The faster you climb to a high elevation, more likely you will get altitude or acute mountain sickness (AMS).

Symptoms:

  • Difficulty in sleeps.
  • Dizziness or light-headed.
  • Fatigue.
  • Headache.
  • Loss of appetite.
  • Nausea or vomiting.
  • Rapid pulse (heart rate).
  • Shortness of breath with exertion.

 Treatment:

  • Altitude mountain sickness is easier to treat in the early stage.
  • The main treatment for all forms of mountain sickness is to go down (descend) towards lower altitude as fast you can with support of our guide and staff.
  • Extra oxygen should be given, if available.
  • People with severe altitude mountain sickness should be admitted to a hospital or evacuated by any means of transportation the fastest is by Helicopter.
  • Remarkable Adventure Trek suggests you Polyacrylamide (Diamox) because this medicine helps you to feel better if you are trekking in high altitude areas.
  • It also helps you to reduce mild symptoms. This medicine works best when you take it before you start gaining much higher altitude. Beside our advice please consol with your doctor.

 While climbing higher elevation:

  • Drink plenty of fluids (water-plain black tea-lemon-tea or nutritional value drinks).
  • Avoid alcohol
  • Eat a lot of garlic’s (this is local way fighting altitude).
