Exploring Mountain Medicine and Physiology
I am honoured to be asked to give this talk to the Hypoxia Symposium. I have been fortunate to have attended all but one of the 15 symposia up to now including the first one in 1979. I feel inadequate to follow the illustrious names of Houston, Rahn, Pugh, Grover, Hultgren, Reeves, Severinghaus and West. I decided I should, like last time’s Honoree, talk about my own experience of research in high altitude medicine and physiology. There will be some overlap with John West’s talk of last time since we have been on two major expeditions together but that is a consequence of choosing us one after the other#
