Share Strategies to Limit Altitude Sickness
Winter will raise questions about PREVENTING altitude illness.
Ski trips and mountain treks can be ruined when thin air causes headache, nausea, fatigue, etc. Altitude illness can rarely lead to cerebral or pulmonary edema...or even death.
Pharmacists can help. Trained pharmacists in CA can now furnish travel meds, including meds for altitude illness in some cases. Other states may follow suit.
