High Altitude Syndromes

High altitude syndromes of primary concern are those attributed directly to the hypoxia: acute hypoxia; acute mountain sickness; pulmonary edema; cerebral edema; retinopathy; peripheral edema; sleeping problems; and a group of neurologic syndromes. The other syndromes, not necessarily related to hypoxia, include thromboembolic events (which may be attributable to dehydration, prolonged incapacitation, polycythemia, and cold), high altitude pharyngitis and bronchitis, and ultraviolet keratitis.
