_Over the last decade the science and medicine of high altitude and hypoxia adaptation has seen great advances. High Altitude: Human Adaptation to Hypoxia addresses the challenges in dealing with the changes in human physiology and the particular medical conditions that arise from exposure to high altitude. In-depth and comprehensive chapters cover both the basic science and the clinical consequences of exposure to high altitude. Genetic, cellular, organ and whole body system responses to high altitudes are covered and chapters discuss these effects on a wide range of diseases. Expert authors provide insight into the care of patients with pre-existing medical conditions that fail in some cases to adapt as well as offer insights into how high altitude research can help critically ill patients. High Altitude: Human Adaptation to Hypoxia is an important new volume that offers a window into greater understanding and more successful treatment of hypoxic human diseases.

Erik R. Swenson, MD is a professor in the division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at the University of Washington. His research interests include adaptation and maladaptation in animals and humans to high altitude hypoxia: renal and pulmonary responses with emphasis on acute mountain sickness and high altitude pulmonary edema. Peter Bartsch, MD has participated in many field studies in the Alps, investigating the physiology, prevention and treatment of acute high altitude illnesses. From 1984 to 1989, he ran high altitude research projects at the Inselspital Bern, in co-operation with Oswald Oelz, and in 1990, he led the Exercise Physiology Laboratory at the Swiss School of Sports. In 1991, he was appointed Professor of Sports Medicine at the University of Heidelberg where he is currently the head of the Division of Sports Medicine. Peter Bartsch
