Altitude and High-altitude pulmonary edema (HAPE).

Altitude sickness can manifest as acute mountain sickness, HACE (High Altitude Cerebral Edema) or HAPE (High Altitude Pulmonary Edema). We explain the normal physiological processes, each condition and how to treat them.http://escapemedic.com/2018/01/07/acute-mountain-sickness/

Altitude sickness can manifest as acute mountain sickness, HACE (High Altitude Cerebral Edema) or HAPE (High Altitude Pulmonary Edema). We explain the normal physiological processes, each condition and how to treat them.

At higher altitudes, the air is thinner, there is less available oxygen and it becomes more difficult to breathe. There are serious risks involved with high-altitude hiking, including altitude sickness, acute mountain syndrome and pulmonary edema, all of which can result in death. Before you go on a high-altitude hike, you need to train your body...

Children with DS often have medical problems such as chronic pulmonary hypertension, frequent infections, and pulmonary vascular overperfusion and injury from existing or previous cardiac defects. These problems all may be viewed as risk factors for HAPE (high-altitude pulmonary edema) and thus result in the rapid development of HAPE at low altitudes. Care should be taken when traveling to even moderate altitudes with children with DS.
