Caudwell Xtreme Everest: An Overview

Caudwell Xtreme Everest: An Overview
Caudwell Xtreme Everest: An Overview
The Caudwell Xtreme Everest (CXE) expedition in the spring of 2007 systematically studied 222 healthy volunteers as they ascended from sea level to Everest Base Camp (5300 m). A subgroup of climbing investigators ascended higher on Everest and obtained physiological measurements up to an altitude of 8400 m. The aim of the study was to explore inter-individual variation in response to environmental hypobaric hypoxia in order to understand better the pathophysiology of critically ill patients and other patients in whom hypoxaemia and cellular hypoxia are prevalent. This paper describes the aims, study characteristics, organization and management of the CXE expedition.

Abstract

The Caudwell Xtreme Everest (CXE) expedition in the spring of 2007 systematically studied 222 healthy volunteers as they ascended from sea level to Everest Base Camp (5300 m). A subgroup of climbing investigators ascended higher on Everest and obtained physiological measurements up to an altitude of 8400 m. The aim of the study was to explore inter-individual variation in response to environmental hypobaric hypoxia in order to understand better the pathophysiology of critically ill patients and other patients in whom hypoxaemia and cellular hypoxia are prevalent. This paper describes the aims, study characteristics, organization and management of the CXE expedition.
