Health Effects of High Altitude -
At the high altitude of Colorado Mountains everyone is affected to some degree. As you go to the higher altitudes, the barometric pressure decreases, the air is thinner and less oxygen is available. At elevations of 8,000 plus feet many symptoms may occur including: breathing faster and more deeply which results in shortness of breath and exertion, headache, nausea, trouble sleeping and unusual tiredness (this is more commonly referred to as AMS or acute mountain sickness). These symptoms should go away in a day or two. If symptoms persist or worsen a physician should be consulted. Even a short visit to the doctor can save the rest of your trip.
A more serious condition is called HAPE or high altitude pulmonary edema, recognized by a wet cough, increasing shortness of breath and a feeling of fluid building up in the lungs. Other signs to watch out for are disorientation and confusion. If any of these symptoms occur, seek medical attention immediately. HAPE is easy to treat but left untreated can be life threatening.
