Leading authorities on high-altitude physiology contribute to this work, which is divided into three sections: Man at Extreme Altitude; Sleep and Restoration at High Altitude; and Physiology of Permanent Residents of High Altitude. Based on a symposium on physiology at high altitude sponsored by the American Physiological Society, the volume includes several chapters on the achievements of the 1981 American Medical Research Expedition to Mt. Everest, where the first physiological measurements at altitudes above 8,000 meters were recorded. With growing interest in the study of human performance in these conditions, this text marks a lasting achievement in high-altitude physiology.
