In 2018 Steve House and Scott Johnston joined two of the world’s preeminent high-altitude medicine specialists, Dr. Robert Roach and Dr. Peter Hackett, to present an all-day seminar on all aspects of preparing military operations personnel to go to high altitudes. Steve and Scott presented the training methodologies you are all familiar with. Dr. Hackett presented on altitude illness. This video is Dr. Hackett’s lecture, which is approximately 1 hour in duration.

Keep in mind that Dr. Hackett is presenting to an international group comprised of military field paramedics, training (coaching) personnel, and senior military officers. However, the basic science of acclimatization and diagnosis and treatment of altitude illness is universal.
