121 Possible Causes for High-Altitude Disorder

  • Altitude Sickness

    Altitude sickness is a group of disorders resulting from exposure to high altitudes, usually those over 2500 meters/8200 feet.[symptoma.com] Altitude sickness is a disorder caused by being at high altitude, where oxygen levels are low, without gradually getting used to the increase in altitude.[medicalnewstoday.com] Patients with asthma, hypertension, atrial arrhythmia, and seizure disorders that are well controlled at low altitude generally do well at high altitude.[wwwnc.cdc.gov]

  • Acetazolamide

    As a result, acetazolamide hastens acclimatization and helps prevent high altitude disorders.[clinicaltrials.gov] Theophylline and acetazolamide reduce sleep-disordered breathing at high altitude. Eur Respir J 2004 ; 23 : 47 -52. Greene MK, Kerr AM, McIntosh IB, Prescott RJ.[bmj.com] Its mechanism is via inhibition of the carbonic anhydrase enzyme which counteracts the respiratory alkalosis which occurs during ascent to altitude.[clinicaltrials.gov]

  • Carbonic Anhydrase Inhibitor

    […] acetazolamide alone is still used in therapeutics not as diuretic, but for particular therapeutic uses: chronic glaucoma, because it decreases the secretion of the aqueous humor high-altitude[pharmacorama.com] , infections and tumors are caused by high altitude (1-4).[orientjchem.org] disorders, because it decreases the formation of cerebrospinal fluid at the level of choroid plexus and improves pulmonary ventilation by lowering the plasma pH and increase[pharmacorama.com]

  • Pulmonary Hemorrhage

    It is caused by trauma, Goodpastrue's syndrome, bleeding disorders, high altitude, and mitral stenosis. Blood fills the bronchi and eventually the alveoli.[med-ed.virginia.edu]
