BCMC & VIMFF present an evening with climbing legend Jim Donini, plus a screening of On The Verge, climbing in the backcountry of Powell River, BC.

Healthy male subjects wanted for a study of genetics and susceptibility to Acute Mountain Sickness
Participation involves up to an 8 hour exposure to simulated altitude in a hypoxia (low oxygen) chamber on campus. The conditions will be the equivalent to 4500 meters altitude ( like summiting Mt Rainier ).
A sample cheek cells will be taken (for DNA) and a number of physiological measures made, including heart rate, blood pressure, blood flow, exhaled nitric oxide, and lung diffusion capacity. We expect about ½ of subjects will develop headaches and other symptoms of acute mountain sickness while in the chamber.

Interested? Contact any member of the study team for more details.
