Caudwell Xtreme Everest: Science on the Edge

Mar 25 2010 60 mins   2
In May 2007, a group of scientists went to the summit of Mount Everest to study the effects of high altitude on the human body, with the ultimate aim of increasing our understanding of critically ill patients. The expedition’s Medical Officer, Dr Denny Levett, will be joining us to discuss the project, their findings, and the challenges encountered at 29,000 feet.

This event took place on the 11th March 2010 at Science Oxford Live.
