  • 7. What?  
  • 8. Unconference   From  Wikipedia,  the  free  encyclopedia   facilitated,  par-cipant-­‐ An  unconference  is  a   driven  conference  centered   around  a  theme  or  purpose.  The   term  "unconference"  has  been  applied,  or  self-­‐applied,  to  a   wide  range  of  gatherings  that  try  to  avoid  one  or  more   aspects  of  a  convenGonal  conference,  such  as  high  fees  and   sponsored  presentaGons.  For  example,  in  2006,  CNNMoney   applied  the  term  to  diverse  events  including  BarCamp,   Bloggercon,  and  Mashup  Camp.[1]  The  term  is  primarily  used   in  the  geek  community.

  • 141. High Altitude Medicine Matthew J. Renaud, MD, CCFP
  • 142. High Altitude Medicine
  • 143. Definitions ๏  High altitude:   4950 to 11500 feet (1500-3500 m)   Increased ventilation, decreased exercise tolerance ๏  Very high altitude:   11500 to18050 feet (3500-5500 m)   PaO2 < 60mm Hg, SaO2 < 90% ๏  Extreme altitude:   >18050 feet (> 5500 m)   Hypoxia, hypercarbia   Cannot acclimate
  • 144. High Altitude Illness ๏  Acute Mountain Sickness ๏  High Altitude Pulmonary Edema ๏  High Altitude Cerebral Edema
  • 145. Acute Mountain Sickness ๏  Common with rapid ascent above 8000 feet (2400m)   Can occur at lower altitudes 4000-6000 feet (1200 – 1800m)   Incidence ~ 50% at 14000 feet (4300m)   Onset 8-96 hours after reaching altitude ๏  Symptoms   Headache   Bitemporal of occipital, throbbing   Worse with valsalva, bending over   And 1 or more of:   Anorexia/nausea/vomiting   Sleep disturbance   Fatigue   Dizziness
  • 146. High Altitude Cerebral Edema ๏  Progression of AMS   Lethargy   Confusion, can progress to coma   Ataxia   Abnormal tandem gait, finger to nose diagnostic   Life threatening ๏  Onset hours to days ๏  White matter edema on MRI ๏  Descent mandatory
  • 147. High Altitude Cerebral Edema
  • 148. High Altitude Pulmonary Edema ๏  May occur alone or with AMS/HACE ๏  Dyspnea disproportionate to exertion, progressing to at rest   Noncardiogenic pulmonary edema   Exaggerated hypoxic vasoconstriction, capillary leak   Diagnosis based on dyspnea unrelieved with rest   May be progressive, fatal   Descent mandatory
  • 149. Diagnosis of HAPE ๏  Symptoms (>=2) ๏  Signs (>=2)   Dyspnea at rest   Crackles or wheezing   Cough   Cyanosis   Decreased exercise   Tachypnea tolerance   Tachycardia   Chest tightness/ congestion
  • 150. High Altitude Pulmonary Edema
  • 151. Why Does HAPE Occur? •  Hypothesis 1: Pulmonary endothelium barrier fragility •  Pulmonary endothelium barrier susceptible to: •  Mechanical stress    Stretching of the endothelium  gaps  passage of proteins and red blood cells •  Inflammation    Mediators release   permeability  gaps  passage of proteins, red blood cells and inflammatory mediators •  Questions: 1. Inflammation = 1st culprit? 2. High pressure alone enough to result in extra vascular leak?
  • 152. Inflammation in HAPE? •  Schoene et al., 1986, 1998 –  Leukotrienes (marker of inflammation) very high in BAL in subjects acutely ill with HAPE •  But inflammation present at the start or as a result of HAPE ? •  Swenson et al., 2002 –  RBC and proteins present in BAL in people at onset of HAPE –  But no inflammatory markers present ๏   Inflammation not the causative factor
  • 153. Hypoxic Pulmonary Vasoconstriction ๏  The Stress Failure Theory (West et Mathieu- Costello, 1998, 1999) Alveolar hypoxia Hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction (uneven)  capillary pressure (some capillaries)  VA/Q heterogeneity Damage to capillary wall (stress failure) Exposed basement membrane EDEMA Inflammatory mediators
  • 154. Circular break of the epithelium Full break of the blood-gas barrier Costello et al., 1992 Red cell moving out of the capillary lumen (c) into an alveolus (a)
  • 155. Exercise Induced Hypoxemia EXERCISE +/- Alveolar hypoxia Hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction (uneven)  capillary pressure (some capillaries)  VA/Q heterogeneity Damage to capillary wall (stress failure) EDEMA Exposed basement membrane Inflammatory mediators O2 HYPOXEMIA ! in about ½ endurance athletes (Powers et al., 1988)
  • 156. Pulmonary Barrier Integrity in Athletes •  Hopkins et al., 1997 –  BAL in 6 athletes after a 7min exercise at maximal intensity –  Post exercise: •  RBC •  Total protein •  Albumin •  Leukotrienes B4 •  Hopkins et al., 1998 –  1h at 70% VO2max  no signs of alteration   Impairment of the integrity of blood-gas barrier only at extreme level of exercise in elite athletes
  • 157. Why Does HAPE Occur? ๏  Hypothesis 2: Pertubation of alveolar fluid clearance   Role of fluid in extravascular space depends on: –  Its accumulation –  Efficiency of its rate of clearance •  Hypoxia   Na,K-ATPase activity (Dada et al., 2003)
  • 158. Treatment ๏  DESCENT ๏  Oxygen 4 L/min ๏  Strict bedrest if descent not possible ๏  Nifedipine ๏  Nitric oxide ๏  Dexamethasone ๏  Hyperbaric chamber Gamow Bag
