  18. 18. El soroche es un estado de malestar que puede aparecer cuando estamos a más de 3000 metros de altura, producido por la menor cantidad de oxígeno en el aire. <br />En algunas personas se manifiesta como fatiga y una sensación de falta de aire, y en otras no llega a manifestarse. <br />Pero hay casos en que se torna severo, produciendo fuertes dolores de cabeza y vómitos.<br />No agitarse y comer liviano Para evitarlo es recomendable aclimatarse a la altura, no agitarse ni esforzarse los primeros días y comer liviano. <br />El remedio local más efectivo es mascar hojas de coca.<br />http://www.lanacion.com.ar/nota.asp?nota_id=203311<br />
