Expedition Medicine medics study the effects of altitude

Eight members of the extreme Everest team, which includes Across the Divide and Expedition Medicine medic Dr Denny Levett, summited last week. As if this wasnt hard enough, they also had the energy to take arterial samples from each other at 8450m and carried out some further scientific studies at the south col. We are always in awe of people who are driven and brave enough to climb to these altitudes but am completely humbled by the fortitude of the extreme Everest team. Good luck and well done to them all, their support team and sherpa guides.
