Overview

High Altitude Medicine & Biology is the first peer-reviewed journal focused exclusively on the latest advances in high altitude life sciences, and is the primary source of information for clinicians, physiologists, and researchers studying the effects of reduced atmospheric pressure and oxygen deprivation. The Journal delivers critical findings on the impact of high altitude on lung and heart disease, appetite and weight loss, pulmonary and cerebral edema, hypertension, dehydration, infertility, and other diseases. It covers the full spectrum of high altitude life sciences from pathology to human and animal ecology.

High Altitude Medicine & Biology coverage includes:

  • Physiology
  • Pulmonology and cardiology
  • Comparative and evolutionary biology
  • Pharmacology
  • Anthropology
