Xtreme Everest

Xtreme-Everest - a collaboration between Duke University USA, University of Southampton and University College London

One in five of us ends up in an intensive care unit. Two fifths of those admitted will sadly die. And a major cause is a lack of oxygen when it is most needed. This unique research exploits the oxygen-thin air at high altitudes to provide critical insights into how intensive care patients might be helped in the future. It could save hundreds of thousands of lives of people with a range of diseases including cancer, diabetes, heart and lung disease, cystic fibrosis and congenital heart disease.
