Apex 4

APEX 4 Bolivia 2014 is a high altitude medical research expedition to the Chacaltaya Mountain (5,300m) near La Paz, Bolivia in June 2014. The expedition is led by a motivated group of senior medical students at the University of Edinburgh.

The purpose of the expedition is to carry out scientific research to further our understanding of the severe and often unappreciated risks of high-altitude, and to translate this knowledge to the practice of critical care medicine at the bedside. The research has the potential to affect millions worldwide.
