Into Thin Air (10:00 AM - 11:00 AM)

Presented by Robert Achtel M.D.

Description: Loss of Cerebral (BRAIN) function due to hypoxia (REDUCED BLOOD OXYGEN) - Our ability to think declines rapidly when insufficient oxygen is available to the brain. Thinner air at altitude takes it's toll upon our ability to think as we pass through  9,000 feet. By 14000 feet we have the brain power of a 10 year old. Carbon Monoxide binds with our red blood cells (RBC'S) taking the place of oxygen. The RBC'S arrive in the brain but have little oxygen to deliver. Hypoxia, Carbon Monoxide Poisoning, Blood Oxygen Monitoring, Carbon Monoxide Detection, Oxygen Systems, will be reviewed.
