Frostbite treatment clinics?

Dear all,

A friend of mine has summited Denali (solo). On the way down a member from another team fell down and broke his leg. He helped them get down, but in the process they ended up spending a night on Denali in horrific weather. Anyway, to make a long story short, he has what looks like serious frostbite on his hands, toes, and nose.

Can anybody here recommend a frostbite treatment clinic in Europe ...

Extra functionality of a PLB?? (student research)

Good morning,

I’m looking for a few opinions here to help with research for a project I’m currently doing. I am an industrial Design student from Loughborough University- the idea for the project is to make a Personal Locator beacon which can self-activate when the user becomes incapable of activating it themselves.

Although I am a keen climber and mountaineer, I haven’t ever been in a situation which I feel would warrant carrying a PLB, ...

Ear ringing after MRI noise

On October 5, 2013 I had an MRI of my right wrist and left hand for joint pain. No abnormality was noted and the pain is almost gone but I was exposed to the loud noise of the MRI machine for 1.5 hours. Headphones were given to me but these did not seem to lower the noise at all. I noted ringing in my ears (Tinnitus) as soon as I got out of the machine. ...

Looking for Female Research Survey Participants

Looking For Female Participants For a Research Survey on Pregnancy,
Exercise and High Altitude Exposure


Very little is known about the safety of travel and exercise at high altitude during
pregnancy. Furthermore, although exercise is considered safe during pregnancy some
activities, such as downhill skiing, are discouraged and many women modify their
exercise regimes during pregnancy.

We are conducting a research project to study what kind of exercise women participate
in during pregnancy and whether ...

Bunion surgery

I have a bunion that is becoming quite painful when I hike downhill. Painful enough to make me whimper out loud. Painful enough that I am avoiding hikes with much elevation gain. I am considering surgery. Sigh. Has anyone had bunion surgery? If so, where you happy with the outcome?

High Altitude Pulmonary Edema - research participants needed

I have a new research study just starting in the fall and I need subjects aged 19-45 who have had HAPE diagnosed by a physician. At this point I am just recruiting the HAPE-suceptible (the people who have been to altitude without getting sick are easy to find).

I will post the official flyer (approved by our IRB) below.

If you are interested and think you fit the bill as a subjects you can contact ...

Peroneal Tendonitis

I have peroneal tendonitis in my left foot. The pain is at the base of the fifth metatarsal which basically is about midway under the foot towards the outside. This has plagued me for years. One podiatrist talked me into a Topaz surgery in 2011. It lasted about a year and a half before the same symptoms returned. This is an everyday nuisance that just won't go away. It is very site specific in that ...
