How to Prevent Altitude Sickness

altitude sickness prevention

One of the best ways to prevent altitude sickness is to increase your elevation gradually over a few days. For many travelers on a timeline or traveling by air, this can be a challenge. Other suggestions for preventing altitude or elevation sickness include:

1. Drink plenty of fluids frequently to prevent dehydration (3-4 quarts per day).
2. Limit physical activity during your first few days of altitude exposure
3. Eat small portions of carbohydrates frequently.
4. Avoid tobacco, alcohol and depressant drugs including barbiturates, narcotics, tranquilizers and sleeping pills. These substances cause respiratory depression (the slowing down of breathing), resulting in worsening of the symptoms.
5. If you are skiing you may want to spend more time mid-mountain to allow your body more time to acclimatize.
