What is altitude sickness? What is the indication of altitude sickness?
Indications of altitude sickness: Tibet is defined as the high altitude area, where the oxygen availability is 20% lower than sea level. It is usual that most people will experience symptoms at different levels at that high elevation. Symptoms include headache, nausea, dizziness, fatigue, shortness of breath, loss of appetite and nosebleed. Altitude sickness is a kind of natural phenomenon of human body in adapting for climate changes, so it’s unnecessary to be excessively anxious, in order not to aggravate the symptoms. Visitors should be optimistic and healthy psychologically, as excessive anxiety and lack of sleep can both lead to the aggravation of altitude sickness. The symptoms will usually decrease in severity gradually during the acclimatization. Severe symptoms can be cured by appropriate treatment as taking in oxygen, anodyne, tranquillizer, and so on. Before going to Tibet, you can take some anti-AMS medicine, like the orpine and table-medicine ,to take precautions against potential sickness. On arriving at Tibet, it’s recommended to drink more water, take sufficient rest and eat some fruit. Acute activity is harmfu l for your health. The optimal psychology is to take altitude sickness as a challenging experience!
