Affections pulmonaires et attitude [High altitude and preexisting lung diseases].
Revue Médicale Suisse
Today, a growing number of people, some of them suffering from lung diseases, travel to high altitude resorts. It is sometimes not easy for the general practitioner to adequately counsel these patients. Based on our knowledge of physiopathology and clinical studies, the present paper addresses the effects of high altitude in patients with preexisting lung diseases and provides recommendations in order to optimize the sojourn at high altitude.
