Altitude sickness, also known as AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness), is a pathological effect of high altitude on humans, caused by acute exposure to low partial pressure of oxygen at high altitudes.
Although minor symptoms such as breathlessness may occur at altitudes of 1,500 meters (5,000 ft), AMS commonly occurs above 2,400 meters (8,000 ft). It presents as a collection of non specific symptoms, acquired at high altitude or in low air pressure, resembling a case of "flu, carbon monoxide poisoning, or a hangover". It is hard to determine who will be affected by altitude sickness, as there are no specific factors that correlate with a susceptibility to altitude sickness.
