2016 Survey

We have provided some preliminary results from the 2016 Altitude Acclimatization Survey for John Muir Trail Hikers.

A few notes about this report of the data:
  • This report represents early results and includes demographic data as well as hike, medication and symptom data.
  • The data has not been completely scrubbed of spurious responses.
  • The report does not include any tests of statistical significance.

Researchers at UCLA are looking for hikers to participate in a study about altitude sickness and its connection to the heart. They believe altitude sickness may be due, in part, to an unusual connection between the right and left upper chambers of the heart called a patent foramen ovale (PFO).
