Deaths on Everest

Jeremy Windsor

Each year large numbers of mountaineers set their sights on climbing Mt Everest. Unfortunately, injuries and illnesses commonly occur and these sometimes result in death.

In 2007 I co-authored “Mortality on Mt Everest…”, a study published in the British Medical Journal, that described for the first time patterns of death on the mountain. Following the loss of a friend on the mountain in 2019, I have returned to the subject and found that the patterns I described more than a decade ago have now changed. There is a “greying” of Everest – an older population, climbing with multiple co-morbidities, are dying in a different way to those who scaled the mountain just a few decades earlier.

These new findings not only have implications for those wishing to climb Mt Everest but for all adventures to high altitude.

Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital city is uniquely inspirational, not only for its fabled loveliness, but also for its associations – past and present – with innovation, creativity, discovery and progress.

It was here chloroform was first used as an anaesthetic and the founder of penicillin was born. Dolly the sheep was cloned at the University of Edinburgh’s Roslin Institute. The first ‘bionic’ hand – a powered prosthetic with articulating fingers – was developed by a spin-out company from the city’s Princess Margaret Rose Hospital, and the fastest-selling video game of all time – Grand Theft Auto V, by Rockstar North was developed!

Edinburgh has great transport connections too; home to Scotland’s busiest airport which serves 188 destinations worldwide, rail links which run all over the UK, easy access from Scotland’s motorway network and public transport in the city itself is simple with a plentiful supply of buses, trams and taxis.

There’s plenty to do after dark with lots of unique venues to experience a full flavour of Scotland’s culture. We have partnered with Convention Edinburgh and all of our Extreme Medicine delegates will receive the Edinburgh Rewards Card with their conference badge, opening a door to special offers from a selection of bars, restaurants, shops and tour operators.

Our conference venue, Dynamic Earth is a 5 star visitor experience, inviting guests to take a journey through time to witness the story of planet Earth. Dynamic Earth offers synergy within a global health context which match our own sustainable, community minded focus.
