Abstract : 

There are a growing number of people who are climbing high mountains, with the risk that this sport involves. Therefore it is very important to be aware of the dangers and shortfalls that this practice can entail in order to prevent them and be able to treat them. Preparing one’s first aid kit for preventative, palliative and therapeutic purposes is essential. We need to include multivitamin and mineral dietary supplements and drugs to treat and prevent acute mountain sickness, in particular Acetazolamide.
