Throughout A Step-By-Step Manual To Mountaineering & Trekking Around The World, I have mentioned several additional resources in the form of documents and instructional videos that will help you as you prepare for your high altitude adventure. You can find all of those additional resources here, conveniently and easily available for you to download and use.
LAKE LOUISE SCORE
This scoring system, referred to in Chapter 10, is used for the diagnosis of Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS). If you haven’t already, make sure you read carefully through the AMS section in Chapter 10 detailing the symptoms, treatment and preventative measures for AMS, as well as the guidelines on how and when Diamox should be taken.
FOAM ROLLING (SMR) VIDEOS
In the section titled “Tips and Guidance on Correct Biomechanical Movement to Prevent Pain and Injuries” in Chapter 5, I refer to the use of a foam roller or a tennis ball to massage and help alleviate tightness in specific muscle groups. You will find the instructional videos for each muscle group here.
