PBS Teachers: Deadly Ascent

Learn what the body goes through at high altitudes. Scroll over the various body parts, find out what can go wrong in freezing temperatures on high mountains, the symptoms, and what is needed to take care of the problem. This interactive is part of a larger NOVA site which follows a team of medical doctors and climbers on Denali who test the body’s response to cold.
