The Mountain Sickness Scorer is a simple app which will take you through a questionnaire to determine how likely it is that you are suffering from acute mountain sickness. Acute mountain sickness is a common illness which can affect climbers or trekkers when they ascend rapidly to altitudes above 2500 meters. The symptoms range from mild symptoms which improve if no further ascent up the mountain is made to severe symptoms which can be fatal. Acute mountain sickness is completely preventable if you allow enough time to ascend. Current guidelines advise ascending 300-600 meters/day above 3000 meters with a rest day every 3 days when you do not gain any altitude.
Simply answer the five questions and if you score more than three points, you could be suffering from acute mountain sickness. Since the symptoms for acute mountain sickness are quite vague, it is difficult to establish the diagnosis for certain and you should consult a doctor for advice.
Mountaineering, particularly at high altitude, is inherently dangerous. Although this app can help individuals decide if they have acute mountain sickness, the app is no substitute for high mountain experience or professional medical advice. The practice of medicine is a complex process that involves the synthesis of information from a multiplicity of sources. The information contained in this application delivers similar information to that of a textbook or other health resource but it should not be used in place of the advice of your physician or other qualified health care provider. A slow and steady ascent profile is recommended and we accept no liability for any decision based upon the app. If there is any doubt about an individual or group, rapid descent is advised.
