Articles Resulting from the American Medical Research Expedition to Everest. Only two scientific articles have so far (February 1983) been published. They are:

West, J.B. “Man at Extreme Altitude.” Journal of Applied Physiology, 52: 1393-1399, 1982.

West, J.B. “American Medical Research Expedition to Everest, 1981.” The Physiologist, 25: 36-38, 1982.

Many articles are in the process of publication and the book High Altitude and Men edited by J.B. West and S. Lahiri should be published late this year or early next. An update will appear in the American Alpine Journal, 1984.

John B. West, M.D.
