Altitude Sickness Questions

Altitude sickness, known scientifically as acute mountain sickness (AMS), occurs when individuals ascend to high altitudes too quickly. Breckenridge, situated at an impressive elevation of around 9,600 feet (2,926 meters) above sea level, stands proudly among the United States’ highest towns. At this elevated height, the air becomes thinner, causing a decrease in oxygen levels. This reduction poses a challenge for our bodies to adapt to the changed conditions.

It is estimated that approximately half of the visitors coming from sea level and traveling to high-altitude destinations may experience symptoms of altitude sickness. These symptoms can vary from mild to severe and may include:

  • Headache
  • Fatigue and weakness
  • Dizziness and lightheadedness
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Shortness of breath
  • Loss of appetite
  • Trouble sleeping or restless nights
  • Rapid heartbeat

Oxygen therapy increases the amount of oxygen your body receives, helping to alleviate symptoms of altitude sickness such as headaches, shortness of breath, nausea, and fatigue. It can also enhance your energy levels and overall wellness. Learn more about altitude sickness.
