On January 16th 2016, BMRES took 24 subjects to Ecuador. Our destination was the Whymper Hut at 5,000m above sea-level, last visited by the group in 1979- see the expedition archives for report and pictures. We performed further studies on exercise, sleep, and evaluation of pulmonary oedema by ultrasound. The subject group consisted of seasoned members as well as medical students, some of whom successfully climbed Chimborazo in difficult conditions.
Here are a selection of photos taken by expedition members, a full report is to follow.
Typical evening meeting, this time at the Marco Cruz huts.
