Altitude Sickness Symptoms

When you’re on a mountain such as Humphreys Peak, Fremont Peak, or Mount Baldy, oxygen and air pressure levels are lower than they are when you’re closer to sea level. That change can result in altitude sickness. You may feel:

  • Headaches
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • A dizzy or lightheaded sensation
  • Problems sleeping
  • Shortness of breath
  • Lack of appetite
  • Rising heart rate

Your age, weight, and blood pressure can affect the likelihood of developing altitude sickness. Symptoms usually appear soon after you’ve moved from a low to high altitude. The higher up you go, the more likely altitude sickness may occur. And these symptoms can stick around--mild altitude sickness can last up to 36 hours. Altitude sickness may also worsen, causing extreme fatigue and mental confusion, as well as issues with the lungs, heart, or nervous system requiring medical attention. IV fluids for mild altitude sickness offer quick symptom relief.

Avoid getting to the point where you need to go to the hospital by getting IV treatments for altitude sickness as soon as possible.

Frequently Asked Questions: IV for Altitude Sickness

1What is IV therapy?

Intravenous, or IV therapy, provides fluids via a drip IV infusion. It is the fastest way to get fluids into the body. The IV goes directly into the bloodstream. 

Prior to starting the IV, the nurse will take your medical history, discuss your current symptoms, and perform a brief exam. After seating you in a comfortable position, the IV is inserted into a sanitized section of your arm. The needle is inserted gently into your skin, where it connects with a vein. The needle is then hooked up to a drip line connected to the IV bag with your altitude sickness treatment.
