Preface by Professor John West:
“It is a pleasure to contribute a preface to this compilation of articles on altitude medicine published by the Birmingham Medical Research Expeditionary Society (BMRES). Of course I have been aware of articles published by this group for a number of years, but even so I was astonished to see the extent of the full collection. There must be few groups that have been so productive over a period of nearly 40 years. The variety of the research projects is impressive. I can think of few academic groups that have had the tenacity to contribute continuously to altitude medical research over such a long period. It is all the more impressive that this large body of work has been created by a relatively small group at a medical school. Expeditions to high altitude, including those few that have research as their principal objective, have generally become somewhat commercial with large amounts of funding and a high public profile that is needed to generate the necessary support. It is much to the credit of the BMRES that they have been able to produce such a large body of valuable research without a distasteful money-raising campaign. I salute the BMRES for their outstanding contributions over a period of 40 years, and I am grateful to them for the enterprise in bringing this collection of articles together in this fine book.”
