Xtreme Everest aims to improve outcomes for people who become critically ill. Currently, not only do 20% of people admitted to intensive care in the UK each year die, but a significant number of those that survive never regain the same quality of life they had before. We work with doctors, nurses and members of the public to try to find a way to lower this statistic. Please help us make a difference today.

To date, Xtreme Everest have carried out 12 research studies: 10 at altitude and 2 in chambers and sea level testing prior to the Caudwell Xtreme Everest expedition which took place in 2007.

  • Cho Oyu (2005)
  • Cho Oyu (2006)
  • Sea-Level Testing (2007)
  • Caudwell Xtreme Everest (2007)
  • Smiths Medical Young Everest Study (2007)
  • Caudwell Xtreme Everest (2009)
  • Xtreme Alps (2010)
  • Bedford School (2012)
  • Simulated Altitude Study (2012)
  • Epigenetics Chamber Study (2012)
  • Xtreme Everest 2 (2013)
  • Young Everest Study 2 (2013)
  • Xtreme Everest 10th Anniversary (2017)

Please GIVE what you can to help us continue improving outcomes for our patients.
