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.
