A look back and 2,932 feet up

Advancing the Science began in 2012 to document a six-member Mayo Clinic research team on their month-long expedition to climb Mount Everest. The team monitored nine climbers from base camp to the summit, examining the effect of extreme altitude, which puts the climbers in the same conditions experienced by people with heart disease, obesity, or advanced age. Research based on data gathered during the expedition provided new insights into sleep physiology, muscle loss at altitude, lung fluid regulation, and remote cardiac monitoring
