About Author

  • Mild headaches can be treated conservatively with paracetamol or ibuprofen.
  • Use ondansetron for vomiting.
  • Supplemental oxygen (if available) can be helpful in symptomatic relief even if saturations are normal.
  • Acetazolamide, which speeds acclimatization may help in adolescents and adults but for younger patients, it is better for prophylaxis than treatment.
  • Dexamethasone is more effective than acetazolamide at rapidly relieving the symptoms of moderate to severe illness. 
  • Patients should descend, in case of persistent or worsening symptoms despite medications
  • Dose of Dexamethasone- 0.15 mg/kg/dose every 6 hrly (max up to 4 mg per dose)
