Abstract : Canada experienced a serious case of altitude DCS in Jan 1998 and the author was tasked to review the current high altitude training profiles being conducted by the Canadian Forces (CF) to determine their safety, effectiveness, and to recommend any changes that were deemed necessary. This paper is based on that report (dated 07 July 1999) and focuses on the process that was used to answer these questions.
