Studies were conducted to evaluate the usefulness of acetazolamide in aiding accommodation to altitude. Three experimental conditions were included in the studies five men decompressed to a pressure altitude of 14,000 ft. for 6 hours six men decompressed to 16,000 ft. for 4 hours and three men decompressed to 14,000 ft. for 5 days. Each subject participated in two runs, one with administration of the drug and the other in placebo, using the usual double blind procedure.
