AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness) is an altitude-related illness that occurs as a direct result of hypoxia. To date there is no consistent diagnostic measurement tool, leaving AMS as a subjectively-measured illness. An exploratory retrospective analysis was completed to determine the predictability of several physiologic and genetic parameters on AMS.
