Emergency Oxygen Tanks

Emergency Oxygen Tanks

Emergency Oxygen tanks on Kilimanjaro are used as for supplementing oxygen, you must not attempt to hike higher. Although it relieves breathing difficulty and oxygen starvation, it reverses acclimatization changes.

Supplementary oxygen is routinely carried only for emergency treatment and not as an aid to climbers who wish to continue to the summit. It would be a very dangerous practice. However, if you wish to have oxygen aid to the summit our ALTOX Personal Oxygen System are used instead.

Kilimanjaro Brothers advises trekkers to be securely acclimatized before attempting higher altitudes, possibly at least by taking an extra day or two acclimatizing on Kilimanjaro to make summit success more likely and allow you to avoid the worst effects of Altitude Sickness.

Most effects of altitude sickness can be dealt with by simply descending a few hundred feet to more comfortable conditions and resting, but HACE symptoms are not so easily relieved.

Evacuation is essential, since after effects can persist for days or weeks depending on their severity. Your body produces extra red blood corpuscles at altitude to enable your blood to carry more oxygen to the brain, but this process takes a few days and is halted as soon as more oxygen becomes available.
