AMS is a common problem among adolescents. There are increasing numbers of adolescents traveling to high altitudes, and there appears to be a lack of information about the prevalence of AMS in this age group. Motivated adolescents seemed capable of self-monitoring for AMS using the Lake Louise questionnaire. Combined with an appropriate ascent profile and support, we feel this approach may contribute to safety in the mountains and merits further study.
