What do Mount Everest and an intensive care ward have in common? Sundeep Dhillon reveals what the medical profession can learn about the human body by studying the effects of extremely high altitudes.

Sundeep studied Medicine at the University of Oxford and served as a General Practitioner with British Airborne Forces for 20 years with multiple short-notice deployments to austere environments. He has visited and worked in over 70 countries on every continent, and in every environment from the deserts of Antarctica and the Sahara, via the jungles of Africa, Central America and Asia to the high mountain ranges of the world.
