Altitude testing of the Ergostik CPET system

Altitude testing the CPET systemWednesday 13th of February saw us helping the Extreme Everest team with some last minute checks before departing for basecamp with the CPET system.

While the team were confident with the performance of the Ergostik CPET system (Cardiopulmonary Exercise system), it never hurts to check everything, the device performed without a single glitch in these last minute tests, calibrating perfectly at 1000m intervals during both the ascent and descent stages, all the way to the Everest Base camp height of 5500m (18,000 ft).

The Ergostik CPET system not only coped well with the changing pressures and temperatures for calibration but also proved it was quite happy to test in this hostile environment. also being equiped to look at high levels of O2 to deal with the ventilation studies it will be used for up the mountain.

A huge thanks to all the team at Elson Space Technologies visit their site over at http://www.elsonspace.com

Thanks also to Dr Tom Smedley and Dr Sandy Jack from the Extreme Everest team letting us join them in the hypobaric chamber. Follow the team on the Extreme Everest 2 mission by visiting their website http://www.xtreme-everest.co.uk/overview

Raising funds for Cancer Charity

As some of you may know some of the team at Love Medical have had their lives affected by Cancer over the last few years perhaps not directly but members of families Fathers, Sons brothers.. Love Medical always strives to find ways of giving something back to the people who have helped our team. It is with this in mind that Julian is taking part in the Three Deeps Challenge, together with some friends from their Dive Club they will be setting out to Scotland on the  19th of October to start the 3 Deeps Challenge. This involves 3 dives in 3 countries within 12 hours. They are raising money for both Macmillan Nurses and the Christie Hospital in Manchester. The Christie Hospital means a lot to our team as some of our family members have been treated here. Please find some time to visit the link and pledge a little to help this worthwhile cause.
