Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) is a condition that happens if individuals ascend to high altitudes in a rapid manner, where the air pressure and oxygen levels are lower. Commonly experienced in mountainous regions, AMS can result in symptoms namely headache, nausea, fatigue, and dizziness. The body needs time to acclimate to the lower oxygen levels particularly at higher elevations, and ascending too quickly can hinder this adjustment process, causing AMS. Understanding the causes, symptoms, and preventive measures of AMS is critical for individuals planning to venture into high altitude areas
