Xtreme-Everest Medical Research Charity
Xtreme Everest is a not for profit organisation supported by a number of sponsors. It costs on average £3,000 a day to care for a critically ill patient in intensive care in the UK. With costs this high, it is hard for the individual NHS organisations to find additional money to support research into improving care. Therefore, the Xtreme Everest research team spend a significant amount of time seeking funding support from companies, organisations and individuals to carry out research.
Xtreme Everest spends this money on a variety of research tasks and research support including:
- sample processing and storage
- purchasing, or leasing, and maintenance of equipment
- and analysis of data
Xtreme Everest aims to improve outcomes for people who become critically ill. Currently, not only do 20% of people admitted to intensive care in the UK each year die, but a significant number of those that survive never regain the same quality of life they had before. We work with doctors, nurses and members of the public to try to find a way to lower this statistic. Please help us make a difference today.
To date, Xtreme Everest have carried out 12 research studies: 10 at altitude and 2 in chambers and sea level testing prior to the Caudwell Xtreme Everest expedition which took place in 2007.
