Story

One in five of us ends up in an intensive care unit. Two fifths of those admitted will sadly die. And a major cause is a lack of oxygen when it is most needed. This unique research team exploits the oxygen-thin air at high altitudes to provide critical insights into how intensive care patients might be helped in the future. It could save hundreds of thousands of lives of people with a range of diseases including cancer, diabetes, heart and lung disease, cystic fibrosis and congenital heart disease.

Xtreme Everest is a not for profit organisation, led by doctors and scientists from UCL, University of Southampton and Duke University in the United States, conducting this innovative, cutting edge research. In order to fully exploit the data collected, Xtreme Everest needs funds - a minimum of £10 million is required between now and 2020.

Please consider making a donation to support the ongoing research to improve outcomes for critically ill patients

UCLH Charity

Charity Registration No. 229771

UCLH Charity provides support for patients, staff and medical research at UCL Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. The hospitals treat not only local residents, commuters and visitors to the area but also provide highly specialised services for patients referred from all over the UK and from abroad. The Trust has a reputation for innovation and providing patient focussed care, with ambitions to be a world class centre for clinical services, teaching and research. In the past the Charity has provided state of the art medical equipment for UCL Hospitals, invested in health initiatives for staff and funded academic medical research projects in conjunction with University College London. Current projects included a £3m joint venture with UCL Hospitals to develop a pioneering education centre, and the investment of £7m, from past legacies, in biomedical research. We are also developing a UCLH homeless healthcare service, responding to an ‘invisible’ patient group who often lack representation. Your gift is vital, to help us support this essential work into the future.
