Professor Mike Grocott on medical research and Mount Everest

Professor Mike Grocott could never be described as a typical medic. Amongst his varied roles, he is the Director Caudwell Xtreme Everest, and Professor of Anaesthesia and Critical Care Medicine at the University of Southampton.

In this episode, Professor Grocott was able to explain to me how he ended up on the highest peak on Earth conducting research aimed at benefiting the most critically ill patients, and some of the fascinating insights that this research has so far revealed in relation to hypoxia and human adaptation.
