About


This is what we do.

Hello! 

Welcome to "Surviving The Death Zone"! 

We are a group of anaesthetist and critical care doctors based at Chesterfield Royal Hospital who are passionate about mountain medicine. The origins of this blog date back to a series of courses that we've recently organised. Their success made us realise that there's an incredible appetite for mountain medicine in the UK and beyond. The "Surviving The Death Zone" Blog reaches hundreds of like minded people every day, providing them with details of jobs, courses and publications. There's also interviews with leading figures, equipment reviews and lots of content to educate, entertain and inspire. So whatever you’re looking for in mountain medicine, there's a good chance you'll find it here!

For those who wish to become Clinical Fellows in Anaesthetics, Critical Care and Mountain Medicine at Chesterfield Royal Hospital this will be the first place we'll advertise.
