For this team of doctors, patients include everyone from the elite of the world's climbing communities, frostbitten and dying from pulmonary oedema, to holiday trekkers with altitude sickness, and local children suffering from all the illnesses you might expect to find in one of the world's poorest countries.

Evacuation from this altitude is either a two-day walk on the back of a porter or an expensive and dangerous helicopter ride.
