How does the human body react when pushed into its limits? This episode of 'Beyond human limits' investigates through various experiments performed by alpinists and/or doctors about hypoxia, a disorder by which the complete body, or a region of it is deprived of the adequate oxygen supply. The documentary reviews the experience of Dr. Nicolas Jaeger, who in 1979 tested his own resistance to hypoxia, by living two months at an altitude of 6,700 meters on the highest peak of the Peruvian Andes, the Nevado Huascaran.
