Hypoxia

HypoxiaPilots learn about hypoxia during training. Every now and again an incident comes along to remind us of the hazard. Many civilian pilots have not experienced high altitude chamber training. Therefore they will not have experienced first-hand their and others reaction to hypoxia. People cannot self-monitor the effects, hence the danger. Looking at your finger nails does not mitigate this hazard in any way.
