Incorrect Wording

JAMA. 2000;284(23):2999. doi:10.1001/jama.284.23.2999

In the Research Letter entitled "Supplemental Oxygen and Mountaineer Death Rates on Everest and K2" published in the July 12, 2000, issue of THE JOURNAL (2000;284:181), the final sentence was worded incorrectly. The sentence that read "Mountaineers considering whether to use supplemental oxygen should consider the risk of death during descent" should have read "Mountaineers considering whether to use supplemental oxygen can now consider the associated fatality risks during descent."
