Ken Kamler was de enige dokter op de Mount Everest toen de ergste ramp zich voordeed uit de geschiedenis van haar beklimming. Op TEDMED deelt hij het ongelooflijke verhaal van de strijd tegen de extreme omstandigheden die de klimmer doorstond. Hij gebruikt hersenscantechnologie om het medisch mirakel in kaart te brengen van de man die zo' 36 uur onder de sneeuw was begraven.
