Description

Essential for travellers going anywhere remote or challenging - fully revised and updated edition of the classic medical survival handbook. Too often travel to out-of-the-way places ends in difficulties - and most are avoidable. The key to avoiding accidents and illness is proper planning and preparation, and Expedition Medicine shows how that should be done. It also sets out what to do if things go wrong. This is the completely revised seventh edition. It has been comprehensively updated to take into account new research findings and medicines. It is written by world-class experts and is full of practical tips and advice, as well as extensive details about first-aid kits, emergency procedures and evacuation routines. There are sections on every type of travel, from desert to mountain, canoeing to diving and off-road driving to walking. Vaccinations, medicines and hygiene are all covered. It would be foolish for those who travel or work in remote and challenging environments not to study this book before starting off.
