Summary
"The High Altitude Medicine Handbook covers all the aspects of medicine in high and/or mountainous regions of the world, and is established as a key text in this field." "This new edition is not only fully revised and updated throughout; it also includes new sections on medico-legal considerations for treks and expeditions, and a revised section on children at altitude, as well as additional fact sheets and appendices." "Family doctors, nurses, travel health centre staff, expedition planners, medical personnel, climbers and trekkers will all find this book an essential read."--BOOK JACKET
