Overview

This second edition of Principles and Practice of Travel Medicine has been updated to provide a comprehensive description of travel medicine and is an invaluable reference resource to support the clinical practice of travel medicine.

This new edition covers the many recent advances in the field, including the development of new and combined vaccines; malaria prophylaxis; emerging new infections; new hazards resulting from travel to long haul destinations; health tourism; and population movements. The chapter on vaccine-preventable diseases includes new developments in licensed vaccines, as well as continent-based recommendations for their administration.

There are chapters on the travel health management of high risk travellers, including the diabetic traveller, the immuno-compromised, those with cardiovascular, renal, neurological, gastrointestinal, malignant and other disorders, psychological and psychiatric illnesses, pregnant women, children and the elderly.

With increasing numbers of ever more adventurous travellers, there is discussion of travel medicine within extreme environments, whilst the chapter on space tourism may well be considered the future in travel medicine.

Principles and Practice of Travel Medicine is an invaluable resource for health care professionals providing advice and clinical care to the traveller.
