Editorial Reviews

Wilderness
"Fills a gap in the medical literature ... A tremendous amount of information [in] a handbook that is easily carried ... Strength of the book lies in its organization ... Very concise ... Admirably succinct and an excellent portable reference ... Recommend."
The New England Journal of Medicine
"Admirably succinct and an excellent portable reference"
Mayo Clinics Proceedings
"Replete with information ... Well worth the price ... urge all who provide medical travel advice, immunizations for travelers, or treatment for ill travellers to purchase this book."
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Winnie Ooi, MD, MPH, DMD (Harvard Medical School)
Description: This is the fourth edition of a concise and practical resource for clinicians interested in the practice of travel and tropical medicine. The book is clearly divided into sections dealing with pre-travel preparation and common post-travel situations that primary care providers may encounter. This edition has been improved over the 2003 edition with new maps and illustrations as well as new evidence-based recommendations.
Purpose: According to the editors, this manual serves as a concise, portable, and practical resource for clinicians in travel and tropical medicine. These worthy objectives in this rapidly changing field are amply met by the authors.
Audience: It is written for new or experienced practitioners in this field, particularly internists, family practitioners, or infectious disease specialists, according to the editors. The book appears most suitable for primary care providers.
Features: The book is divided into sections that deal with pre-travel advice to different groups, such as children and patients with HIV infection, as well as specific problems that patients may encounter after travelling. The section on special advice for travelers is particularly well done as it encompasses diverse topics such as altitude sickness and health screening of immigrants, using a pragmatic approach that is easy to read and apply to patients. Many excellent tables, maps, and illustrations are used to deliver this information. The detailed treatment of certain diseases is not covered in depth, and is beyond the scope of this manual.
Assessment: This well written manual serves as an excellent reference for many of the day-to-day issues encountered in a travel medicine practice as well as for medical providers who encounter patients with a post-travel problem. Topics are covered in more detail than in MCQs in Travel and Tropical Medicine: A Primer Of Travel Medicine, Colbert (iUniverse, 2006). The fourth edition has updated many chapters with new information and evidence-based recommendations.

"This well written manual serves as an excellent reference for many of the day-to-day issues encountered in a travel medicine practice as well as for medical providers who encounter patients with a post-travel problem.

The fourth edition has updated many chapters with new information and evidence-based recommendations." - Doody’s - 4 Stars - ****

"An excellent, concise resource that provides practical information to travel and tropical medicine specialists, health care personnel who work with immigrant and refugee health, and primary care providers in internal medicine, family medicine, and pediatrics. The manual has relevant information for providers around the world, not just North America…The excellent, detailed sections on pretravel consultations and the evaluation of fever and skin lesions in returning travelers as well as parasitic infections make this book a miniature, highly concentrated opus on both travel and tropical medicine." - Clinical Infectious Diseases December 2009
