Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This is a valuable book that has been appropriately updated with information and issues prompted by changing circumstances in the world (epidemiology and treatment of malaria, wars), emerging diseases, and ecological change since the

2008 edition. It is clearly written by experts in their various fields and contains many tables and algorithms valuable to travel medicine practitioners.

This update would make a useful addition to the travel medicine practitioner's library." - Winnie Ooi, MD, MPH, DMD(Harvard Medical School) Doody Review Service

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Winnie Ooi, MD, MPH, DMD (Harvard Medical School)
Description: Using a practical and evidence-based approach, the authors have designed this book as a resource for travel medicine practitioners, incorporating topics from pretravel evaluation and vaccinations to the most common problems encountered during and after travel. Much has changed since the 2008 edition, and the new information needed to be reviewed by the contributors who draw upon their extensive clinical experience.
Purpose: The book is intended to be read from beginning to end like a course in travel medicine. However, given the inherent delay in getting a book like this to press, it is difficult to have it also serve a reference for those looking for the very latest information in the field. The book is also available online, with easy navigability between topics and access to web resources.
Audience: The intended audience includes both novice and experienced travel medicine practitioners. For the most part, the book successfully reaches this audience using many practical algorithms and useful charts, as well tables emphasizing key points in each chapter. Greater detail is provided in the body of the chapters for more experienced practitioners. The authors are all authorities in their respective fields and represent a multinational perspective.
Features: The book addresses the most important topics in travel medicine, ranging from pretravel evaluation, immunization, and malaria prophylaxis to excellent chapters dealing with high altitude medicine, immigration medicine, diving medicine, and the sick returning traveler. New to this edition are the helpful tables and maps in the appendix that describe 11 different popular destinations. There are many photographs throughout the book, but the quality is variable. Some chapters gloss over controversial subjects, such as whether blastocystis should be treated as a pathogen.
Assessment: This is a valuable book that has been appropriately updated with information and issues prompted by changing circumstances in the world (epidemiology and treatment of malaria, wars), emerging diseases, and ecological change since the 2008 edition. It is clearly written by experts in their various fields and contains many tables and algorithms valuable to travel medicine practitioners. The closest equivalent is the Textbook of Travel Medicine and Health, 2nd edition, DuPont and Steffen (BC Decker, 2001), but much has changed since then. This update would make a useful addition to the travel medicine practitioner's library.
