Important note: This book was published in 2002 so some of the information may now have been revised and most importantly the recommended drugs may also have changed. The latest advice can be found in the Oxford Handbook of Expedition Medicine, 2nd Edition, 2015.

Section 1: Pre-expedition medical planning provides advice on avoiding accidents and illness through proper planning and preparation.
Section 2: Field Medicine gives advice on how to deal with some of the medical problems encountered during an expedition.
Section 3: Medical problems of environmental extremes covers some of the medical issues that may be encountered while travelling in different extreme environments.
