Abstract

Because of the availability of large amounts of trip-specific medical information, all persons who advise on health risks for future travel need to have a working knowledge of the major areas within travel medicine: pretravel immunizations, diarrhea prevention and self-treatment, malaria prevention, and then a large number of miscellaneous areas including visiting locations of high alltitude, preventing thromboembolic disease during long hauls, and finding a physician when out of town. This article deals with a summary of the specific areas important to travel medicine and provides web sites for future review.
