“Travel at High Altitude” – FREE info booklet

travel-at-high-altitude-fro.gifFor anyone planning a trip to the Alps or further afield, this is a new book produced by members of Medex (the mountain club for folk with an interest in mountain medicine) that gives comprehensive information on the effects of altitude, together with practical advice to help you stay healthy in the mountains, monitor your personal acclimatisation and deal with altitude related emergencies.

The booklet is freely downloadable, designed to be easily readable and Medex (who support the charitable aims of medical expeditions amongst other things) are anxious that it reaches the widest audience possible, so why not  download a copy now (4mb file) – and you might just avoid getting that headache next time!
