Travel at High Altitude update

Posted by Tina Gardner on 11/04/2008

The highly successful Travel and High Altitude booklet by Medex has recently been updated and the new version is now available online.

The booklet is a guide to staying healthy at altitude written for people with non-medical backgrounds.  Thanks to feedback, the booklet now has additional information on Diamox and changes have been made to the 'pre-existing conditions' section. It has also been translated into Greek.

Over 6,500 copies have been downloaded from the website and scores of weblinks have been made to sites all over the world.

Download your copy at www.medex.org.uk.
