Product Description


Did you know that more than 90 % of cases of visceral leishmaniasis occur in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Nepal? That rafting is the most common way for tourists to contract leptospirosis? That nectar and fruit juice are important energy sources for female as well as male mosquitoes? That Culex tritaeniorhynchus (vector for Japanese encephalitis) can fly 4.82 km under its own power? That MRSA infections can be transmitted by flies? That you should wait at least six weeks before flying following even a minor pneumothorax? If not, this book could be for you. (Journal of the Norwegian Medical Society, June 2013)

About the Author

Dom Colbert has worked extensively in Africa, the Far East and the Caribbean in a voluntary capacity in mission hospitals and has served in many famines and disasters. In 1977 Dom founded the VSA (Voluntary Service Abroad) so that medical electives could work in poor countries. As part of the College of Surgeons of East, Central and Southern Africa (COSECA) he regularly teaches basic science to trainee surgeons and future trainers in that continent. He co-founded the Travel Medicine Society of Ireland and was on the exam board of the International Society of Travel Medicine. Dom regularly delivers lectures at national and international conferences, including delivering grand rounds at the Mayo Clinic in 2009 and delivering the inaugural Eric Walker lecture to the Northern European Conference on Travel Medicine in 2012. He is also an examiner in primary FRCSI and/or Medical students, Benghazi, Kuwait, Khartoum and Dar es Salaam.

Good content of questions which are set at Diploma level and above. However some of the answers are ambiguous which I suppose all multiple choice questions are - so you kind of expect that. Some of the information is out of date and some is incorrect with present current guidance - you always have to go to the various travel health organisations for current information such as Nathnac and the WHO - but useful revision tool. The answers to the questions are actually quite detailed and that in itself is really good reading. I would have like to have seen the answers referenced however to show the sources. Good revision tool however.
