In October 1995 a conference of physicians, scientists, and polar explorers was convened at the Scott Polar Research Institute in Cambridge, England. With one voice these experts spoke out about the need for improvement in the standards of safety and medical care for the polar tourist. The conclusions of the world class experts who attended the conference and their unique perspectives on the topic form the basis for this first ever book addressing this important need. The editors have skillfully synthesized the presentation of the conference attendees and drawn on their own experience and that of other knowledgeable experts to prepare a comprehensive look at the field of polar travel, medicine, and safety.
