Travel Medicine

As both a doctor and a traveler, my hope is that this is a topic where i can distinguish my blog from the multitude of other travel sites out there.  I have to admit that I would much rather write about travel than medicine so these posts might not come with the same regularity as my other posts.  Below is a short list of topics I hope to cover in the near future.  If there is anything else you would like me to discuss, please leave a comment.

-Deep vein thrombosis - aka Economy Class Syndrome
-Altitude sickness
-Motion sickness
-Tips for jet lag
-Travelers diarrhea
-Scuba diving injuries
-Pre-trip medical screening
-Medical help abroad
-Cruise ship medicine
-Wilderness medicine topics

*Please remember that any medical topics discussed here represent my own personal views.  They are not to be taken as medical advice and should not replace a visit to, or the advice of your primary care doctor.
