New 5th Edition of Wilderness Medicine Released
The new 5th edition of Wilderness Medicine has been released by Elsevier Press. Wilderness Medicine is considered "the" reference book for outdoor medicine.
Wilderness Medicine is by prominent wilderness medicine pioneer and Medicine for the Outdoors blogger Dr. Paul Auerbach. The new 5th edition is 2336 pages - a colossal range of health and medical management topics for health providers, athletes, rescuers, adventurers, and travelers in wide-ranging environments.
Dr. Auerbach honored me by having me contribute the chapter, "Exercise, Conditioning, and Performance," covering developing physical strength and skills to survive and adapt to exertion in heat, cold, at elevation and underwater, improve training level, avoid and rehabilitate injury, and use of performance-enhancing drugs, food, and devices.
Dr. Auerbach's blog post and Elsevier tell more.
Congratulations Dr. Auerbach.
