A superb communication tool, and an absolute must for travelers with chronic medical conditions.

"As a mother and a nurse, I would recommend that every family, frequent business traveler, and ANY individual with chronic medical problems use this book on ALL trips abroad." - Judith Smith, RN
"It is very thorough and easy to understand. It is also a quick and efficient way to get the information across to the doctor." - Carol Schrader, RN
"With the increasing age of our country, rapidly advancing diagnostic techniques, increasing data supporting the necessity of rapid intervention for many major illnesses such as stroke, myocardial infarct, and gastrointestinal bleeding, the medical history is even more important than in the past. Universally, language barriers impede the transfer of this information. This text provides an important communications tool that improves the opportunity for patient access to medical care while abroad." - Wallace N Jensen, MD MACP
