'This second edition will be a much appreciated update of the first and remains a basic read for those interested in the field.' Alex de Voogt, Maastricht Universsity, the Netherlands, HFES Newsletter, June 2007 'Aeromedical Transportation' by Dr Terry Martin has been a cornerstone of our training of flight doctors and nurses. This 2nd edition however validates my dreams and vision of aeromedical transport, where doctors and nurses work together in a mutual supportive way. But the book transcends far beyond the medical and nursing issues. It puts the best practices from Europe, Australia, USA and Asia in its aviation, logistic and administrative context. Therefore the book will find its place in the teaching library of every international company involved in patient transport.' Patrick Deroose, RN, CCNC, Group General Manager, Assistance Operations, International SOS 'This book is the 'must have' for everyone who desires a satellite view of existing knowledge about patient transportation in the aeromedical setting. The book is not only a rich source of focused information, it's also easy to digest and a stimulant for initiatives on how to improve the standard for aeromedical transportation. It will prove of great relevance and interest primarily for doctors but also nurses, paramedics and those who administer air ambulance organizations.' Helge Brandstrom M.D., Senior Consultant Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care, Umea University Hospital, Sweden and Project Medical Director, Swedish National Air Medevac ' The author said that the book "is intended as a basic primer for those who seek to work in transfer and retrieval medicine". He foresees the next decade as an" exciting time for the academic development of the subject" - one that will see "postgraduates with masters and doctorates in patient transportation".'
