ATLANTA, GA – June 16, 2021 – In Travel 911, bestselling author and global traveling physician, Dr. Yvette, provides a comprehensive must-have guide for handling common medical concerns while traveling. Chock-full of fact-based, tried-and-true wisdom, this handbook also delivers preventative measures and some quick first aid tips that will help readers avoid unforeseen health hazards so that they can travel well.
“Environmental medical emergencies related to heat or cold occur while travelers venture into another environment, whether hiking, trekking, biking, or running. Often, the emergency will occur in remote areas where immediate medical assistance is not available. Basic prevention such as wearing protective clothing, wearing layers, and limiting exposure time can save limbs and lives,” says Dr. Yvette.
The topics covered in Travel 911, such as what to pack, situations to anticipate, traveler’s diarrhea, skin issues, and how to recognize/handle a medical emergency as a non-medical person will advise readers on a wide range of possible, unfortunate occurrences that could affect not only how pleasant their trip is but also how well they recover from unexpected medical events. Within the pages of this guidebook, Dr. Yvette doles out the knowledge she has gained from her exploration of over forty countries.
Travel 911 will thoroughly prepare readers for their next voyage. “In the USA, 911 is the number to call for Emergency Medical Services and an ambulance. It is not the same in countries outside of the USA. Know the emergency call number of your destination or how to seek immediate emergency medical care.”
