Travel at High Altitude
produced and published by Medical Expeditions volunteers
Medical Expeditions has produced a booklet which is freely available to anyone. It is written in very simple English and has lots of practical advice for those venturing to altitude. Two resolutions are available as Adobe PDF’s depending on the speed of your connection. The booklet may be printed or copied as required.
There are 2 versions of the Travel at High Altitude booklet available for download – booklet and A4.
For those people who have printers capable of printing in duplex mode (printing on both sides of the paper), the “A5 booklet” versions will be better. These allow the entire booklet to be printed out in the correct order so that the sheets can be stacked, one on top of another, and stapled together. It will be necessary to ensure that the “flip” – long edge or narrow edge is set correctly so that the print on both sides stays the same way up. Experiment with just a few pages to ensure it is working correctly. On printers where you have to turn the paper and feed it back in again yourself, you will again have to make sure you turn the pages over in the correct way.
The A4 versions are ordered according to the page number and can be used when duplex printing is not available. These are formatted with two pages per sheet in page order, and should ideally be printed out on A4 paper, otherwise the images and text will be very small.
