The new Clinical Aviation Medicine is the latest iteration of the essential reference text, which has been a tremendous resource for civil aviation medical examiners and military flight surgeons for more than two decades. This fourth edition represents the continued refinement and improvement of a highly readable medical textbook. A fifth coauthor and aviation medicine expert has been added, and the book has increased in length by one third. It remains one of the few books to address this intriguing niche of operational medicine.
