To the Editor: Lamberth raised some worthwhile issues about small-ship adventure tourism to Antarctica in his recent case report describing the death of an 82-year-old tourist.1 This occurred in 1999, the season I started as medical director for the leading polar adventure tour company that chartered the vessel involved. I have some comments and an update.
