The first edition of the ICAO Manual of Civil Aviation Medicine (Medical Manual) was published in 1974, second in 1985 and now this is the third edition in a attempt to  reflect those advances as they apply to civil aviation medicine, emphasizing the clinical problems encountered in medical certification in civil aviation. It is designed for the experienced designated medical examiner as well as for the aviation medical expert and medical assessor, to aid in the approach and management of intricate borderline cases. When consulting the Medical Manual it should be remembered that it is intended as guidance material only and as such has no regulatory status.
