Diving and Marine Medicine | Maldives CME

Date:
November 17-23, 2013
Location:
NA, Maldives
Description:
This is a 6 day medical training course, aiming to give participants an understanding of conditions likely to occur whilst working as a doctor on a diving or marine based expedition. Topics covered will include pre-expedition medicals, diving-related illness, marine envenomation, emergency treatments and casevac plans. Practical sessions include boat handling, search & rescue and underwater communications. There will be at least 2 dives a day, including a night dive and hopefully a visit to the hyperbaric chamber on Kuramathi Island – the largest facility in the Maldives. At the end of the week, participants should feel confident to act as medical officer on a diving expedition, or in any UK diving medical practice.
