Medical care at sea
Although seafarers undergo regular medical examinations, a crew member may unexpectedly fall ill or become injured as a result of an accident on board. If this occurs seafarers will have to rely on themselves for medical care and treatment – professional medical assistance or facilities are far away. For this reason ‘Medical Care’ and ‘Medical First Aid’ are important elements of the STCW. A STCW certificate is mandatory for all seafarers in order to be able to deal with these situations accordingly.
‘Medical care at sea’ meets the STCW requirements and offers practical information, clear guidelines and assistance during the course. For this reason it is an important reference work to be used on board. Action protocols, descriptions of the most common conditions that can occur while on board, and background information about the human body are discussed extensively. The medical procedures are supported with numerous useful illustrations.
‘Medical care at sea’ was written by Michèle Soudijn. She is a doctor and has been training seafarers in the field of medical care for years.
