This is the recommended textbook for the Diver Medic Course.
A comprehensive textbook written to address the requirements, standards, and practices of both the International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) and the National Board of Diving and Hyperbaric Medical Technology (NBDHMT) for the training and certification as a Diver Medical Technician. Almost 600 pages of emergency medical and
diving information and skills to prepare the Diver Medic for the rigors of off-shore and field work.
This workbook is intended to accompany the Diver Medical Technician-Care of the Injured Diver, 1st Edition textbook. It will hopefully provide exercises that will challenge the student and reinforce what was learned from both Diver Medical Technician-Care of the Injured Diver and lessons taught in the classroom. This workbook will also act as an examination review for both the NBDHMT and IMCA certification examinations.
This text is designed to be carried with the Diver Medic. Published in a 6 x 9 format, it addresses not only emergency medicine & diver care, but also common medical issues that the Diver Medic, working in a remote or isolated environment, needs to deal with. This is an extremely comprehensive text with sections on Patient Assessments, Safety, General Medicine, Emergency Medicine, Environmental Injuries, Infections, Multi System Trauma, Wound Care, Burn Care, Diving Injuries, Medical Skills Review, and Much More.
