Course Description: Poked eyes, banged brains, puke, poop, burns, guts, butts, and cuts. It’s not as sexy as sail trim or working the bow, but it’s crucial that we’re prepared to intervene in the unique medical emergencies that occur on the water. We have a great deal of power, not only in preventing injury but also in responding effectively to the accidents that can happen on-board. In this seminar you will be introduced to practical strategies for dealing with the injuries you may encounter while offshore, suggestions for supplies to keep on-board, tips about using items commonly found on boats to assist in treating injury, and resources for further study. You will come away with the self-confidence and knowledge that you are prepared for medical emergencies on the water and the enthusiasm to learn more.
