MedAire provides insight into the reality of delivering assistance services to the yachting industry in a medical emergency. With years of experience in the field and thousands of real incidents to help illustrate their points, this workshop will provide an understanding of when and why you should call for advice and support, and what to expect when you do. Through understanding the processes and procedures captains and crew are much better placed to make the decisions that they will need to on the ground in an emergency. These can be decisions of life and death in some scenarios. An honest assessment of the capabilities of emergency services at sea often informs decisions around the level of resources and training available in the medical context onboard. With lots of availability for questions and discussion, this workshop will be a real eye opener in to scenarios that we all hope we never have to face.
