On-Site Neurological Assessment for Divers

Neuro

Approximately two-thirds of divers with decompression illness have evidence of damage to the nervous system. These signs are often vague and can go unrecognized by the diver and can cause them to be dismissed as insignificant or not dive-related.

This class teaches you how to obtain essential information about a diver involved in a dive emergency and what information to relay to emergency medical services.

You Will Learn:
• How to understand and identify common warning signs of decompression illness
• How to properly take a dive history to determine when it is appropriate to conduct a complete On-Site Neurological Assessment
• How to use an On-Site Neurological Assessment Slate to conduct a complete On-Site Neurological Assessment
