This program focuses on how to obtain essential information about a diver involved in a dive emergency and what information to relay to emergency medical services.
Only medical professionals should diagnose medical conditions. The information you gather while performing a neurological assessment will be useful to help the dive physician understand the extent of the injury and how it has changed in the time it took to get the diver from the dive site to definitive care.
