    Diver Medical Technician (DMT) course - details needed

    Hi,

    As most of my diving is in remote spots I was thinking about doing a Diver Medical Technician (DMT) course.

    Does anyone know what the course covers, cost duration and most importantly if its taught anywhere near to Singapore.

    Cheers
    Mike

    Mike,

    I took the course for that very reason; to be able to support a diver in DCS distress over a long period until he can be transported to a facility from the (very) remote location.

    The actual curriculum will vary somewhat, based upon location and "focus". For instance, in my case, the course was given by a facility that supported the "oil patch". The emphasis was on procedures performed in a chamber, usually at the direction of a medical director on-shore.

    In any case, the course will go beyond the standard ACLS curriculum, and (in no special order) offer diving related field medicine, chamber operation, gas supply problems, DCS studies, IWR, and related long-term support procedures, to name a few.

    Cost varies a lot from agency to agency, and with varying location. I would contact UHMS for recommendations of courses in your area.

    Rob

    There is one starting on the 5th of March finishing on the 15th here in Pattaya Thailand. The cost of the course is $1500 U.S. The agency offering this is DDRC out of England. The cost actually went up $300 dollars from the last one. I was considering this one but since the price went up I may just go to Adelaid Australia and do it there. The course in Austalia is a 3 week course and is one the best courses around from what I hear. By the way the $$$ arrived. Thanks.

    As a Dr, why not take a hyperbaric medicine course? DAN offers them fairly frequently, in different locations. Or are you looking more for info about prehospital care? We (Long Beach, California) have one coming up in May, but it's a long way from Singapore.

    I was not impressed with your "galley table side" manner when the remains of my toe nail needed ripping off :D
