Learn how to conduct a neurological assessment on a potentially injured diver in this course. The information gained in this assessment can help convince a diver of the need for oxygen first aid, and help a dive physician determine the proper treatment.
Approximately two-thirds of divers with decompression illness have evidence of damage to their nervous system. These signs are often vague and can go unrecognized by the diver, causing the symptoms to be dismissed as insignificant or not dive related and the treatment possibly to be delayed.
The On-Site Neurological Assessment for Divers focuses on how to obtain essential information about a diver involved in a dive emergency and what information to relay to emergency medical services.
The DAN On-Site Neurological Assessment for Divers course is designed to:
- refresh the knowledge of the warning signs of a dive emergency
- identify when it is appropriate to conduct an on-site neurological assessment
- conduct an on-site neurological assessment
