Dr. Hagglund will teach a course he taught to fellow Divemasters when working in the field where no medical services were available. The course includes:
The Art and Judgement of Suturing Wounds
Fracture Assessment and Casting
Master Points for Pain Management
This course addresses the basics of wound assessment, when to suture and when to tape a wound, cleaning and infection control; assessing fractures and how to dress them with a cast; locating Master acupuncture points for pain relief and management.
This course is designed for emergency needs when a medical professional may not be available, as in a disaster. It is not intended to replace or assume the responsibility of getting professional medical attention under normal circumstances.
