Hi Dr. Glenn, Its good to see you here in the site. We were classmates before way back in 2008 in RAN- SUMU, i am the doctor from the Maldives. I dont know if you can still remember me. By the way, i am writing/ posting to ask aybody in our group who can be of help / assisstance to me. I am currently finishing my Neurology residency training here in the Philippines and despite of our busy schedule, diving has always been my first love , hence i am doing a research the first in my country , the title of which is " Risk Factor in development of Decompression Sickness amongst compressor diver "..in this regard i would like to ask if anyone from the group who has journals or literature related to my research that may be useful. I am looking forward for any of your comments. Many Thanks and God Bless!

Hello Mark, I do have a vague
I do have a vague recollection of you (sorry have done a few courses since then) but good to see you are still in the field.
With your research project, are you talking about surface supply compressors or Obligatory decompression divers?
The first place I woukld start is Pubmed and do a search there for words like 'Decompression illness" "The bends" "Decompression sickness" and surface supply.
You can do that for free and see the abstracts.
Alos there are a lot of good books around for general information as well so you may need to join a medical library!
Anyway best of luck with the research.
PS: I have deleted the duplicate post.

DMT/remote medicine training
Aloha from Malibu;
I am interested in training to become a qualified dive medical technician. I have found several programs, one of which is on Roatan in the Carribean, but the certification they offer isn't internationally accepted. Another school in Jacksonville, Florida requires full underwater construction curriculum prior to allowing enrollment in their DMT program, a vexing problem...
Does anyone know of programs for non MD civilians that provide training in this field?

I am not sure that SPUMS is going to be the best point of access here as we are based in the South Pacific.
ADAS is the commercial divind organisation here and they may have more details on DMT training in this reagion. IMCA may also be useful in this respect.
