On-site Neurological Assessment

ON-SITE NEUROLOGICAL ASSESSMENT

Although a small proportion of diving accidents are indeed life-threatening, many display evidence of damage to the brain and nervous system.

By knowing which injuries involve the nervous system, emergency services can better determine when immediate evacuation and recompression are essential.

This is particularly important when injuries occur in remote locations and medical facilities are many hours away by road or boat or may even require airlifting to another country.

By learning how to conduct a neurological assessment on an injured diver, this course equips divers to partner with DAN and the emergency service providers: It allows you to serve as the eyes and hands of a diving medical specialist talking to you over the phone – possibly even from another country.

Injured divers often ignore or deny neurological problems like memory loss or weakness because they are not painful.

Therefore, demonstrating these problems during a neurological examination may be the only way to convince an injured diver that they are in need of treatment. We want to encourage all DAN members and divers to undergo this training.
