Are you a North Carolina diver? DAN has a free talk tonight!
For the last three years, DAN HQ in Durham (North Carolina) has been running a bi-monthly diving medicine / research / safety series of lectures at their office in West Colony Place. The talk is held on the first Wednesday of every other month at 19:00. This programme provides an excellent opportunity for anyone with a thirst for diving knowledge to listen to a variety of local experts discuss dive medicine, research, and safety.
Tonight’s lecture (Wednesday 7th August 2013) is entitled “Critical Thinking of Post-Dive Symptoms” and given by Dr. Matias Nochetto.
Post-dive symptoms are often assumed to reflect a decompression injury but they may indicate an array of health or environmental issues. This highly interactive session will present sample cases from the DAN emergency line, letting participants experience the challenges of gathering and interpreting information coming in from the field.
For those of you unfamiliar with Dr Matias, he is DAN’s Director of Operations and Outreach.
Doors will open at 18:15 for a pre-event social, and ‘Down Under‘ very kindly serve light refreshments. The presentation begins at 19:00 and will last approximately 45 – 55 minutes, followed by a question-and-answer session.
Admission to the lecture is free, and no registration is required. So come early, come hungry and hear Dr Matias wax lyrical about Post-Dive Symptoms.
