NHC teams with DanMedical for medical support and training offshoreCompany News // June 10, 2015
The National Hyperbaric Centre (NHC) in the UK has teamed with DanMedical to deliver what it describes as "a step change in medical support and training" for the offshore industry.
The agreement forms a key part of NHC’s on-going programme of capability enhancements designed to deliver improvements in the quality of medical training and support.
Under the agreement DanMedical’s proven D-MAS HyperSat medical monitoring systems will be available for demonstration and training at NHC.
DanMedical’s systems have recently been installed in the hyperbaric chambers of NHC’s facility, allowing real-time medical monitoring of patients.
The D-MAS device measures the patient’s heart rhythm and ECG, blood pressure, blood oxygen content and core temperature, thereby allowing specialist doctors to provide real-time, expert medical advice from outside the chamber.
D-MAS has already been deployed by a number of leading offshore energy contractors and medical advisors world-wide. With the equipment now also in place at the NHC’s hyperbaric facility, NHC will provide training and first-line support to Aberdeen-based clients and users of DanMedical’s services and devices.
