Medicine at Sea advice


I am an EMT/FF (and half of a paramedic...I finish the class in October), and I have been asked to give a presentation next weekend about medical emergencies at sea and their treatment. I was also asked that class be geared towards those who do not have access to medevac (air support), as they are heading offshore.

My question is this: Keeping in mind that I AM NOT A DOCTOR (I stayed at a Holiday Inn once....well ok, it was an express), what ailments or injuries would you like to hear about? So far, I have dehydration, dislocations, sprains, and burns.

Any other suggestions?
