Re: Medicine at Sea advice

Anti-biotics, which to use and how to get them is often of interest to offshore sailors. Dentists are often accommodating with a ******, but can't get a good spectrum.

Having been certified as an EMT back in my 20s (never rode a bus), I learned the value of pure oxygen and would never be long offshore without it.

I think life preservation for heart attacks and shock are very concerning, particularly given the age of most cruisers.

Other than that, basic First Aid and CPR. Everyone should take that course, sailors or not.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
