Re: Medicine at Sea advice

I had a crew member who was medically evacuated mid way between Hawaii and Vancouver. I had prostate issues that could not be resolved. We contact CG Honolulu who arranged with AMVER for a rendezvous with a container ship which took him to Los Angeles.

The story is here Medical Evacuation on Maui Return

The thread also has some pictures.
