‘All aboard!’ My Life as a Ships doctor in Antarctica, Russia and beyond!

Moniek Mestrom

This session is aimed for the ones who want to take their career to the polar regions. I have spent 6-7 months in the Antarctic and Arctic working as a ship physician on board small expedition vessels (100 passengers) and I can talk about the potential risks of embarking ships to these areas, the (im-)possibilities on board the ship, the limitations of the hospital on board and the second bit we would discuss scenarios in which I had to decide whether or not to evacuate a passenger. I would like to share some of the skills that I have learned and give the students some guidance and insight in risk assesment in the polar regions where it can sometimes take up to 7 days of sailing to return to the mainland for further care of to be in reach of a helicopter for the casualty to be medevaced. Smaller groups/workshop style possible.

Venue:  

Address:
Dynamic Earth, 112 Holyrood Rd, Edinburgh, Aberdeenshire, EH8 8AS, United Kingdom

Description:

Hutton Room at Dynamic Earth

Holyrood Road, Edinburgh, United Kingdom

Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital city is uniquely inspirational, not only for its fabled loveliness, but also for its associations – past and present – with innovation, creativity, discovery and progress.

It was here chloroform was first used as an anaesthetic and the founder of penicillin was born. Dolly the sheep was cloned at the University of Edinburgh’s Roslin Institute. The first ‘bionic’ hand – a powered prosthetic with articulating fingers – was developed by a spin-out company from the city’s Princess Margaret Rose Hospital, and the fastest-selling video game of all time – Grand Theft Auto V, by Rockstar North was developed!

Edinburgh has great transport connections too; home to Scotland’s busiest airport which serves 188 destinations worldwide, rail links which run all over the UK, easy access from Scotland’s motorway network and public transport in the city itself is simple with a plentiful supply of buses, trams and taxis.

There’s plenty to do after dark with lots of unique venues to experience a full flavour of Scotland’s culture. We have partnered with Convention Edinburgh and all of our Extreme Medicine delegates will receive the Edinburgh Rewards Card with their conference badge, opening a door to special offers from a selection of bars, restaurants, shops and tour operators.

Our conference venue, Dynamic Earth is a 5 star visitor experience, inviting guests to take a journey through time to witness the story of planet Earth. Dynamic Earth offers synergy within a global health context which match our own sustainable, community minded focus.
