Working under Pressure: Using Divers to staff Intensive Care

Michael Von Bertele

In March 2020 the UK was close to being overwhelmed by a surge in Covid19 admissions and the health system collapsing through a lack of trained ICU staff.

In this session you’ll learn about an innovative pilot scheme to rapidly upskill Diver Medical Technicians (DMT’s) to a supporting role in the ICU at The Royal Free Hospital in London. Michael von Bertele will describe the similarities between working beneath the surface of the ocean and in intensive care and the challenges of transferring existing skillsets and building new ones.

This work provides a fresh roadmap for workforce planning in a crisis, as applied not just to the NHS in the UK, but to any humanitarian setting or extreme environment.

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.
