I am starting this thread for the specific purpose of providing cruising members with a place to seek opinions and free advice on the best “local” medical
support from resident sailors in any given area.
Whether it is used for preplanning or an actual “medical” emergency
call for help, I suggest that the name of the area is put in the sub title of the post to help in a search.
I am also curious about which interactive medical software
to help diagnose and manage family health
issues are considered the best today by some of our medical members.
I have in the past purchased interactive discs from the Mayo Clinic to use in circumnavigations but now I find it online Mayo Clinic medical information and tools for healthy living - MayoClinic.com
I still think having that computer resource offline is prudent so look forward to updated advice from various users on which software
programs to look at.
Lastly, there can be no liability in providing advice from friends on best local medical resources.
It is just the kind of help we hope we never need, but perhaps this Thread can become a useful place to find it, when you are a stranger in a strange land.
My apologies if this thread already exists
