We are a UK flagged vessel. Where we sail, the Coast Guard will put a cardiologist on the radio
or on a satphone in case of need to talk you through what needs to be done, and send a helo if in range.
Having the right drugs and gear
on board could save a life. Obviously you can't take a whole hospital with you, and you can't be sure to have everything needed of every possible contingency, but some things are more likely to be useful or life-saving than others, right?
I've gotten a lot of great advice here, for which many thanks!
