Some of you may want to check out the blog "Medicine for the Outdoors" at http://www.healthline.com/blogs/outdoor_health/
While this is not a sailing specific blog (the author takes a very broad view of "Outdoor Medicine"), sailors will find much of interest here. There is usually at least one new posting
every week. Just a few examples of recent posts that may be of interest are:
March 2009: A review of a product from Coastal Solutions of Savannah, Georgia
named "Jellyfish Squish" to relieve pain from jellyfish stings.
February 2009: Crown-of-Thorns starfish envenomation
December 2008: Side Effects of Transdermal Scopolamine for Motion Sickness
November 2008: Oral Ondansetron to Assist Oral Rehydration Therapy
The author Dr. Paul Auerbach, is on the faculty in Emergency
Medicine at Stanford University School
of Medicine, is a founder and past president of the Wilderness Medical
Society, editor of the definitive medical
reference text Wilderness Medicine, 5th Edition, and author of Medicine for the Outdoors, which is a leading book on outdoor health
for laypersons. He is also a very experienced diver, and has been active in and honored by DAN. He has also spent time working as a physician in third world settings as part of various exchange programs.
As I mentioned above, not all posts will be of interest to sailors, but many are. I find this blog a good source of very up to date information on topics, products, and services related to health
and medicine in remote
settings. Check it out and see what you think.
