DANNEUROApproximately two-thirds of divers with decompression illness have evidence of damage to their nervous system. These signs are often vague and can go unrecognized by the diver, causing the symptoms to be dismissed as insignificant or not dive related and the treatment possibly to be delayed.

The On-Site Neurological Assessment for Divers focuses on how to obtain essential information about a diver involved in a dive emergency and what information to relay to emergency medical services.

The DAN On-Site Neurological Assessment for Divers course is designed to:

  • refresh the knowledge of the warning signs of a dive emergency
  • identify when it is appropriate to conduct an on-site neurological assessment
  • conduct an on-site neurological assessment

  • Only medical professionals should diagnose medical conditions. The information you gather while performing a neurological assessment will be useful to help the dive physician understand the extent of the injury and how it has changed in the time it took to get the diver from the dive site to definitive care.

    Recommended Minimum Hours of Training
    Knowledge development (lecture) hours = 1
    Skills development (practical) hours = 3

    Learning Objectives
    At the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • understand and identify common warning signs of decompression illness
  • take a dive history to determine when it is appropriate to conduct a complete on-site neurological assessment
  • use an on-site neurological assessment slate to conduct a complete on-site neurological assessment

  • Skill Performance Objectives
    To successfully complete the DAN On-Site Neurological Assessment for Divers course, participants must demonstrate skill and confidence in conducting an On-Site Neurological Assessment.
