EDTC Course II(a) in Dahab

Under the scientific direction of Dr. Adel Taher and organized by the Austrian diving physician, Dr. Ulrike Preiml from Vienna, a training course for diving doctors using the guidelines of the EDTC (European Diving Technology Committee) Course II (a) was held in Egypt for the first time from 9 to 16 November 2009.


The course is recognized by the German Society for Diving and Hyperbaric Medicine (GTUM), the Austrian Society for Diving and Hyperbaric Medicine and the Swiss society for Underwater and Hyperbaric Medicine as a training course for EDTC certification.

 
Speakers for the course included renowned diving physicians from Germany, Switzerland and Egypt such as Dr. Armin Kemmer (D), Dr. Anke Fabian (D), Dr. Karin Meinecke (D), Dr. Peter Knessl (CH) and the experienced diving doctors from Egypt, Dr. Adel Taher (Hyperbaric Medical Center, Sharm el Sheik and Dahab) and Dr. Hossam Nasef (Hypermed Center Hurghada and Marsa Shagara), and Dr. Ulrike Preiml from Austria.

The participants praised the high quality of the presentations and the many valuable practical tips they received. The Europeans were given the opportunity to see how the basics of diving and hyperbaric medicine are put into practice in Egypt and followed with great interest the many case studies from the recompression chamber facilities in the Red Sea.

Dr Adel Taher and Dr. Ulrike Preiml would like to offer this course in the future to doctors from Mediterranean countries with a certain number of course places free of charge for doctors from poorer countries.

The course language will be English and German in the future.

The next Training Course II for the "Diving Medicine Physician" is expected to take place in the spring of 2011 in Dahab.
