Main features in this issue include:
Do you plan to explore a deep virgin wreck? Is it your dream to discover a unique cave system deep in the jungle? Have you heard about a Blue Hole miles off shore and want to give it a try? In any case, chances are you’ll be diving in a remote location where emergency medical systems are not much more frequent and up-to-date than traffic lights in the Himalayas.
What constitutes an emergency and what kind of emergency may I face?
What do I need to bring in order to reasonably deal with possible emergencies?
In other words: How remote is remote, and is it necessary to have a physician present 24/7?
