The agreement forms a key part of NHC’s on-going programme of capability enhancements designed to deliver improvements in the quality of medical training and support. Under the agreement DanMedical’s proven D-MAS HyperSat medical monitoring systems will be available for demonstration and training at NHC.
DanMedical’s systems have recently been installed in the hyperbaric chambers of NHC’s facility, allowing real-time medical monitoring of patients. The D-MAS device measures the patient’s heart rhythm and ECG, blood pressure, blood oxygen content and core temperature, thereby allowing specialist doctors to provide real-time, expert medical advice from outside the chamber.
D-MAS has already been deployed by a number of leading offshore energy contractors and medical advisors world-wide. With the equipment now also in place at the NHC’s hyperbaric facility, NHC will provide training and first-line support to Aberdeen-based clients and users of DanMedical’s services and devices.
Alan Green, General Manager of NHC said:
“NHC is committed to improving the safety of subsea operations through the delivery of high-fidelity training and world-class emergency response services. We share this commitment to safety with DanMedical, whose capabilities complement our own. They are a key partner in our mission to advance the services and capabilities of NHC.”
Peter Couldery, CEO of DanMedical added:
“We are delighted to be working with NHC to raise the standard of medical monitoring available to offshore workers. We believe that NHC, with the support of its parent company JFD, can play a key role in training medics, divers and workers in innovative medical practices that can save lives”.
