DAN On-Site Neurological Assessment Course.... Divers evaluate a patient correctly! 

 

 This course provides divers with a very quick step by step process NOT TO DIAGNOSE DCI but to both assist in identification of DCI in a case where perhaps the symptoms are not obvious and aslo to record for reference by Hyperbaric facilities the condition of the patient and changes in the condition prior to recompression. A great addition to the divers skell set and knowledge!!
