To support medical officers onboard, Gard has sponsored the development of a simple online tool to aid the assessment and management of Covid-19 cases onboard ship. The webpage is aimed at officers who are responsible for medical treatment on board ships and mobile offshore units. Its aim is to help them assess and treat persons who might have Coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
The medical information in this website is provided by the Norwegian Centre for Maritime and Diving Medicine (NCMDM), Department of Occupational Medicine at Haukeland University Hospital in Bergen.
The advice provided in the tool about treatment relates to standard medicines and equipment which should be available on board according to international regulations.
