Title The ship's medicine chest
Bibliographic information Nov. 1983, Vol.128, No.5, p.38-44. 6 ref. Bibl.
Abstract A shipboard medical system was developed which consists of the standardised medicine locker based on US Public Health Service recommendations, with outside supervision of contents by a registered and knowledgeable pharmacist, and training of users as part of a shipboard medical care course in conjunction with the availability of competent medical advice by radio. The system, which is designed for shipboard use, can be adapted to use in isolated environments such as off-shore oil rigs, forestry and construction sites.
