The Near Ocean Medical Kit (NOM) is designed for vessels cruising generally within 150nm of the coast, so within reasonable reach of rescue services such as helicopters.
The kit facilitates a reasonable degree of independence for vessels cruising the Baltic, around the northern coast of Europe, down the western seaboard, and for seasons in the Mediterranean. Similarly, it would be a reasonable medical kit for cruising the Eastern seaboard of the Americas, and spending seasons in the Caribbean.
The kit is designed to enable treatment of minor medical problems on board the boat, and provide stabilisation of sick or injured crew until definitive help arrives.
The kit is recommended for boat crew who have had first aid training, and ideally have telemedical support in addition. It is intended for private vessels, undertaking non-commercial activities.
The Near Ocean Medical Kit is usually supplied in one Pelicase, which keep the contents of the kit in excellent condition in the harsh marine environment. There is an alternate option to supply in a soft bag if required.
The contents of the NOM are arranged in an intuitive series of modules, reflecting the most common range of treatments. The composition of the kit is detailed over leaf.
The Near Ocean Medical Kit is formulated for up to ten crew, and up to twenty crew with the addition of an adjunct bag.
The Near Ocean Medical Kit can be readily upgraded to the Distant Ocean Medical Kit – designed for trans-ocean passages – as requirements and voyages increase in magnitude.
