I am excited to share some updates on my professional work. Recently, I became a member of the Faculty of Pre-Hospital Care at the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh. Additionally, I have completed two training courses, “Operational Leadership in SAR” and “Helicopter in SAR Advanced Level”. Furthermore, I have finished the first paper for my Diploma studies in Offshore and Remote Medicine at the same College. I am thrilled to have achieved these milestones and look forward to continuing my professional development.
That was a busy June with preparation for a large project in Norway and many meetings with suppliers for equipment. I was lucky enough to get cooperation with Retevis so now I can supply teams in and around Norway with reliable comms. It goes without saying that I had more training than always, and besides the University work at the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, there was a very intensive Ultrasound course that was amazing but also made it clear that there is still more work to be done before I can call myself an Ultrasound expert. I meight have finally found a monitor which gives me a reliable telemedicine option and also in that direction I have been in contact and we are waiting for more information on that behalf.
Intensive product test near Folgefonna Glacier in Norway. HopeTerm was one of my product highlights a small device that allows to measure body core temperature. Small size, robust design and ICU performance.
Besides the study in Scotland I finally got fully licensed as A2 pilot for UAV and got myself a bit in to the work of SAR teams who operate with Drones. First course is done and I also forced myself to update on ACLS as I skipped that training for while.
Work in the high north of Norway and preparation for a polar medicine training in the high north. Besides that I am rotating to get gear in place and setup a telemedicine test from Antarctica. The plan is to use a modified Starlink system to transfer medical data from a moving platform to Europe and establish a solid connection. Exciting but also a lot of work and expensive gear is required to make that happen. I also quite work early this season to be able to travel to the UK to join the Royal Geographic Society conference and go to Royal College of Surgeons symposium there will be also meetings with communication experts and gear manufacturer for a custom backpack….Stay tuned for updates.
Antarctica mission in planning and we are still working on the research proposal. The conferences upcoming. Stay tuned more updates coming.
Test successful completed, the integration of Powerfilm Solarpanels worked without problems. At this point we have unlimited energy to operate the Starlink and have 1,5 hrs. to send telemedicine data wherever we want.
