Aquarius program offers course with World Extreme Medicine

Divers at Aquarius

The Medina Aquarius Program has partnered with World Extreme Medicine to offer a unique course, Hyperbaric Medicine and Saturation Diving, designed to train physicians to recognize, evaluate and treat diving medical emergencies. Taught by dive medicine experts at Aquarius Reef Base and partner diving medicine experts, the course includes lectures, case presentations, printed support materials and hands-on practical scenarios.

This course culminates with the opportunity to use a hard hat diving helmet to make multiple dives at Aquarius Reef Base and stay at the undersea research laboratory for one night. Participants will learn about saturation diving and the vital life support mechanisms required to operate the world’s only undersea laboratory during their overnight stay.
