In addition, they also educate in new developments as they occur in academic hospitals and medical faculties. This implies that, in the lectures, the characteristics of disorders are discussed, with their diagnostics and treatment, from the point of view of the academic state of the art. In short, the Capita Selecta are marked by a mix of education in dive medicine of the respective disciplines and related education in the discipline itself. Also, the Capita will pay attention to the requirements of the medical examination. The Capita are aimed at non-specialized physicians, first-line physicians, sport- and occupational physicians, professional diving physicians, clinical doctors and paramedical professionals and diving instructors. In general, the teachers have their affiliation with academic hospitals and medical faculties, and have an international reputation in patient care, academic education and/or medical research as becomes clear from their curriculum vitae. To have lower thresholds for the courses given in the Netherlands (one-day courses with easy to reach venue) and abroad (5-days courses) they are low budget. Recommendation The course is recommended by the expert group of dive medicine of the Vereniging voor Sportgeneeskunde (Soc Sports Med) and by the Nederlandse Vereniging voor Duikgeneeskunde (NVD, Dutch Soc Dive Med). Accreditation In general, the level of the various lectures / subjects of the meeting are (at least) in accordance with that of EDTC and ECHM, level 1 (Medical Examiner) and Level 2D (Diving Physician). The program comprises 18 oral contact hours. The Dutch NVD, NVAB, VSG and NICDA (diving physicians C and D) have been requested to provide 18 accreditation points for the meeting and “outside own specialism” (GAIA) will yield 18 points too. The course members who have registered for accreditation will obtain a certificate after completion of the whole course, including test.

He is the

    author of dive medicine related chapters in the handbook on drowning and the Dutch course book in sport medicine. As a normoxic trimix CCR diver he lives up to the motto: dive docs should dive themselves. For diving, he has frequently visited Malta, Cyprus, the Red Sea and Bonaire

    Chris Jiskoot Chris Jiskoot studied medicine at the University of Amsterdam. In 1981 he started as the occupational health officer of the wrack clearing operation in the Westerscheld and for the fire/ rescue divers in the province of Zeeland. His specialization as a diver-physician he took in the service of the Dutch Royal Navy and as Dive-physician B, the only one at Arbo Unie. He is member of the Expert Centre for Hyperbaric work in Vlissingen, Zeeland with special interest in heart and circulation disorders. He performs examinations for divers and fire/ rescue personnel. At DRDC in Toronto he obtained additional training on saturation diving and Doppler echography. He took part in hyperbaric projects such as the Westerschelde tunnel and the Noord-Zuidlijn of the Amsterdam subway system and he made a risk management analysis for the divers of the fire brigade of Terneuzen, Zeeland. He was

    involved with the Sport-Medisch Advies Centrum (sport-medical advisory centre) as expert in diver examinations. With the University of Maastricht he maintains a close relationship in the field of stress and panic disorders in divers. As a member of NVD and EUBS he frequently participates in their meetings and congresses. Diving is mainly in service of his greater passion: sailing on his yacht.

    Jean-Claude Le Pchon graduated as biochemical engineer from INSA in Lyon in 1963 and as marine biologist from Nice University. He has been employed at the Muse Ocanographique of Monaco as a research engineer and incidentally as scientific diver during the Conshelf III Experiment (the undersea habitat sponsored by Jacques-Yves Cousteau). Later he joined CEMA in Marseilles (J.Y. Cousteau) to do research on breathing gases and to develop procedures for very deep dives (1000 m with animals; 500 m with humans) and was a test diver in the Saturation II simulated dive at 400 msw. From 1973 to 1986, he served with CG DORIS, an offshore and civil engineering commercial diving company. In 1986 he founded JCLP Hyperbarie, a global consultancy agency/ bureau specialized in

    matters related to life support and safety under pressure (commercial diving, tunnelling, space and hyperbaric medicine). He has been involved in more than 75 tunneling projects, many with mixed gasses, up to 6.9 bar and as well as in saturation diving technology. Although retired, he is still teaching physiology and technology of diving- and hyperbaric medicine at several universities in France and all over the world. He is a National Instructor for SCUBA diving (Air, Nitrox and Trimix) and holds a deep sea commercial diver certification since 1974. He has published many papers in magazines, books and international congresses etc., and often speaks at international congresses on different topics concerning diving, hyperbaric medicine and compressed gas work.

    Rienk Rienks graduated in medicine in 1981 and was confirmed as cardiologist in 1986. He has been trained at the Utrecht University Hospital. Since 1983 working at the Utrecht Medical Centre, UMC, he obtained his doctorate in 1991 on a dissertation on the applications of lasers in cardiology. Detached to the Centraal Militair Hospitaal in Utrecht since 1995, he cares for military personnel. His main interest lies in diving, aeromedical and sports cardiology. Considered a national authority on hypo- and hyperbaric cardiology he fills several consultancies and was member of the board of the Dutch Society for Sports Medicine, VSG, and participates in several committees of the Dutch Society for Cardiology (NVvC) and VSG. He is member of the UHMS. He started to dive in 1982 during his tenure as a resident in Curacao. He is PADI and NAUI certified, advanced open water, rescue, Nitrox.

    Jacques Regnard graduated as MD and in Sport Medicine, and later in Diving and Hyperbaric Medicine at the university Ren Descartes (Paris). He was involved in field and laboratory studies about human physiology during cold exposure and exercising. Conducted pulmonary functional testing in University hospitals. Published research studies about lung function, bronchial reactivity, pulmonary heat exchanges and vascular airway behaviour (PhD in 1990). He then studied autonomic cardiovascular control in health and disease. AS professor of Physiology, University of Franche Comt from 1993, he teaches Physiology, directed PhD degrees, and has set up functional testing of vascular function. Author of original papers of respiratory, cardiovascular, and exercise physiology. The recent publications and current works deal in particular with integrated cardiovascular, renal and

    respiratory responses to immersion and diving, with concomitant influences of hyperoxia and autonomic/endocrine stimulations. Member of EUBS, the Socit de Mdecine Subaquatique et Hyperbare de langue franaise and of the Socit de Physiologie. He was formerly SCUBA diver.

    Nico Schellart graduated as biologist and specialized in physiological and biomedical physics. He investigated visual information processing of the retina, resulting in a PhD in 1973 (University of Amsterdam). He is an associate professor with the dept. of Biomedical Engineering and Physics of the AMC and was associate editor of a bioengineering journal. He has investigated information processing of the visual and auditory system in the brain, with animals and with humans by fundamental and clinical EEG and MEG research. His neuroscience studies have been published in some 50 papers, 80 abstracts and 10 contributions in textbooks and published an electronic free textbook in biomedical physics. He has studied the brain and the visual system under hypoxic and hyperoxic conditions both in the lab and in the field, including pre-cordial Doppler studies, and recommends HBO treatment for patients with cerebral radiation damage.

    He published these dysbaric and HBOT studies in e.g. Cancer, J Appl Physiol and UHM, and in conference proceedings (like EUBS and UHMS) and is regularly reviewer of journals in applied, sports and environmental medicine. He teaches diving physiology. He is member of UHMS and EUBS and often participated with contributions in their annual meetings. Also, he has tested the technical and physiological performance of dozens of dive computers (www.duikresearch.org), and is a recreational scuba- and formerly a free diver.

    Adel Taher, a diving instructor and diving medical specialist at the time, he was the driving force behind the multi-place, multi-lock chamber in Sharm el Sheik as he saw the need for a facility to specialize in diving related accidents. The chamber was built in the USA. He is, in addition to being director of the Hyperbaric Medical Centre in Sharm el Sheik also the founder and director of the diving chamber of Dahab. With over 200 diver-HBO treatments per year, he is without any doubt world leader and trained many physicians in hyperbaric medicine. Dr Adel Taher is member of many international medical diving committees, and lectures about his work at universities, courses, etc. all over the world. He is also the director of DAN-Egypt, a member of the UHMS and of the EUBS. He was the driving force behind the EUBS Annual Scientific Meeting in Sharm el Sheik in 2007 and a recognized invited speaker at their congresses.

    Diving still is his passion. He worked intensively on diver education and raising the awareness of dive professionals and divers regarding proper management of dive accidents in remote areas and the proper utilization of normobaric oxygen. The Hyperbaric Medical Centre in Sharm hosts dive medical specialists from all over the world to offer hands-on experience.

    Peter Westerweel is internist-hematologist, working at the Albert Schweitzer Hospital in Dordrecht. He has authored several international publications in diving medicine, although the majority if his scientific work has been focused on the role of bone marrow derived progenitor cells in renal and cardiovascular disease. He has obtained his PhD at the University Medical Centre in Utrecht, where he was subsequently employed as a postdoctoral researcher. He worked at the Weill Cornell Medical Centre in New York, USA, as a visiting fellow. He is a diving physician with the Dutch Society for Diving Medicine and member of the board of the society. He also is a consultant for the Diving Medical Centre of the Dutch Navy. He has participated in the development of several national guidelines in diving medicine, including those on diving with diabetes and diving with antiplatelet and anticoagulant drugs. He is the

    main investigator of the DIDIH (Diving with Disorders in Hemostasis) study, building a large database of comorbidity and medication used by Dutch and Belgian divers. He is an enthusiastic scuba diver and active PADI Open Water and Specialty Instructor, diving in the Netherlands year-round, while enjoying a tropical underwater excursion when the opportunity arises.
