Hey there future buddies!!

Post Number:#1  Postby divedoc » Tue Nov 07, 2006 10:25 pm

Hey there guys...Just registered as a member yesterday...Was invited by Snafu DeDiver. Thanks, pal! May the force be wit U!!

I'm Divedoc, currently working as a Dive Medical Officer in Lumut Hospital. Knew Snafu when he came over to Lumut Hospital for his dive medicals last year. We talked and talked about diving, and just recently he introduced me to this excellent site for avid malaysian divers, and invited me to be the advisor for health and medical issues related to diving. Thanks again pal, I'm honoured for the invite!

Got my quals as a DMO from US Navy Dive School. Since then has been treating quite a number of DCS cases in Lumut Hospital, be it military, commercial or recreational divers.

Anyway, as I said, I'll try to answer any Q's posted to me regarding health and medical issues related to diving. And vice-versa, I hope i can learn from you guys too about the technical aspects of diving..

Adios...

Hey What's cooking Doc?

Welcome to MUW!! It is great to have a professional member on this forum at least now we can get real comments on a diving medical problem rather than just comments that is just taken from the internet which is cut and paste anyway... not that it is not right but at least now we have a "real" doctor here.... So happy!!  ::)
I feel so blessed,priviledged and a bit safer now that i have access to someone as professional as yourself to be here to give us all free diving medical consultation.... Thank you for your future contribution to all the members and may the force be with you too!!!
So good to have you on board with us at MUW.

Doc, I promise you that i will be a safe diver - NO Deco Diving for me!!!!  ;D

Hi Doc. Welcome on board. I think soon we will have a section just for you for Q&A on Dive Med.

My regards to Kol Dr Halim...tell him Kapt Rahmat Tun Haniff sends his regards.

hey guys, thanks for the welcome...

For Jim and SeaDemon, Kol Dr Halim's retiring in December this year (don't tell him that I told you that!), he's got a better offer on the greener pastures...
Looks like he will get to dive with you guys more often now since he will no longer be in the service.

First question: I have tinnitus. Would a stay in the chamber help?
