Ship's medicine chest on Yugoslav ship.Bull Inst Marit Trop Med Gdynia. 1990; 41(1-4):167-71.BI
An insufficient medical care during sea voyage presents a great risk for the health and life seafarers at sea. Apart from an appropriate education of seamen, radio-medical services, and a good medical guide, ship's medicine chest is an important component of the primary health care on ships. The standardization and unification of these medicine chests, which all major maritime countries except Yugoslavia have already accepted, is essential. The authors present a proposal for the standardization of the list of drugs carried on Yugoslav ships.
