  • Eighty years of CIRM. A journey of commitment and dedication in providing maritime medical assistance. [Journal Article]
  • IMInt Marit Health 2016; 67(4):187-195
  • Mahdi SS, Amenta F
  • CONCLUSIONS: The results achieved by the Centre over 80 years include medical assistance to 81,016 patients on board ships (as well as on small islands and aircraft), with more than 500,000 medical messages received and transmitted. CIRM from its inception was organised into a medical service, a telecommunications service and a studies section. In 2002 the Centre was recognised as the Italian Telemedical Maritime Assistance Service (TMAS). In the 2010 the Centre was reorganised as a structure articulated in 4 departments, namely maritime telemedicine, telecommunication, research and occupational medicine. This was achieved to cover the different activities related to comprehensive health protection of seafarers. The 24-h continuous medical service is provided by doctors at the CIRM headquarters. The doctor on duty gives instructions for managing the case and continues to follow the patient with subsequent appointments until recovery or landing. In case of emergencies CIRM co-ordinates the transfer of patients assisted on board ships to a hospital ashore. CIRM has developed innovative approaches for the treatment of diseases and accidents on board of seagoing vessels by introducing standard telemedicine equipment on board ships, allowing the transmission of biomedical data from ships to the Centre. These new solutions are aimed at bringing a significant improvement of medical care for seafarers.
  • Hypertension among Danish seafarers. [Journal Article]
  • IMInt Marit Health 2016; 67(4):196-204
  • Tu M, Jepsen JR
  • CONCLUSIONS: Hypertension is a major health issue among Danish seafarers. In addition to ensuring antihypertensive treatment when needed, individual and collective prevention should address lifestyle issues as well as physical and psychosocial exposures at sea.
