Navidyne And Medical Advisory Systems Provide Free Introductory Medical Service

Ships fitted with Navidyne's INMARSAT ship terminal can now obtain free emergency medical advisory services by satellite.

An agreement has been reached between Navidyne and Medical Advisory Systems, Inc.

(MAS), to offer four months of free medical support to all customers purchasing Navidyne's ESZ-8000 Satellite Communicator. MAS is a United States company providing medical support to vessels at sea through INMARSAT and other radio systems. MAS operates a Medical Response Center near Washington, D.C., staffed 24 hours a day by physicians and other medical and communications specialists, offering instant medical diagnosis and recommendations for treatment for accident or illness aboard ship.

According to Navidyne vice president for corporate development, Sanford Jones, the availability of instant medical support via satellite can have a significant impact on safety at sea. In addition, the INMARSAT-MAS link can produce considerable cost savings. In many cases, with prompt medical diagnosis and first aid instruction, a vessel can proceed to the next scheduled port. It has been estimated that as many as one-third of all medical evacuations could be avoided.
