MODULE 2 - TREATMENT
It has to be borne in mind that this module is intended to be purchased with MODULE 1 if extended deep sea cruising is envisaged. This would necessitate a larger vessel and more crew. There would also be a need for longer treatment until assistance is available. Thus some items are repeated from Module 1 as additional quantities would be needed. Guidance for use of some of the items and particularly the medicines that should be obtained should be sought form the Shipís Captainís Medical Guide.

MODULE 4 - SUPPLEMENTARY MEDICINES
For extended voyages there has to be the ability to diagnose and treat many minor ailments, serious conditions and accidents possibly for lengthy periods. Using the MCA regulations in conjunction with the Shipís Captainís Medical Guide we have prepared a list of medicines required. These medicines will need to be obtained via a prescription or signed order from a medical practitioner. Please be aware that laws governing supply of medicines differs from jurisdiction to jurisdiction and local advice may be necessary. This is especially the case if Controlled Drugs such as Morphine are required. Import and export licences may also be required.
Therefore Module 4 contains the recommended list and the requisition letter. The modular box and tray inserts are available to hold the contents once obtained.
