Dr. Spike Briggs, managing director of MSOS, a medical support company for yachts, will create the new edition of “The Ship Captain’s Medical Guide”, due to be published in 2018 to celebrate its 150th anniversary.
“It’s the MCA’s medical bible,” Dr. Briggs said. “To be asked to help rewrite it, I’m honored really.”
Dr. Briggs published the Skipper’s Medical Emergency Handbook in 2008, and is working on the second edition due out next year. MSOS has a booth in the American Pavilion.
