The International Meeting on Ultrasound for Diving Research organized at the Swedish Armed Forces Diving and Naval Medicine Centre, Karlskrona, Sweden on 25th & 26th August 2015 has been an overwhelming success. 30 Delegates from 16 different countries (4 continents), had a great 2 day meeting where the latest developments in bubble detection were discussed. With great help of the Swedish Diving and Navalmedicine Centre there was a excellent session where all delegates could practice their bubble detection skills on navy divers. As discussed in the closing session results of this meeting should lead to a set of guidelines and standards for bubble monitoring methodology in diving research.

The increassing demand for a Scott Haldane Level 1 (basic) course in English resulted in the development of the Level 1 part I and the level 1 part II course in English. The complete basic course is now available for all English speaking medical doctors. At least one course per year, organized in The Netherlands, will still be in Dutch, but all other level 1 courses are available in English too.
