PSG denies Neymar requires surgery; Brazil doctor in Paris

first_img“Neymar is under the care of Paris Saint-Germain,” Edu said after a World Cup meeting in the Russian resort of Sochi. “Until Paris Saint-Germain decides on his future in terms of training or so on we will continue to wait. A doctor from Brazil has gone to accompany him and monitor the news from Paris Saint-Germain.”The injury comes with less than four months until Brazil opens its World Cup campaign against Switzerland on June 17.“We cannot think about the World Cup yet,” Edu said.PSG broke soccer’s transfer record last year by paying Barcelona 222 million euros ($260 million) to buy Neymar.Neymar was hurt on Sunday as the French league leader beat Marseille 3-0. After tests revealed he has a cracked fifth metatarsal in his right foot along with an ankle injury, reports suggested Neymar opted for surgery and he would be sidelined for up to two months.ADVERTISEMENT Steam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours Phivolcs records 2 ‘discrete weak ash explosions’ at Taal Volcano Metatarsal injuries are common in soccer and can sometimes lead to a lengthy absence from the pitch. After speaking with the club doctor, Emery said Neymar has a “small crack in the fifth metatarsal.”“We’ll see how things evolve in the coming days before making a decision with him,” he said.Emery did not say how long Neymar will be sidelined but insisted “there is a small option he can be ready for the match” against Madrid. PSG trails 3-1 from the first leg of the last-16 matchup in the premier European competition that Neymar was signed to win for the French capital club.Emery said he did not feel he made a mistake by letting Neymar play against Marseille despite the crucial Champions League match looming.“We normally try to protect him by planning things ahead with him, but it was normal to have him play against Marseille, it was an important game,” Emery said.Asked if PSG was pressured by Brazil in its dealing with Neymar’s injury, Emery said his team remains his priority.“The most important thing is us, although the World Cup matters to every player,” Emery said. “Neymar wants to play against Real Madrid and we are focusing on this.”Despite spending lavishly since they took over PSG in the summer of 2011, the club’s Qatari owners have so far failed in their bid to establish the club as a European force. PSG has been dominating the French league but has failed to get past the Champions League quarterfinals, losing in the round of 16 last year following a 6-1 humiliation at the hands of Barcelona in the second leg.

DD FEATURE SPECIAL – LIFE WITH THE ARRANMORE LIFEBOAT CREW

first_imgFather and son Jimmy and Leigh Early with RNLI first aid instructor Trevor Stevens.Life for RNLI Lifeboat voluntary crew members doesn’t stop when they come ashore from a “shout”. Once the lifeboat is safely back at anchor, the crew then attend training which ensures that each crew member can carry on saving lives at sea.The Arranmore Lifeboat crew look upon their service as something that is constantly evolving and are currently attending a first aid course at the lifeboat station. Competence based training is an integral part of each crew members role in their life saving work on the lifeboats. Each crew member can avail of training in various disciplines including navigation, boat handling, communications and at present first aid.Arranmore Voluntary crew practicing their first aid skillsThe RNLI prides itself on providing the best possible training for each crew member and are continually engaged in research to provide best practice for saving lives at sea.Casualty care is a crucial link in the search and rescue (SAR) chain of survival that allows lifeboat crew members to save lives at sea. Having utilised their previously learned skills to save lives and rescue casualties at sea, continued training assists crew members to provide casualties with the best possible chance of survival, often in a hostile, unforgiven environment and many miles from professional hospital based care.Maritime SAR medicine is a specialist field and the RNLI has a bespoke course that prepares crew to manage any emergency encountered in the operational field of the RNLI. The first aid course being provided to RNLI crew members throughout the British Isles and Ireland at present is specifically designed to depart, as far as practical from the mainstream occupational first aid courses and focus on providing crew members with the maximum amount of knowledge to deal with emergencies at sea.The training has a hands on approach rather than complex theory or diagnosis and empowers crew members to confidently and competently treat casualties and this approach is reinforced by a unique treatment check card, which takes the guesswork out of treating casualtiesThe type of emergencies lifeboat crew deal with are, at a basic level, similar to emergencies one encounters on shore, can involve loss of limbs, burns, breathing difficulties and heart problems but are sometimes many miles from a mainland hospital and only the expertise of the lifeboat crew, without having to rely on memory, because of the card reference system operated by the RNLI, can mean the difference between life and death.The course is accredited by the RNLI Medical and Survival Committee, The Trauma and Critical Care Group and is approved by The Royal College of Surgeons and the Paramedic Department.The system itself is highly regarded by many other emergency services as it is being continually reassessed and upgraded. The course is delivered at a time and place, usually at the local lifeboat station, which is convenient to crew members and is the last of this course to be delivered prior to the next upgrade in January 2014.The new changes will include a portable stretcher which can be accommodated in the smaller class inshore lifeboats, the introduction of the use of drugs to alleviate breathing difficulties, the use of more user friendly check cards and the reassessment of the treatment of head injuries at sea.RNLI trainer Trevor Stevens, said “The training which crew members receive is specially designed so that each crew member is guided by the same protocols no matter where, within the spectrum of the RNLI, they operate. We are confident that our voluntary crew can competently deal with any emergency, large or small to a high standard and it is the aim of the RNLI to provide the best possible training to our voluntary crew.”DD FEATURE SPECIAL – LIFE WITH THE ARRANMORE LIFEBOAT CREW was last modified: October 21st, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:ARRANMORE LIFEBOATcrewtraininglast_img read more
