The team members that I talked with last fall said that they had a Dr. willing to be on the crew. By checking his crew from his website, I learned that he has a nursing student & a nuclear med. tech. onboard. As for an IV being a requirement, they seemed to think so. The body just can't replentish the extremely deep dehydration that these folks are subject to.

Here's the coolest link to follow the race by.
