MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

"Safe Diving" focuses on basic medical fitness to dive. Written in an easy, readable style, it is essential reading for all scuba divers, rescue divers, dive instructors, DMOs and hyperbaric chamber operators, and should form part of the library of all dive training agencies, dive resorts and live-aboard dive boats. The text covers the full spectrum of conditions and ailments that affect divers, from the cardiovascular, pulmonary and neurological requirements for diving to breathing mixtures, inhaled gas contamination, heatstroke, hyperthermia, marine animal bites, vertigo underwater and diving during pregnancy. Diagrams highlight key aspects, such as ear barotrauma, while therapeutic decompression tables complement the chapters on acute decompression illness, deep diver rescue and emergency ascents. "Safe Diving" is endorsed by DAN Southern Africa.
