Forum – Dive Medicine

Diving puts considerable stress on one’s cardiovascular system, ears, and lungs. Unexpected events while diving, diminished functional reserve, and pre-existing medical illnesses increase the risk of a diving accident. As such, a properly conducted medical examination to determine diving fitness, followed by appropriate counselling, can make a life-threatening diving accident less likely and more enjoyable. This forum will help divers understand the best practice methods to apply before and during a dive.
