Product description

From the Publisher

Many of the Q&As in this volume appeared in Sport Diver magazine or the acclaimed Tanked Up magazine. Many others are siphoned from the enormous number of email queries an institution like the London Diving Chamber can't help but accumulate over a decade or so.

In answering these queries, Dr Jules Eden and Dr Oliver Firth have brought their unique expertise in diving medicine to bear on subjects ranging from "How do I equalise properly?" through to "Can I dive with a gunshot wound?" and covering perennial favourites such as asthma, diarrhoea and fire coral in between. What we've tried to create is something you can read at home or take on a liveaboard and which will be both practical and entertaining. That way you can refer to it if you think you're developing a nasty ear infection and amuse yourself reading it if it turns out you won't be diving as a result.

From the Author

Rob Hunt: We all love diving, and whilst we may not claim to be experts at the activity ourselves (I do: I'm brilliant at it. Except when I forget to put my weightbelt on), we each probably know at least a hundred different people who do. This is why it may come as a surprise to discover that there aren't that many experts on diving medicine around. GPs rarely know anything about it: there's no reason why they should as they have to spend the majority of their days sitting in an office examining people's itchy bits; most divers aren't doctors: being able to drag someone out of the water and perform CPR, whilst undeniably useful, isn't the same as being able to assess somebody's fitness to dive after a heart bypass; and as for divers that are doctors: well, they won't necessarily be able to tell you whether it's OK to dive on warfarin or whether the tingling in your hand is due to nitrogen bubbles or a herniated disc, unless they're hyperbaric specialists.

That's what you get with Jules and Oli: specialist diving knowledge backed up with years of experience.
