ABOUT Assessment of Diving Medical Fitness for Scuba Divers and Instructors
A dive instructor is the first person to assess the general health and medical fitness of a prospective diver before he or she enters the water. Whether the diver is a recreational scuba diver, commercial, military or research diver, the same evaluation of physical fitness will apply.
Internationally recognized authors, surgeons and researchers Dr. Peter B. Bennett (Founder and President Emeritus of Divers Alert Network), Dr. Frans J. Cronje (Executive Director Emeritus of DAN Southern Africa), Dr. Ernest S. Campbell (www.scuba-doc.com), Dr. Neal Pollock (Research Director, DAN), and Dr. Alessandro Marroni (Founder and President of DAN Europe) collaborated on this book. It provides instructors and divers a clear and concise reference addressing the principles behind the necessary medical considerations and related decisions on diving fitness. It will help instructors and active divers determine when the input from a diving physician is mandatory and how to sensibly screen prospective divers for medical problems.
This book is also an excellent reference for first-time divers and experienced divers who may have medical questions related to their personal health and fitness. It is designed to provide advice in relatively simple non-medical language.
