Beating the Bends

The Diver's Guide to Avoiding Decompression Sickness Beating-the-Bends

"When I go diving I have two goals: Number one, I want to avoid an accident. Number two, I want to have fun. Having fun is the easy part." - From the Foreword 

Avoiding injury can be easy too - as long as we know what to look for. Perhaps more than any other reason, that's why Alex Brylske wrote this book. Beating the Bends provides a wealth of life-saving information in a succinct and easy-to-understand format. READ MORE...

NOAA Diving Manual - Chapter 4

Diving Physiology

Chapter 4 of the NOAA Diving Manual 5th Edition provides an overview of how the human bodyNOAAbundle responds to the varied conditions of diving. Knowledge of diving physiology contributes to diving safety and enables a diver to recognize diving-related medical symptoms when problems occur. Topics covered in Chapter 4 include:

  • Tissue Use of Oxygen
  • Hypoxia, signs and symptoms
  • Direct and Indirect Effects of Pressure During Descent & Ascent
  • Ears, Sinuses, Eyes, Lungs
  • Arterial Gas Embolism (AGE)
  • Decompress Sickness (DCS)
  • And much, much more!


Basic Decompression Theory and Application, 3rd Edition

The intent of this book is to present a working view of decompression in diving, mostly focusing on theory with application, including equations. Discussed are the mechanics of tissue gas exchange, bubbles and nucleation, supersaturation, perfusion and diffusion. Such aspects are simplified, and for some certainly oversimplified. Also included are chapters on "Mixed Gases and Decompression;" "Decompression Tables, Meters and Models;" "Decompression Risks and Statistics."

Topics span many disciplines, and the targeted audience is the commercial diver, hyperbaric scientist, doctor, physical scientist, technical diver, and dive instructor.  READ MORE..
