This book blends theoretical and scientific aspects with practical and directly applicable diving physiology and medical information.

Summary: Diving Science will help readers anticipate, recognize, and respond to the physical, physiological, and psychological stresses encountered in sport diving. The information will make it easier to manage each stage of a dive more safely and successfully. Whether on the surface or bottom, during descent or ascent, readers will know exactly what to do and when to do it. Detailed explanations on everything from what happens during on-gassing and off-gassing to first response interventions for medical problems of diving make Diving Science as essential as a wetsuit for any dive. Written by two experts in diving physiology and medicine, this book bridges the gap between the basics found in an introductory diving manual and the highly specialized content found in certain diving medicine texts. It includes details on what happens to the human body underwater as well as why and how it happens, insightful definitions, summary tables, clear illustrations, and case reports, making the material meaningful and applicable.
