What do you do if you’re diving and someone you’re diving with gets the bends? How long
should you wait before flying after a deep dive? These are a few of the questions that are answered at
Doc’s Diving Medicine Web site. The “Doc” in question here is Edmond
Kay, who is a Diving Medical Officer for the University of Washington, and also Medical Director for the
Divers Institute in Seattle.
As someone who has been diving for almost 12 years (and got certified in Seattle), I found the info on this site
very useful. You know how fast knowledge can fade if you don’t use it regularly. This is a nice little site to
check out on a Friday while you’re waiting for the day to wind down. By the way, he also has his book,
Scuba Explained, available to
buy online, but also large portions seem
downloadable, which will tax your office printer, but makes good reading.
