The Future of Diving October 21, 2009

I picked up this pointer on the Ontario Diving web site.  It’s  the proceedings of the Baromedical and Environmental Physiology Group of the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, 18–19 December 2008, in Trondheim, Norway and looks pretty interesting, although it’s still downloading as I write this. It  has an appendix the entire seminal document on  decompression sickness (“The Prevention of Compressed Air Illness”) by John Scott Haldane, which makes up about a third of its almost 300 pages.

I was pleased to read the  following sentence in one of the papers: “Nevertheless, there is no clear evidence, to date, that diving, in the absence of serious acute damage, leads to long-term neurological dysfunction.”  That’s good news, I think.
