DAN medics and researchers answer your questions about dive medicine.
When diving offshore, always carry emergency signaling devices such as a surface marker buoy, signal mirror and emergency strobe.
DAN promotes safe chamber operations with research, education and training. Learn more about recompression chamber safety.
Richard Moon, M.D., has spent his career studying phenomena of great interest to scuba divers — including decompression sickness. Learn more about the researcher Richard Moon.
What is saturation diving? When the diver breathes in inert gas, it dissolves into the body’s tissues and reaches equilibrium with the ambient pressure at the diver’s depth.
Instead of simply listing requirements relevant to the safe recompression of injured recreational divers, DAN identified real, likely hazards, quantified their significance and presented mitigation guidance for each.
