Dr. Lance's Dive Safety & Medicine Video Series

A word about dive accidents that do not require a visit to the ER

By SCIAA's Dive Safety and Control Board

Sometimes when diving, things happen that dont merit a trip to the emergency room, but still need to be addressed.  This video discusses what care you can access when you have a dive injury that does not require a decompression chamber or a trip to the ER. 

The Dive Safety page of Dr. Lance's website is updated with documents, videos, links and other information to increase awareness and safety in the dive community.  Video topics include information about emergency action plans, how to access the hyperbaric unit for evaluation and treatment, field management of marine and dive-related medical problems, among many other topics. In adhering to and promoting safe diving, we want to share these materials with the Hobby Diver community. 

We encourage all of our volunteers and licensees in the Hobby Diver Program to check out these resources on his website via the links above. In future publications, we will feature some of these videos in this section of the newsletter.
