The longstanding need for a substantial clinical resource in diving medicine has been met by this book from the Undersea Medical Society. The 38 contributors and 15 reviewers are all authorities, and the book is well edited.
Millions of sportsmen and women now dive with a self-contained underwater breathing apparatus, and along with Navy, commercial, and scientific divers, are subject to medical problems unfamiliar to most physicians. Some conditions, like gas embolism and decompression sickness, can result in permanent injury or death if not promptly diagnosed and properly treated.
This guide was written primarily for physicians who are divers themselves
