Diving and Subaquatic Medicine is a concise and clinically authoritative guide to all aspects of diving medicine. It encompasses the full range of diving disorders exhibited by both amateur and professional deep sea divers, presenting each medical disorder from an historical, etiological, clinical, pathological, preventative and therapeutic perspective. Explanations are interspersed with relevant case histories, illustrations, boxed summaries and highlighted key points for rapid reference, whilst introductory chapters on physics, physiology, and equipment make the book invaluable reading for those new to the field. The new edition has been completely revised throughout to include the latest research and diving data, as well as important coverage of newly described diseases of diving, modern types of diving and diving equipment, and free and indigenous diving. Comprehensive appendices contain vital diving data.
