A Few Scuba Diving Safety Tips
Scuba diving is no doubt a wonder sport it offers a great way to experience the mysterious underworld of any ocean or lake. One must take a scuba certification classes to become a competent scuba diver. These classes can prepare the newcomers to overcome any dangers they might face underwater.
Most people might think that it is the sharks or big fish one should watch out for underwater however, sharks and other large fish are not responsible for almost any scuba deaths that occur each year, the Diver’s Alert Network says that most shark attacks occur when the victims are standing or swimming close to the shore.
The bigger danger associated with scuba diving comes if a diver has not been properly trained or certified. Such a person may ascend too quickly to the water’s surface; this can result in dreaded condition known as the bends, a decompression sickness with effects that can range from discomfort and vomiting to paralysis and even death. Another one is a diver who didnt master underwater breathing.
Diving injuries are often related to ear problems and sinus problems. A person may experience middle ear pain and discomfort due to the pressure changes inherent in scuba diving; this is referred to as a “squeeze.” by the doctors. Other typical injuries associated with scuba diving are cuts and scrapes from fish, coral, and shipwrecks.
