Buy Safety & Rescue for Diver's - BSAC

Preventing accidents is a prime concern of all sport divers. Safety precautions and procedures should be meticulously observed and if an accident does occur, divers should know the appropriate action to take quickly and efficiently. This manual provides a wealth of practical information to help novice and experienced diver alike cope with diving emergency situations.

Starting with dive planning and the factors that can help prevent accidents, the book moves to first aid and the treatment of conditions from burns and broken bones to hypothermia, decompression illness and shock. In a separate section on dangerous marine life, detailed advice is given on how to treat bites and stings. Major rescue techniques are dealt with from towing an unconscious diver in the water to assisted ascents, from rescuing an injured diver from the depths to landing him on boat or beach. The books covers rescue management from A-Z, the proper use of rescue equipment and aftercare. Throughout, the emphasis is on what can be done by sport divers at the scene of an incident until qualified medical care is available.
