Now in its 4th edition Diving & Subaquatic Medicine remains the leading text on diving and the human body. Completely revised, this edition covers established diving disorders as well as newly described diseases of diving medicine, modern types of diving and equipment, and free diving. Each medical condition is discussed from historical, aetiological, clinical, pathological, preventative and therapeutic aspects in an informative but accessible style. Vital reading for doctors, paramedics, diving organisations and anyone with a serious interest in how diving affects the body, and methods of treatment.
Whilst a lot of the text is technical, the non-medical diver will gain hugely from this book. It is extremely well written and much of it is digestible to the lay person.
