    I do have to admit, it is very funny.......

    I do have to admit, it is very funny.... virtually the whole thing. I have reached the stage in relation to the Apoc where I just feel pity rather than anger when the distortions and half truths come...

    Hello,

    This thread has raised some interesting points which have been covered by others to some extent, but I'll just highlight a few of the important ones.

    In a system where the only people...

    Mike,

    If the case is carefully explained most doctors are happy, especially if they know that there will be a medical practitioner to supervise use of the medications at the other end. With Pete's...

    Christian,

    I'm of the school of thought that comes from being a specialist diving physician and the medical officer on 4 trips to Truk Lagoon.

    External ear infections are a subtantial and...

    Hello,

    I went looking for the source of the "hot shower" caution some years ago when writing a chapter for Bennett and Elliott. As far as I can tell it comes from a single case report of a diver...

    Others have mentioned the ear drops. TAKE HEED. You should have some alcohol / ascetic acid ear drying drops and use them after EVERY dive. Also, I would recommend seeing your GP for a bottle of...

    Gidday Iain,

    Whilst I agree with much of what you say, I think this one is a little unfair to Leigh et al mate. Hope the link works.

    Hello Adrian,

    I had to laugh to hear this quoted back on line:



    The second half of the statement is relevant. There is some good "stuff" to be found on the internet (though recognising it...

    OK,


    Whichever way you do it, Truk is wreck diving paradise.... and its not just the wrecks themselves and all the related history and the wreck - environment interaction. The shallow wrecks in...

    Iain,

    How about we just leave one of your chambers up on the stage with a big sign on it saying "this is all you need to know"?

    Rick Stanton is unmissable in my view.

    Would anyone like to do my talk for me so I can go??

    Hello Matt,

    This is the point that Brad seems incapable of understanding, but which is one of the primary messages of the Warkander paper: 2% inhaled CO2 is not fine.

    It is worthless arguing...
  14. Hello Brad (Alex), Allow me an attempt to...

    Hello Brad (Alex),

    Allow me an attempt to describe the relevant respiratory issues clearly and simply so that everyone is on the same page. Then I will examine the defences you make for the...

    Iain, just for your information, it is not nonsense. It is not Dan Warkander I have to deal with. When we publish manuscripts in scientific journals we almost always sign over the copyright to that...

    I got a super quick response.

    I have permission to send a copy of the Shykoff and Warkander pdf to divers interested in this issue. So, Iain and others, please pm me a private email address and I...

    Iain,



    The search engine probably thinks you are diving a rebreather whose scrubber breakthrough was tested to 2%, so it takes you to an appropriate site.



    No its not "that alone". I do...
  18. Update on debate over appropriate limit for scrubber breakthrough testing

    Hello,

    You may recall that one (of many) debates DL have had with others (including myself) has been over the issue of an appropriate end point for CO2 scrubber breakthrough testing. To summarise,...

    No, not at all. There is great difficulty putting a figure on it because it is all so context sensitive (diver themselves, whether they continue to work or not, the resistance of the bailout...

    Hello Peter,

    I have attached a Figure from Bennett and Elliott that David Doolette and I also used in our review of respiratory physiology underwater in Comprehensive Physiology. It shows maximum...

    Hello Chris,

    This is the first set of such guidelines ever published by an expert group and the UHMS recognises their importance. The training agencies are aware of their impending arrival, and...

    Hi Tony,

    No, I don't think its contradictory. With all due respect to your lifeguard, it is entirely possible that the improvement in ventilation was more to do with a change in the patient's...

    Hello Peter,

    This is a very interesting thread with lot of good input from a number of commentators. Unfortunately, I think your question is very difficult to answer. I can see why you have gone...
