DAN Offers New DVD

Many divers may not know that someone can get decompression illness even while following safe diving rules. To better educate divers, DAN has created a new DVD about DCI and what to do if you suspect a diver has it.

Joel Dovenbarger, Vice President of DAN Medical Services, said the best way for all divers to learn comes from the experiences of other divers. “This new DVD from DAN will help divers recognize the signs and symptoms of a variety of dive-related issues and be better prepared to respond appropriately,” Dovenbarger said.

Dive centers or dive clubs can request the free DVD from DAN. It features a 40-minute presentation by Marty McCafferty, DAN Medical Informational Specialist. Use the DVD as part of your dive training programs, at your next dive club meeting or at dive gatherings.

The DVD emphasizes that the symptoms of DCI are similar to other medical conditions, such as a heart attack or upset stomach, so only a physician is qualified to make a diagnosis. The diver has three responsibilities:

to recognize the signs and symptoms;
to provide standard care within their levels of training; and
to help transfer the injured diver to a higher level of care.
Denial is the most common reason for delay in seeking assistance. Injured divers usually call DAN because their symptoms will not go away. Amazingly almost 15 percent of injured divers continue to dive after initial DCI symptoms are recognized.

DAN wants to educate divers in recognizing DCI and seeking immediate medical evaluation, which improves and shortens the treatment and reduces the chances of long-term problems. The risk of DCI increases as divers dive deeper, stay down longer, ascend faster, or shorten their surface intervals.

cheers...

ahahaa... I love malaysian :D

anyway, this is a free copy... DAN gives it out for free to members... even shipping also free.
so, if u r a member u can call the DAN hotline in US... but i don't know whether will it be free for international shipping  :D

anyway... i'll bring it back :)

i've watched the DVD last nite... 1 point caught my attention...

symptoms of DCS will subside from 24hrs to 72 hrs after diving.. because all bubbles have left the body ...
according to the speaker, DCS is not a virus... and will not bug the patient for weeks, months or years... :)
