Diving Medical & Fitness – Are you fit to dive?
Over the years many of our divers came to us with questions regarding some medical conditions and health concerns in relation to scuba diving. These divers didn’t have the time or opportunity to visit a dive physician prior to their vacation or some real or imaginary symptoms showed up during their travels.
Now we are in the lucky position to have a scuba diving medical practitioner affiliated with us, Dr. Dave Smith, or Dr. Dave, as he is most commonly called.
If you will be doing a diving course or experience with us you will need to complete the medical form above. If you can honestly answer no to all questions then you are good to go, if you answer yes to any of them then you will need to get clearance from a Doctor before we can take you into the water. Be honest in your answers, your health is at risk if you hide anything, most likely the Doctor will give you consent to dive anyway, in which case they need to sign the second page of the form. Already certified? Then no need for the form, but it is wise to get yourself a check up periodically before diving.
