Common medical conditions and how they might affect diving
DDRC Healthcare doctors will be building a list of responses to various medical conditions, concerns and issues which are most commonly raised by divers. We will be adding new content all the time, so please do check back. You may also be interested in some of the Health of Divers studies that our Research Team have completed and published.
If the information that you require is not found below, please get in touch with details of your medical concern and background, via email to email@example.com
Please note this is an e-mail box with shared access by any one of our doctors throughout our busy week. We will aim to get back to you as soon as possible.
