Now in it's fourth edition, Diving and Subaquatic Medicine remains the leading text on diving medicine. This completely revised edition covers the newly described diseases of diving medicine, the modern types of diving and diving equipment, free and indigenous diving, as well as updating the previous edition's coverage of established diving disorders. Each medical disorder is discussed from an historical, aetiological, clinical, pathological, preventative and therapeutic perspective in the accessible but informative style that has made the previous editions so popular.
The principal disciplines addressed - diving medicine, occupational medicine and aquatic medicine - mean that the volume is vital reading for physicians, paramedics, navies, diving organisations and medical students at all levels. Those who know the book will waste no time in acquiring this update; those new to the text will soon find it a must for the personal bookshelf
