    Listen To Your Heart: Cardiac Health Research Update
    1 p.m. EST
    https://zoom.us/j/94422999305?pwd=cHh4WkUzYjFMUTMzTnRjZ1NoNHNEUT09

    The average age of divers is steadily increasing, and so is the prevalence of (often undetected) cardiovascular disease. Cardiac disease is associated with 20 to 30 percent of recreational diver fatalities. Immersion alone triggers a variety of physiological responses, which might be compounded by other factors such as cold, hyperoxia and hypercapnia. In this presentation we will break down the complex effects of diving on cardiovascular function and look into some recent research on the subject, including an ongoing DAN study.

    Disinfection and Infection Control in the Dive Business
    2 p.m. EST
    https://zoom.us/j/94636809064?pwd=R2IyYVBLRy9nNmRhb3NPditILzZ5Zz09

    The COVID-19 pandemic has prompted dive operators worldwide to improve their gear and facility disinfection practices. It has highlighted important considerations that will continue to be relevant to dive operations even after it is over. This presentation will cover proper daily disinfection procedures (both general and specific to COVID-19), infection control measures, information that should be provided to clients and more.

    Dive safety is of interest to all divers and dive pros, and it means many different things: diving within the scope of your training, conducting predive checks, adhering to your dive plan — and much more. In this presentation we’ll review injury and fatality data from DAN’s most recent annual diving report through the lens of safe diving practices, gleaning tips on how to be a safer diver.

    DAN Instructor/Instructor Trainer 2020 Update
    4 p.m. EST

    This is the annual update for instructors and instructor trainers who teach DAN first aid courses.

    Accident Review: Did Your Equipment Fail You, or Did You Fail Your Equipment?
    1 p.m. EST
    https://zoom.us/j/99942210050?pwd=YXYzSTR3V2R6NVR2b2NLeURjZFVLUT09

    A review of recent equipment failures has provided some answers about what — or who — was primarily responsible. While accidents are generally unpredictable, most failures are associated with human behavior. This can be addressed through heightened awareness, consistency in following training, refreshing skills and ensuring that equipment is inspected and maintained appropriately. Learn how and why equipment failures occur through an analysis of recent events.

    COVID-19 and Diving: November 2020 Update
    2 p.m. EST

    On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization declared the novel coronavirus disease, COVID-19, a pandemic. It has had a profound impact on the global economy, and nonessential leisure activities, including tourism, have suffered devastating effects. Divers worldwide have expressed significant concerns about the disease’s implications for fitness to dive. Here is what we know eight months into the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Snorkeling and Breath-Hold Diving Fatalities
    3 p.m. EST

    More people participate in breath-hold diving and snorkeling than scuba diving. And while scuba diving might appear to be riskier, breath-hold diving and snorkeling are associated with more fatalities. However, many of these fatalities can be prevented through simple measures and proper training. In this presentation we’ll discuss the risks of snorkeling and breath-hold diving, the characteristics of participants, and known and suspected causes of deaths.
