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.
