Section 1. SCUBA DIVING INFORMATION
Section 2. PADI DIVER MEDICAL STATEMENT
It is your responsibility to check with your physician to ensure that you are fit and healthy to undertake the expedition and to participate in the scuba diving portion of the trip. Wild Earth Expeditions highly recommend that you do a physical check up by your Physician prior to the expedition, or at least on an annual (12 month) basis. This is solely for your benefit and to ensure that you are fit to dive. You MUST complete the PADI Dive Medical Statement to enrol in the scuba diving portion of this expedition.
Diving is an exciting and demanding activity. When performed correctly, applying correct techniques, it is relatively safe. When established safety procedures are not followed, however, there are increased risks.
To scuba dive safely, you should not be extremely overweight or out of condition. Diving can be strenuous under certain conditions. Your respiratory and circulatory systems must be in good health. All body air spaces must be normal and healthy. A person with coronary disease, a current cold or congestion, epilepsy, a severe medical problem or who is under the influence of alcohol or drugs should not dive. If you have asthma, heart disease, other chronic medical conditions or you are taking medications on a regular basis, you MUST consult your doctor before participating in this expedition, and should on a regular basis thereafter. Improper use of scuba equipment can result in serious injury.
