Expertise in Action

Diving medicine experts are extremely rare due to the specialised nature of their work. They are usually hired as consultants for government or commercial missions involving submarines. They are required to determine a diver’s fitness to dive, and in providing hyperbaric oxygen therapy for divers experiencing decompression sickness or embolisms.

  • The quantity of documentary material to be reviewed
  • Whether there are reports of other experts to be reviewed and commented on in detail
