Thread: Recovering An Unconscious Diver From Depth

    Recovering An Unconscious Diver From Depth

    Hi Lads,

    Is there any recommendation for recovering an unconscious diver from depth (open water) where deco obligation took place? To make it easier and avoid confusion let say a 70m dive with 30 minutes bottom time where:

    A) diver passed out in 5th minute since submerged

    B) diver passed out in 25th minute since submerged

    Would you take the risk and escort the body all the way up in both cases?
    Would you send the body up feet first (sounds crazy to me)?

    I was just wondering what would be the best approach.

    All the best,
    Frank

    Yeap, that video was good. Just the discussion was very poor.
    Discussing rescuing methods is not so popular in this part of world. You should see another thread. Feet first ascent was the only method that was "described".

    This was preventively removed several times. Perhaps people don't like answering such topics.

    Excellent threads. With so many heavy hitters contributing, the lack of ego is laudable.
