    Corrolation between CCR and Heart Attacks?

    Hi,

    After reading a number of threads about accidents, I am really concerned by the number of accidents classified as Heart Attack, Embolism or simply Unknown.

    I would really like to understand if any corrolation has been established between diving CCR and these diseases and how I could possibly act on this besides the obvious healthy life and physical training.

    Kindly note that I am looking for scientific studies, books or articles, not opinions ;)

    Thanks in advance
    Thomas

    Since nobody seems to have any scientific studies, books or articles, may I offer the opinion that I had the heart attack before I got the rebreather to save time later.

    Rebreathers are expensiv, the travel to the ww destinations are expensive, all other parts (lime, sensors, etc)
    A few divers are older than others and the the risk of getting a heart attack increased....

    I think that some rebreather fatalities are classified as heart attacks when the coroners don't know the cause of the death...

    Very considerate of you Nigel, I don't think you will have many following suit though!

    I agree a very convenient explanation specialy if one do not wants to penatltize the rebreather also.
