    Study of Health of Rebreather Divers

    Help Wanted from Rebreather Divers

    I'm undertaking a research project looking at the health of rebreather divers and their dive practices comparing them to a similar population of open circuit divers.

    The underlying motive is to see whether there is any significant differences between OC and rebreather divers that might account for some of the increased mortality seen in rebreather divers.

    I'm using Scubaboard and other sites to recruit OC divers and hope to get loads of completed questionnaires from rebreather divers here. I have a target of 500 rebreather divers which is a big ask from you.

    Hopefully we will develop a nice, sexy interface to collect the data but for now, PLEASE download the attachment, which is a form created in Word. Please fill in the questions by entering data, checking tick boxes or making selections from drop down menus, save it and email it back to me at steve@diving-network.com

    The study has been accepted by a UK Research Ethics Committee. The data will be stripped from your email and the email deleted. No personally identifiable data will be kept. The data will be used exclusively for medical research and remain in my safe keeping.

    The whole process will take you 5 minutes of your valuable time (and several months of mine to analyse).:D


    Best Wishes,


    Steve

    I sent you my questionnaire from Scubaboard. I assume you don't need it again. Please let us know what you find out.

    Well done, just sent the form.

    As a personal note, I would also ask when's last complete medical visit.

    Anyway I do that (also heart and lungs) once a year.

    Cheers
