    Immersion Pulmonary Edema 6/5/13, Umm Gamar, Hurghada, Egypt

    Might not be what you want to hear but:

    Last year one of our club divers suffered an IPO (written oedema in Australia) on a scuba dive. This resulted in recovery from the water and O2 (the correct actions to take) followed by a helicopter flight to the local hyperbaric chamber. He did display a frothy pink sputum and had indicated similar issues on the dive with his breathing.

    The advice given was to stop diving, the odds given of surviving an IPO were 50% for the first instance and almost zero for the second.

    I'd suggest that you discuss the incident with a dive doctor and make sure he understands why you are concerned as it's not clear if you asked for clearance to dive due to fitness or because of the incident.

    All the best with whichever option you choose to pursue.

    Guys, thanks for the comments, next step is to talk to an experienced dive doctor and explore the possibilities, no rash decisions and no going back in until everything is straightened out!

    Glad you are ok and shared the complete event so others may learn.

    One observation is the signals.

    I come from a team based diving background and for us the "thumb" means "THUMB" now. No discussion and talked about on the surface afterwards if needed.

    Even so it would only have taken 2 secs for you to have been given the signal of thumb and forefinger to indicate - yep thumb it and exit/anchor is that way. Your reply of thumb again to that should have been end of discussion - begin surfacing now.

    Communication and mutual respect for decisions like thumbing it within the dive team/group is so important
