    Simple and direct.

    I'm curious for more information about "Autopsy revealed high levels of stimulants and narcotics. ". Coffee? 5 hour energy drink? Controlled substance? The narcotics don't need an explanation.

    I have a vested interest in the effects of medication due to my back injury (work related) and the prescribed medication.

    wow, but in my limited experience and reading, seems most CCR fatalities have been user error of some sort.

    I was just involved in a fatality a few weeks ago, and am awaiting the results of an investigation of his RB. I sincerely pray its not user error as well.

    I made a laminate check list and always go down the list. And being a newbie beginning junior CCR diver, I dump the sofnolime at the end of the day, no matter how many dives I do that day. Of course the one thing I fear most is being killed by another car while driving to go diving.

    Reminds me when I was still skydiving. 99+% of deaths were attributed to human error rather than equipment failure. Not sure if that number is necessarily correct in CCR diving.

    I have one big problem with the article, though. It is titled "Statistics show…..". The author presented case studies. He offered none of his statistical analysis or source for review.

    To call them ‘hideous insidious killing machines’ is not completely inaccurate.
    Give me a break.

    That was my problem with it too. It read almost like an opinion piece rather than the results of a scientific investigation/statistical analysis...

    Re: Divermag article on rebreather fatalities

    I agree that ccr diving asks more (or better say different) skills than oc diving. Some divers will never learn ccr diving. I did my courses quite fast but I dive a lot. Now full trimix diver on ccr.
    When we would do our first 120m dive. I had a problem with the positive test. Negative passed, positive failed (and within a few minutes). We checked all again, and again, and then found it was the the connection of a hose to the scrubberpot. So fixed and we did that dive. A great dive.

    I always have oc bailout with me, even in a shallow dive to 15m. I don't have a bov/ocb, so I carry a stage all times.


    A thing I learned in my courses and not all people agree: higher the PO2 to 1.5 or 1.6 during last stop.



    But man-mistake-stupidities-fatalities happen with oc diving too. The article shows that it is not the machine, but only the diver that causes accidents. It is nothing new.
