Scuba Diving and Coronary Artery Disease

A great article from Rebreather Instructor Dr. Doug Ebersole, on Scuba Diving and Coronary Artery Disease.

The development of symptoms of angina, pulmonary edema, or sudden cardiac death underwater carries with it a much higher mortality than would the same event on land.

Very interesting read. Being a older diver (64) the more information a person can get the better. Did the Framingham test and had a score of 5 so that was a little reassuring.
Hope to be doing the diving I'm doing for many more years. But always have it in the back of my mind, that I'm not getting any younger.
