Thermal status of saturation divers during operational dives in the North Sea.

The principal aim of the present study was to monitor the core temperature (Tc) of a population of saturation divers conducting routine deep dives at different locations in the United Kingdom sector of the North Sea and to assess whether current dive procedures are adequate in preventing deleterious decreases in Tc. A total of 30 divers, with an average (SD… CONTINUE READING
