About the Author

Lee Griffiths has extensive experience working within the diving & hyperbaric industry. His positions held include Diving Safety Manager and Dive Accident Facility Manager. In 2003 he won an Award for Improving Dive Safety in South East Asia by the Divers Alert Network. He currently works at Whipps Cross University Hospital London and has over 1000 hours logged operating hyperbaric chambers.


"Unfortunately, most divers and many dive professionals, appear to lack adequate knowledge of important diving medical and fitness-to-dive issues, including the prevention and management of DCI. It is important for divers and dive professionals alike to realize that they do not 'know it all' when they finish their training . They should be made aware that there is much more to learn no matter what level they are at, and should be given the 'hunger' and tools to continue their education. This book written by Lee Griffiths is one such tool."John Lippman CEO Divers Alert Network South East Asia Pacific.
