Title: Diabetes and recreational diving: Guidelines for the future.
Author: Pollock, NW; Uguccioni, DM; Dear, GdeL
Abstract: A workshop addressing issues of diabetes and recreational diving was jointly sponsored by the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society (UHMS) and Divers Alert Network (DAN) to bring together experts and interested parties from within and beyond the international diving community. The meeting was held on June 19, 2005 in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, following the UHMS annual scientific meeting. The objectives of the workshop were to review the existing data and, as warranted by participant support, to develop consensus guidelines to address diabetes and recreational diving. More than 50 individuals from seven nations, mostly clinicians and researchers, participated in the discussions. Limitations: 1) The discussion was restricted to recreational diving. The issues concerning professional diving require future, separate deliberations. 2) This is a set of guidelines, not rules. The participants agreed that appropriate and justifiable differences in acceptable procedures may exist and that interest groups must have the flexibility to use the guidelines as they best serve their communitys needs.(NOTE: Partial introduction, no abstract available) Reprinted with kind permission from Pollock NW, Uguccioni DM, Dear G de L, editors.
