Frequently Asked Questions
Is scuba diving safe?
We can say so. The rules for recreational diving are such that it is very unlikely that something happens to you if you obey the rules. Almost all diving accidents occur because divers do not comply with the prescribed rules. For example; when diving too deep you’ll ignore the proper procedures. Many accidents that happen during the dive are shown in the media as diving accidents, this is not always justified. A common sense is very pleasant if you go scuba diving. It makes sense though that you are at greater risk when moving into an environment where you do not really belong. However; Diving is so safe that many travel insurancy’s seen diving no longer as a risk diving no longer seen as risk. Ski-ing though.
Can you get Caisson Disease?
Caisson Disease is decompression sickness. This is because there arise nitrogen bubbles in your blood when you ascend too quickly at the end of the dive. Recreational divers use very conservative procedures to avoid decompression sickness. It happens rarely. Should it go wrong in the most unlikely event, there are proper anmd well-equiped facilities in Hurghada to treat decrompession sickness.
