This presentation is a review of how the normal aging process affects diver safety, and what every diver should know about risk and risk mitigation to improve their safety, regardless of age.
When taking stock of our physical abilities and capabilities as we age there are absolutes that divers should be familiar with. The good news is that with age, usually comes wisdom and that improved judgment and reasoning can help you compensate for most negative body function changes. Knowing that we will have some level of impairment as we age brings us to how we can make accommodations and still dive safely. Aging is a fact of life but how we handle growing older can make the difference between enjoying diving well into our Golden Years and having to prematurely hang up our fins.
These free Scuba Show sessions will air live over the weekend of the cancelled Scuba Show, May 30-31, 2020. Sessions will be recorded and available on demand.
