05may1:00 pm2:00 pmWomen and Diving: Equal Opportunity Versus PhysiologyPresented by Frauke Tillmans 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm Seaside 4-A

Event Details

Women’s anatomy and physiology is of course different than men’s. Women are generally considered less strong but more flexible, and there are differences in risk awareness, body composition and hormones. How relevant this is to scuba diving and what it might mean for decompression is not well studied. We’ll look at the differences that have been explored in physiology and psychology research, and we’ll draw some conclusions about equal opportunity underwater.
