There were a number of lectures recorded at Rebreather Forum 3 in May 2012. As they come on line, I'll post them up here as a resource for all.

**

The first video lecture will be on thermal physiology and it was given by USA based Dr Neal W Pollock, of Divers Alert Network / Duke University.

THERMAL PHYSIOLOGY AND PROTECTION
Dr Neal W Pollock
9:15, Friday 18 May 2012, Boca Room III

“Diving is carried out in a wide range of environments and conditions. Thermal stress can be an important issue, particularly for the long exposures often associated with technical diving. Proper preparation can improve comfort, performance and safety. This presentation will discuss thermal stress, thermal protection, and implications for diving health.”

The second video lecture will be on diving fatalities and it was given by USA based Dr Petar J Denoble of Divers Alert Network.

RECREATIONAL SCUBA DIVING FATALITIES BY NUMBERS
Dr Petar Denoble
10:30, Friday 18 May 2012, Boca Room III

“There can be risks associated with scuba diving that may lead to accidents. Analyzing these accidents, particularly fatal cases, is an important tool we have to identify and try to prevent potential problems to improve diving safety. Using statistical analyses to observe trends in scuba diving accidents, this talk explains the disparity between mishaps and fatalities, fatality rates amongst divers, and trigger events or disabling injuries that might contribute to fatalities.”

The third Rebreather Forum 3 video lecture to be uploaded is given by USA based Michael Menduno.

LESSONS LEARNED FROM REBREATHER FORUM 2
Michael Menduno
Friday 18 May 2012, Caribbean Ballroom III

"The 1996 Rebreather Forum 2 in Redondo Beach concluded the sport diving community had little experience with rebreathers. There was no infrastructure, discipline, training, or support comparable to the military. Retail support, third-party equipment testing, adequate manufacturer support, and CO2 sensors were lacking. Lessons learned since RF2 will be addressed through the perspectives of 20 – 25 industry veterans."

The fourth Rebreather Forum 3 video lecture to be uploaded is given by USA based Christian M. McDonald.

CCR COMMUNITIES - SCIENTIFIC
Chaired by Martin Robson
17:10, Friday 18 May 2012, Caribbean Ballroom III

"Rebreather use in the scientific community has been limited, especially if they detract from the purpose of the dive mission, particularly making scientific observations and data collections. The investment in rebreather training may not be realistic to incorporate into the scientific diving community but there is still much potential to extend bottom times and explore beyond 100 ft / 30 metres. In this talk, current mandates of the American Academy of Underwater Sciences (AAUS) and thoughts on incorporating rebreathers into the scientific diving community are discussed."
