    Neal Pollock - Thoughtful management of decompression stress

    Not sure if this was already posted, but it's an excellent talk by Neal at the BSAC Conference (this is not a BSAC bashing thread, thanks):

    Great presentation. Thank you for posting it.


    Are the other presentations available online?

    Can any BSAC member attend that conference?

    I beleive so. it used to be the diving Officers conference , but it changed its name a while ago.

    I first went as an assistant instructor having recently completed the IFC ( best course i ever did , taught me lots )
    Those who think they got away with things had better watch their backs.

    It's nice to see the good side of BSAC outside of the politics.

    Yep open to all members, in fact I was at that event..

    There were other good talks, not al the speakers as accomplished Neal, but intersting all the same

    Jill Heinerth https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fGyPbKONy9E
    Maritime archaeologist at Historical England - Alison James https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-zWF9Iu-Ex8
    Rachel Alcock from the MCS https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3F-EK7NlI4o

    And the incident report https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZRs4MOaLyC4 (intersting info on IPO)

    You get entry to the dive show included (opening it up to all members and co-locating with the dive show was one of the good ideas to make it more popular).

    Iain.

    That is really interesting, especially the bit about being able to get left heart bubbles even without a pfo but by physical stress. I think this may have been very relevant in the case of my wife's vestibular bend where she did say she was feeling very worn out during the dive (not helped by not eating enough) and then strained to climb up the ladder in heavy gear and drysuit.
