Common Injuries

Most importantly for divers going to this depth of water, 30 metres is the depth at which symptoms of nitrogen narcosis can occur.

This is a condition that temporarily alters the consciousness, affecting the senses and movements of a Diver and causing them to experience numbness. It can also lead to hallucinations.

  • Damaged sinuses and ruptured ear drums can be caused by the change in air pressure
  • Disability or even death, in extreme cases, can be the results of decompression sickness
  • Oxygen toxicity can cause the diver to have a seizure and drown
  • Hypothermia, necessitating the use of a wet suit even in mild waters
