Forget the diving stop

Your Question: What to do when you forget the diving stop? If you go up very fast and without stopping. Can you grab another tank and return to the water immediately and make the recommended stops? Roberto de Espana.

Hi Roberto,
Very good question. A person who does not follow the dive plan is risking his life and others underwater. You should always make a dive plan. Many centers are always diving at the same place and diving is already planned, the plan needs to be explained before immersion.

Some military diving courses used to recommend that the diver returns to water in case of a forgotten decompression stop. But if for some reason you forget the diving stop, initiate the use of oxygen and get immediate medical attention. Avoid the temptation to simply change the tank and go underwater to complete the decompression stop, because other medical complications may develop under water without the presence of qualified personnel to assist you.

The dive stops are important

It is very important to do decompression stops as the nitrogen found in the air is of no use to the human body, during dives the body tends to store nitrogen.

The diving stops are necessary and mandatory for gases such as nitrogen not to dissolve in the blood. Causing decompression sickness that can cause paralysis or death.

Today it is mandatory for all dive centers to have oxygen in the diving area or boat, in case if any diver forgets the diving stop.

We hope that our discussion has been helpful.
