Medical Policy


Here at Pro Dive International, we make your safety our highest priority.

Prior to all diving activities and courses with us you will be required to read and complete a medical questionnaire which will identify any pre-existing condition which may affect your safety while diving.

Or, click here for the document in other languages:    German    Spanish    French    Italian

 

A positive response to any of the questions in the form, which have a little star * next to the YES checkbox, would mean that you must seek to obtain a written/signed medical clearance from a physician prior to engaging in in-water activities.

A written/signed medical clearance from a diving physician is required for following medical conditions:

  • History of heart surgery, heart desease, heart attack or stroke (CVA)
  • History of high blood pressure combined with subscription of “Betablockers” to regulate hypertension
  • History of lung surgery, pneumothorax or collapsed lung
  • Asthma, if client generally carries an emergency inhaler
  • History of Epilepsy, convulsions or fainting
  • History of Diabetes
  • History of diving accident or diving sickness (such as DCS)

All of the above are potentially life threatening medical conditions when scuba diving, therefore we will accept a medical clearance only from a proper diving physician.

A positive response on any of the other questions in the form, which have a little star * next to the YES checkbox, means that a medical clearance from a certified general doctor will suffice. When obliged to provide a medical clearance, please note that the clearance should be dated within 12 months before the diving activity, since medical conditions of a diver may change over time.

These steps are taken with your safety in mind and in an attempt to reduce the risk of injury or death whilst diving.
