BPCO : incompatible avec la plongée

Reduced exercise tolerance is common for those with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and poses risks for diving.

Diving After an Eye Stroke

Q: I recently had an eye stroke. Can I still dive after it has been resolved? A: The main concerns with an eye stroke (central retinal artery occlusion, or CRAO) are the underlying cause and the medications your doctor prescribed for treatment. Before returning to diving, work with your ophthalmologist or physician to determine the root cause of the initial ocular stroke, the probability of recurrence, and your overall cardiovascular health.
