In the News
A recent interview with Dr. Denise Blake and myself on ABC news discussing the legislation regarding carrying sufficient oxygen on dive boats. New research indicates that decreasing the flow rates of oxygen given to divers with suspected decompression illness may be more damaging than previously thought.
Current legislation in Queensland requires "The person conducting the business or undertaking should ensure:..... an oxygen system capable of providing a spontaneously breathing person with an inspired oxygen concentration of as near as possible to 100%. The equipment shall also facilitate oxygen enriched artificial ventilation of a non-breathing person. The person/s administering the oxygen should hold a current qualification in the correct use of the system .... (and that).... sufficient oxygen is available to supply the injured person, taking into account the location of the diving/snorkelling site and access to medical facilities." Recreational Diving Code of Practice 2011 Sect 2.2.4
However, the number of divers is not specified, thus leaving a bit of a grey area.
