In the ten years since the third edition of this work, recreational diving has become increasingly available worldwide and commercial diving has consolidated its operational experience at record depths. From continued research there has come a greater understanding of many of the problems associated with the physiological, bio-engineering and medical aspects of exposure to raised environmental pressure.

An authoritative team of contributors has been assembled to produce a new edition of this established series of scientific and medical reviews. It contains much new material: every chapter has been revised and many have been completely rewritten. The physiological basis of safe diving, the pathogenesis of diving illnesses and the management of diving accidents are all covered, many from the perspectives of new authors, and new chapters include fitness to dive, hyperbaric oxygen therapy and the possible long-term effects of diving.
