The Ears & Diving

Product Code




Product Details

DAN’s 36-page Ears & Diving booklet discusses ear issues that every diver has experienced while in or around the water. Though the ear is a complex organ, this booklet simply explains the anatomy of the inner ear, common injury symptoms and treatment, hygiene and medical conditions. Multiple equalization techniques are also discussed in detail since ear problems account for almost 40% of diver’s medical-related correspondence with DAN. This is one resource that no diver should be without.
