Dive 1st Aid - Safety

With accidents a part of life, being prepared is the smart thing to do. Everyone’s first aid needs will differ with the type of emergency, number of people involved, and the time emergency personal take to respond. These first aid kits are built by diving medical professionals for divers to include sting relief kits, recreational diving first aid kits, and advanced level kits. We've also included a few related items that are useful in managing dive emergencies.

A Different Method to Remove A Wetsuit

If you haven't seen this video of a 7mm neoprene wetsuit being cut off an attractive young model in less than a minute with an EEZYCUT tool, it's worth a look. We especially like how she pirouettes and walks away from the camera at the end.

Unfortunately, when divers with rescue training think about it later... something less pleasant might come to mind. We were showing this video to a diver who is also an EMT and their reaction was "Do NOT do that!". Although not without some controversy, a wetsuit might be acting as makeshift anti-shock trousers and rapidly cutting the wetsuit off an accident victim could make the situation worse.
