Every Few Months A Diver Must Get MCU And Hyperbaric Therapy?
Good afternoon, I want to ask. How many months does a diver have to do a medical check-up and do hyperbaric therapy to prevent decompression if the working hours of the diver are more than 3000 hours per day with a diving depth of 30-40 meters? Thank you HealthReplies.com
For professional divers, it is generally recommended to carry out routine medical check ups at least once a year. This can be different for each age, condition and intensity of a person's dive. Please consult with a doctor at a special hospital that provides medical check-ups for divers, such as: Navy hospitals in Jakarta and Surabaya.
