Abstract:

The workshop considered all aspects of monitoring vital signs in the diver. It was concluded that monitoring was highly desirable and was within the capability of present equipment. It was recognized that monitoring in-sea divers is difficult and complicated because of unwillingness on the part of divers and tenders to cooperate. Special consideration was given to monitoring heat loss, respiration, temperature, eye movement. Performance measures were considered important and voice monitoring was considered of the highest priority. Author
