Ageing Overweight Scuba Divers at Risk of Underwater Cardiac Events

SOPHIA ANTIPOLIS, FRANCE--Older, overweight scuba divers are being urged to shed pounds to avoid an underwater cardiac event. That’s the advice from a large study in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology, a publication of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC).1
 

“Cardiac issues are now a leading factor in diving fatalities,” said study author Peter Buzzacott, MD, of the University of Western Australia, in Crawley, Australia. “Divers who learned to dive years ago and who are now old and overweight, with high blood pressure and high cholesterol, are at increased risk of dying.”

Mission & Vision

The mission of the Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) Foundation is to prevent death and disability from sudden cardiac arrest. The vision of the SCA Foundation is to increase awareness about sudden cardiac arrest and influence attitudinal and behavioral changes that will reduce mortality and morbidity from SCA.
