    Abstract

    Rapid advances in diving technology over the past decade have opened the underwater world to thousands of professional and sport divers. As may be expected with any activity involving an element of risk, the number of diving-related accidents and deaths has also risen [1–3]. Unfortunately, at the present time too few physicians and pathologists have been adequately trained in the investigation of deaths occurring during diving activities.
