What is a Dry Dive

Dry diving is exactly what it sounds like.  Our local Hyperbaric chamber is the perfect environment to test a diver's ability at depth, but in a safe and water-free environment

Why undertake a Dry Dive?

Decompression illness DCI can result from a diver's inability to handle nitrogen narcosis.  If a diver is underwater the first time they experience narcosis, they can panic and risk DCI.

A dry dive can prepare a diver mentally for what can happen underwater

What will Happen?

  • All divers will fill in a self-declaration medical form. Any questions ticked YES must be covered by a Dive Doctor's clearance form.
  • Divers change into scrubs (provided).
  • After a briefing, divers (maximum of 10) enter the chamber accompanied by an Midlands Dive Chamber supervisor
  • The chamber is compressed to 50m.
  • After maximum bottom time is reached, decompression begins.
  • Divers decompress on a 100% oxygen.
  • On coming out of the chamber there will be a post-dive briefing and time for questions and logbook stamping.

Please remember that like a wet dive, a dry dive does carry a risk of DCI although an extremely minimal one as the environment is carefully controlled. Please report any abnormal symptoms immediately.
