DIVING MEDICINE

Within the Ravenna Hyperbaric Centre there is a sub-aquatic activity physio pathology centre, which serves as a centre of excellence in providing health care  for those who perform activities linked to occupational or recreational diving.

Doctors at the Centre check that the requirements needed to perform underwater activities are present, assess suitability for immersion, carry out preventive screening and collect information on cases in which long-term damage linked to diving is apparent.

The Centre will apply the criteria set out by Italian law and determine eligibility for  diving activity established by the European Diving Technology Committee (EDTC) and the Italian Federation of Sports Medicine (FMSI).
