After a long and accurate phase of tests, an innovative research project originating from a collaboration between
DAN Europe, NEOS AIR, and LUXURY YACHT MALDIVES (Albatros Top Boat) is ready for landing.
The objective: to monitor the presence of gas bubbles in divers during a return flight after diving. For this reason, DAN Europe researchers will be on board some of the vessels of the Neos fleet, conducting ultrasound exams for those interested.
"Flying Bubbles" is the name of the study, the first and only of its kind in the world, promoted by DAN (Divers Alert Network) Europe, an international foundation for dive safety research with over 100,000 members in Europe.
DAN's research division, always active in the detection of post-dive bubbles, has asked Neos to collaborate in the exploration of this aspect of travelling and diving that until now has remained unknown. Divers nowadays are in fact the perfect epitomes of a globetrotter: always in movement, ready for anything in the
pursuit of their passion. It may happen that some ignore or overlook the recommendations regarding no-fly time, that is to say, the minimum interval of time recommended between a dive and flying, and they embark too soon, thus increasing the risk of DCS- Decompression Sickness.
Next Rebreather Cruise in collaboration with DAN on board Duke of York from 03 to 10 May 2020.
