Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0941332802, Paperback)

The only way to avoid the risk of the bends is not to dive! Since that is not an option, Alex Brylske has written a book to help divers understand decompression sickness better. He has incorporated all aspects of the decompression issue, both theoretical and practical from the perspective of the recreational diver. It is a helpful addition to the discussion of diving safety and will make your diving safer!

Some things in this book are too important to miss! Beating the Bends explores the mechanics of bubble formation, biochemical changes caused by DCS, and the role of blood flow, tissue density, and other factors that may contribute to a diver's susceptibility to the bends.

Highlights include: 10 Commandments of Decompression Safety, Using Dive Computers Properly, Reducing the Risk of Decompression Sickness and an In-depth Look at Dive Tables.
