    The medical facilities in Andaman,is fairly decent, however, it depends on where you are at Andaman. Port Blair and Havelock have some good hospitals and healthcare centers. GB Pant Hospital, INHS Dhanvantari, Chakraborty Hospital, Pillar Health Center, ACE Hospital and few others.

  • What are the most common injuries or sickness associated with diving?

    Well, scuba diving causes pain in your ear and on your face while you are trying to decent in the water. These are the minor common problems. It happens to almost everyone. However, the major ones include barotraumas to the lungs and decompression sickness. These can be handled with proper training and guidance from a certified diving trainer.

  • My ears hurt when I dive to the bottom of a pool. Won’t they hurt when I scuba dive?

    They will hurt, but there’s a simple explanation. Your ear hurts because of the water pressure on your ear drum. When you will be doing your scuba diving course you will be taught some tricks on how to equalize the pressure with the surrounding.

  • I need vision correction. Is that a problem?

    It isn’t a problem as wearing soft contact lenses don’t pose any problem while you dive. However, if you are a hard contact lens user, we recommend you to use gas permeable lenses. Prescribe to your eye doctor for more information on this issue.

  • What are the medical conditions that impede diving?

    Any medical conditions related to your respiratory organs and your cardio vascular system that may render you senseless and lag your response or cut it off altogether, is considered to be a red signal by us. We regret to inform you, but you won’t be able to take a diving course. There are several common contraindications which the schools look for in their diving students. They are asthma, epilepsy, diabetes and heart disease. If you have any of these, we recommend you to consult a doctor before diving.

    It is generally not recommended for people with the following conditions to scuba dive:

    •People who suffer from breathing problems.

    •People with ear problems and those who had an ear surgery in the last 12 months.

    •People suffering from cold, flu or congestion. We recommended that people with a cold should not take decongestion medication in order to dive, this will create a problem underwater, as this can wear off and create chaos while ascending to the surface.

    There are several other reasons for which a diving student will be asked to prescribe a doctor. They are:

    •If you have a history of heart or lung disease

    •If you use prescription or non-prescription medications

    •If you suffer from shortness of breath

    •If you are having repeated trouble clearing air spaces (equalization)

    •If you experience unexplained loss of consciousness or “blackout”

    •If you had suffered from of nausea or vomiting recently.

  • Are there any special concerns that women need to be aware of?

    No, nothing as such guidelines are provided specifically for women, but it must be noted that pregnant women are not allowed to dive.

  • What if it rains?

    Rain never affects your diving activities. Rain falls on the surface and hence, when you are in sea, 12-15m deep, it will not affect your diving in any way possible. Also, rain does not alter your visibility in the ocean.

  • What does the diver’s Never-to-do checklist look like?

    It’s a simple checklist, but the diving schools are extremely strict with it.

    •Never drink and dive, as intoxication can put a diver in a very dangerous and compromised position. An intoxicated diver won’t be able to make sane judgment and rational decision jeopardizing his safety in water.

    •Don’t dive in a full stomach, schools says that you should wait for at least two hours after your meal to dive. Diving in full stomach or after a heavy meal will make it uneasy for you to move in the water, there is a possibility of acquiring cramps and making it impossible for you to breathe.

    •It is a strict rule to never conceal any kind of medical conditions that you are aware of yourself.

  • Is there a decompression chamber on Havelock?

    Sadly, there aren’t any decompression chambers in Havelock in Andamans. We strongly recommend that you check with your diving insurance company to know if there is any decompression chamber.

  • In the movies and on TV, divers are always running into sharks or eels. Should I be concerned about marine animals?

    This is interesting. You must keep in mind that like land animals, most marine animals are passive and timid. They rarely attack you. Some animals do bite and/or sting, but only if you touch them. The divers are not a natural prey for sharks, so they rarely or never attack. There are many scuba divers who actually seek for an encounter with sharks, just for the experience and the thrill that come with it.
