We received the following e-mail this morning announcing that Edmonds' 3rd Edition of Diving Medicine for Scuba Divers is now available on-line at http://www.divingmedicine.info/divingmedicine/ for free.
This text is the 2010 edition (3rd English edition) of Diving Medicine for Scuba Divers. Its previous editions have been mainly restricted to the Indo-Pacific region (in English, Japanese and Korean) for almost 2 decades. Because the previous edition is out of print and there still seems to be a need for this expanded publication, it is now made available free to any and all divers on the Internet. Under these conditions, the original authors, plus John Pennefather, have agreed that the text be made available without royalties and without imposing copyright.

The book deals mainly with diving problems, their causes, first-aid and prevention. It does not deal with complex medical treatments.

Diving authors and editors may extract whatever they wish, for their articles. It may be used commercially on condition that there is acknowledgment of the source, with our web address promulgated so that clients can access the complete and related data.

The Internet book is intended to be relevant to:

* Injured (and non-injured) divers, who may download any or all chapters relevant to them.
* Instructors and diving paramedics, who may need the whole text, as they cannot predict which part will be relevant to their diving trainees and patients.
* Non-diving physicians will be introduced to this subject and it may inspire them to seek more information. It tells them how to do so.
* Administrators who run diving medical courses can make the book available to the students for pre-course reading.
* Diving physicians, who will be able to download specific chapters to give to their diver patients, to understand and prevent recurrences of the illnesses they are treating
