Simple Guide to Rebreathers
Includes both semi-closed circuit and full closed circuit systems. Rebreathers are not new, but their use for sport divers has only gained interest in the past few years. As Barsky indicated in large letters, "Diving with a rebreather presents more risks than diving with open circuit equipment", and goes on to indicate those risks, whilst educating and encouraging the use of the equipment in well trained hands. This book is not a ‘do-it-yourself' kit, and the use of rebreathers should only be after adequate classroom and ocean training. Subjects covered include a brief history (fascinating), applications, hazards, equipment - full closed and semi-closed; and even tips for the buyer. An absolute must for anyone, particularly the instructor and advanced diver, wishing to keep up to date with new (and enhanced) technology.
