From the Foreword:
“John Lippmann and Dr. Simon Mitchell, both experts in diving, have revised and updated Lippmann’s excellent earlier edition, and made it even better.
Deeper into Diving provides comprehensive discussions of both technical/procedural and physiological/medical issues of diving ... The book is comprehensive enough to appeal not only to advanced recreational divers and instructors, but also to those who want to learn about decompression tables and technical diving.
Specific chapters on nitrox diving, technical diving, decompression table development, dive computers, flying after diving and rebreathers are particularly topical ... Its state-of-the-art overview of specific diving-related medical issues is perfectly matched with divers’ and medical providers’ common concerns regarding decompression illness, women’s health, pregnancy, bone necrosis, hypothermia and the interaction of drugs with the diving environment.
... For anyone looking for a delightfully written overview of diving, this book is a must.”

The technical explanations can be exhaustive — and exhausting. For instance, the authors take four pages to describe the often undetected heart condition Patent Foramen Ovale (PFO), which seems to make divers more susceptible to decompression sickness, especially when they are within their computer limits. Essentially a birth defect found in as much as 30 percent of the population, most divers would never know they had a PFO until they got bent, and then they may never know unless they are diagnosed with an echocardiogram, an ultrasound test.
