February 9th – Diver’s Ear – Dr Mark Downs


Diver’s Ear – how barotrauma effects your ears and other air-filled spaces in your body. A presentation by Mark Downs.

Ear problems affect so many divers and spoil many dive trips. They can also stop someone from learning to dive who has a real passion for the sport. Join us for this talk to learn about diver ear problems and what you may be able to do to relieve them!

Mark will also welcome (and hopefully answer) your barotrauma related and diving medical questions.

Mark is an approved medical examiner of divers for the UK Health & Safety Executive and an approved doctor for Oil & Gas UK for offshore medicals.

“Since 2001 I have enjoyed scuba diving. Naturally my job and hobby have tended to merge and I am now a HSE approved medical examiner of divers. It is always a privilege to be able to help fellow divers with medical problems, so that we can all develop our passion for diving together”.

The talk will take place at the Albert, Kingston Hill at 8pm. We look forward to seeing you there!
