Dive Medical

Dive Medicals are conducted by Dr Andrew Harris (Diploma in Diving and Hyperbaric Medicine).

A detailed questionnaire and examination is performed according to the Australian Standard for Dive Medical.

The Australian Dive Medical Standard assesses the fitness and suitability of prospective scuba divers and ensures that the medical standards for diver fitness meet the standards of Australian Standards AS 4005.1 for recreational divers.

It is a legal requirement for medical practitioners who perform diving examinations to adhere to these standards and to have had a level of training approved under the Standard.

Developed largely by the South Pacific Underwater Medical Society (SPUMS), the Standards for dive medical examinations in Australia are closely modelled on the SPUMS dive medical examination.
