Pregnancy and Diving

[:en] 

maternity scuba tshirt

As you know, diving is not recommended during pregnancy. However, because scientific data on the subject is poor, it is difficult to counsel women who have dived while pregnant but did not know it at that time.

A group of researchers have created a questionnaire for female divers who went diving and later learned they were pregnant. The responses will be used (anonymously) as part of a study investigating possible implications of diving on health of pregnant women and the outcome of their pregnancy.

The online questionnaire takes 10-20 minutes to complete and is available in English, French, Spanish and Portuguese. The survey is anonymous. Neither PADI, nor the investigators will have access to the identities of the participants. If you have questions, please contact the researchers via the following email: diving.study(at)chuv.ch

Start the survey.

Como sabes, no se recomienda bucear durante el embarazo.
Sin embargo, debido a que los datos científicos sobre el tema son escasos, es difícil aconsejar a las mujeres que han buceado estando embarazadas pero que no lo sabían en ese momento.

Un grupo de investigadores ha creado un cuestionario para mujeres buceadoras que han realizado inmersiones y más tarde se han enterado que estaban embarazadas. Las respuestas se utilizarán (de forma anónima) como parte de un estudio que investiga las posibles implicaciones del buceo sobre la salud de mujeres embarazadas y el resultado de sus embarazos.

El cuestionario online se tarda en rellenarlo 10-20 minutos y está disponible en inglés, francés, español y portugués. La encuesta es anónima. Ni PADI, ni los investigadores tienen acceso a la identidad de las participantes. Si tienes alguna pregunta, por favor, ponte en contacto con los investigadores mediante el siguiente email: diving.study(at)chuv.ch

Empieza la encuesta.

Comme vous le savez, nous recommandons aux femmes de ne pas plonger pendant leur grossesse. Cependant, il n’y a pas beaucoup de données scientifiques sur ce sujet, il est donc difficile de donner des conseils à celles qui ont plongé sans savoir qu’elles étaient enceintes.

Un groupe de chercheurs a créé un questionnaire pour les plongeuses qui ont découvert qu’elles étaient enceintes après avoir plongé. Les réponses seront utilisées (anonymement) dans une enquête concernant les implications possibles de la plongée sur la santé des femmes enceintes et l’issue de leur grossesse.

Répondre au questionnaire en ligne prend entre 10 à 20 minutes et il est disponible en anglais, français, espagnol, portugais. L’enquête est anonyme. Ni PADI, ni les enquêteurs, auront accès à l’identité des participantes. Au cas où vous auriez des questions, n’hésitez pas à contacter les chercheurs en envoyant un e-mail à: diving.study(at)chuv.ch

Répondez au questionnaire.

Come ben sai, durante la gravidanza non è consigliato immergersi:
tuttavia, poiché i dati scientifici a tal proposito sono scarsi, è difficile offrire consigli a donne che, non sapendo di essere gravide, si sono comunque immerse.

Un gruppo di ricercatori ha realizzato un questionario per le subacquee che hanno scoperto di essere in gravidanza solo dopo essersi immerse: le risposte saranno utilizzate (in forma anonima) come parte di uno studio che vuole investigare sulle possibili implicazioni dell’immersione sulla salute di donne in stato di gravidanza e su come questa sia evoluta.

Il questionario online non richiede che 10-20 minuti, ed è disponibile in inglese, francese, spagnolo e portoghese. L’indagine è totalmente anonima, e né PADI né gli operatori potranno accedere ai dati sensibili delle partecipanti: se tu avessi qualche domanda, mettiti in contatto con i ricercatori inviando un’email a diving.study(at)chuv.ch

Inizia l’indagine.

Zoals je weet wordt duiken afgeraden tijdens de zwangerschap. Aangezien er echter heel weinig wetenschappelijk onderzoeksmateriaal over dit onderwerp voorhanden is, is het lastig om vrouwen advies te geven die gedoken hebben tijdens hun zwangerschap, terwijl zij nog niet wisten dat zij op dat moment zwanger waren.

Een groep wetenschappers heeft een enquête opgesteld voor vrouwelijke duikers die zijn gaan duiken op het moment dat zij nog niet wisten dat zij zwanger waren. De onderzoeksresultaten zullen (anoniem) worden gebruikt ter ondersteuning van een onderzoek naar mogelijke implicaties van duiken op de gezondheid van de zwangere vrouw en het kind.

De online enquête neemt 10 tot 20 minuten in beslag en is beschikbaar in het Engels, Frans, Spaans en Portugees. Het onderzoek is anoniem. Noch PADI, noch de onderzoekers hebben toegang tot de identiteit van de deelnemers. Mocht je vragen hebben neem dan contact op met de onderzoekers via diving.study(at)chuv.ch.

Wie du weisst, ist tauchen während der Schwangerschaft nicht empfehlenswert. Da es jedoch kaum wissenschaftlich profunde Daten über tauchen in der Schwangerschaft gibt, ist es schwierig, Frauen zu beraten, die ohne zu wissen, dass sie schwanger sind, getaucht sind.

Eine Gruppe von Forschern hat daher einen Fragenkatalog für die Frauen erstellt, die getaucht sind und erst im Nachhinein feststellten, dass sie zu diesem Zeitpunkt bereits schwanger waren. Die (anonymen) Antworten dienen zu Forschungszwecken, wobei mögliche Auswirkungen auf die Gesundheit der schwangeren Frauen und die der Neugeborenen untersucht werden.

Der Fragebogen ist online in Englisch, Französisch, Spanisch und Portugiesisch abrufbar und ist in circa 10-20 Minuten durchgeführt. Die Studie ist anonym. Weder PADI noch die Forscher selbst haben Zugang zu den Identitäten der Studienteilnehmer. Für Fragen und weitere Details kontaktiere das Forschungsteam unter folgender E-Mail: diving.study(at)chuv.ch

Mit der Umfrage beginnen.

Sport Relief took place on the 21st-23rd March in the UK, bringing the nation together to get active, have fun and raise life-changing cash for people in need around the world.

In conjunction with Ryman, Robert Dyas and Boux Avenue, PADI 5* Career Development Centre London School of Diving organised a fundraising weekend on 8th-9th March, completing unique underwater miles in their pool using specially adapted turbo-trainer bikes.

BBC TV Presenter Dallas Campbell and PADI Regional Manager Matt Clements joined around 65 keen participants who came dressed as nuns. Between them, they cycled a commendable 65 miles underwater as well as completing PADI Discover Scuba Diving experiences.

Along with plenty of laughs, the weekend has already raised a fantastic £6,000 for Sport Relief – and the donations are still pouring in!

Double the Fun at UK Shows in February

[:en]PADI Europe, Middle East and Africa enjoyed double the fun by attending both the London International Dive Show (LIDS) and the Telegraph Outdoor Adventure and Travel Show last month:

LIDS

The PADI Village was busy with streams of visitors wanting to hear the latest PADI news and, in particular, explore the new and highly interactive learning tool, PADI Open Water Diver Touch.

 Touch300x223

PADI staff also gave a warm welcome to Miss Scuba International 2013, Jaime-Lee Faulkner, who visited the PADI stand on Sunday.

MissScuba300x200

Dr John Carlin’s presentation in the Photo Zone, Inspiring Underwater Photography, attracted a full house on both days, and attendees left with new photography insights and a PADI gift bag.

PhotoZone300x225

Exhibiting PADI Dive Centres enjoyed many “on the spot” PADI course sign-ups and customers took delight in their free PADI free T-Shirt upon booking their chosen course.

Village300x225

The Discover Scuba Diving Pool was overwhelmed with aspiring divers lining up to try scuba with PADI 5 Star IDC Centre London School of Diving, and Saturday alone saw more participants than had taken part during the entire 2013 LIDS!

The Telegraph Outdoor Adventure and Travel Show

PADI joined forces with Canon to combine the best of scuba and photography and attracted non-stop visitors every day.

PADI staff enjoyed talking about the wonders of scuba diving with visitors, encouraging them to visit LIDS to try diving that weekend. As well as learning about the PADI Digital Underwater Photographer course, visitors could even test Canon cameras in the ocean-themed dip tank!

TOATS300x225

The grand prize draw attracted over 700 entries, but just one lucky visitor, Mr Gary Edwardson, won the ultimate set of scuba goodies – a full PADI scuba diving course, a full set of scuba gear, a Canon camera and underwater housing and a PADI Digital Underwater Photographer course. Worth over £3,000 this incredible prize was sponsored by PADI, Canon, Apeks/Aqualung, Fourth Element and Suunto.

PADI will be exhibiting at the DIVE 2014 in October – watch this space for more news![:]
