With the increasing popularity of sports diving, it is critical that both physicians and divers be aware of the spectrum of illness associated with diving. An overview of common diving-related disorders is presented. After a brief discussion of relevant physics principles, the clinical presentation of ear and sinus squeeze is covered along with preventive strategies and treatment. This is followed by a discussion of the pathophysiology, clinical settings, and manifestations of pulmonary barotrauma along with a review of the pathophysiology and presentation of decompression illness.
