Scuba divers, when asked why they love the ocean and the beauty that
thrives underneath the sea’s surface, would probably have varied answers.
But most likely, the common reply would be that they are men of the sea.
Whether there is enough logic to this kind of answer or none at all is
left to the inquirer.
But scuba divers would unanimously agree and answer ’no’ when asked if
they trust the ocean. Like the desert and its sands, the ocean and its
waters are treacherous. They are calm and majestic now, horrible and ugly
the next. But still, men of the ocean are drawn to the serenity the ocean
provides. All the while embracing the fury that it can unleash on any
given Sunday. And the ocean has more than storms and hurricanes on the
table. It can fool the diver who underestimates it power. The more you
stay in the water, Death steps nearer.
The Deep Water Blackout is a phenomenon that has taken lives of
experienced and licensed scuba divers, some of whom are fitted with the
right equipment and Reactor watches and all that scuba gear. Deep Water
Blackout occurs when a diver loses consciousness while ascending from a
deep dive, usually from 10 meters deep. Victims faint close to the
surface, most of the time within the top 3 meters. Some victims even
managed to break surface, only to sink again. The direct cause of the
said phenomenon is the speedy drop of oxygen while ascending.
Deep water blackout, when it does not kill the diver due to drowning,
also impairs the reasoning and judgment of the diver due to lack of
nitrogen in the brain. The diver then experiences anxiety, fear, and loss
of physical dexterity. It has been reported that divers who lost the
ability to think straight while underwater swam deeper instead to the
surface, thinking they are ascending. Survivors of the Deep Water
Blackout had experienced hallucinations, saying they were seeing things
while underwater.
Like the desert and its mirages, the ocean, too has illusions prepared
for the unwary diver. Respect the ocean, love it even. But never put your
trust on something that can kill you. Like the desert dunes that have
buried travelers beneath its sands, the ocean, too has the cold abyss for
its graveyard.
