Dive Medicals

Occupational and recreational dive medicals are available. Dr. Cathy Meehan is a nominated IMCA doctor for commercial dive medicals.

Aridol Challenge/ Provocation Test

Some patients suffer from asthma or use/have used a puffer in the past. This may mean that they will need to undertake an Aridol Challenge, otherwise known as a provocation test, to determine fitness to dive. This test is additional to the standard dive medical questionnaire (AS4005-1)

Please note: It is recommended that anyone with a chronic medical condition or anyone who takes medication frequently should have regular checks to ensure that they are meeting the fitness to dive standards.
