The London Diving Chamber (LDC) phone application is designed as a key resource for scuba divers. It has advice and easy-to-follow instructions for what to do in an emergency, whether a diver is suffering from the bends, has problems equalising; has been stung by a jellyfish or many other common incidents that may be experienced on a scuba diving trip or holiday. If a diver is suffering from decompression illness (the bends) this application will use your current location to work out where your nearest decompression chamber is. There is a practical pre-dive check list that will go through the key points to ensure you are both physically and mentally ready for your dive. The extensive A-Z of diving medicine in this application will answer many of your dive medical questions and if you cannot find what you’re looking for then you can simply send in your query direct to the doctors at London Diving Chamber who will get back to you. In addition, this application has a dive log book facility that enables you to log your dives.

Great Diving App
What a great app to have with you while preparing for a dive or helping with a dive incident. The list of hyperbaric chambers nearest your current location is enough to make this a worthwhile app. Add to that a step-by-step incident report data collection guide and you have a must have app.
The only downside I have discovered is when searching for a nearby chamber, I need to kill and relaunch the app if I am refreshing the search. If I don't kill the app I am shown locations in the United Kingdom. Sort of far away for us Southern California divers.
