There is a broad range of injuries and illnesses that a diver may suffer from, many relatively minor but some potentially fatal. Some of these are directly related to diving itself, while other may be incidental. In any case, prompt first aid, emergency assistance and diving medical advice is often required to minimise the impact. 

The ADSF has produced a “Diving First Aid Flowchart” which is printed (both sides) on a waterproof slate so it can on the boat, in the dive bag, or even in a BCD pocket. The rear contains important contact numbers and emergency information, as well as marine animal envenomation advice.
