Diving Medicals

Back To Our Services

Recreational Dive Medicals

Diving medicals are strongly recommended by PADI Asia Pacific.

They may uncover conditions or issues you may not be aware of, for example ear, nose and throat, or lung function issues which could expose you to the risk of serious injury or death while diving.

Please complete the SPUMS Diving Medical Questionnaire prior to your dive medical appointment.

Diving medicals involve a review of your medical history and an examination. This involves a brief appointment with one of our practice nurses followed by an appointment with the doctor.

As part of the medical examination we will check your:

  • Lung function
  • Ears
  • Sinus
  • Balance

Occupational Dive Medicals

Occupational diving can be a very demanding. A high degree of physical and psychological fitness is required and you will need to keep yourself in top condition throughout your career.

As an occupational diver, you are required to pass an occupational dive medical annually in accordance with AS/NZS2299.1.

Your doctor will conduct a thorough medical examination and will make you aware of any underlying health problems, which could affect your fitness in the future.
