This contest is fueled by the following news: Types of professional activity of scuba divers are determined by the organization using the services of divers. For instance: * Civil diving - repair, engineering, rescue and other underwater works, which are carried out in peaceful purposes; * Commercial diving - most often, a set of work to support and conduct recreational diving. Develop and conduct tourist activities for people. Provision of safety; * Preparation of divers - training and preparation of personnel. It can be done both in a commercial as well as for professional purposes; * Media diving - journalists and cinematographers; * Military diving - security and protection of various sites, conduct sabotage on enemy sites, surveillance, mine clearing (including naval diving) and other operations; * "Naval" diving - maintenance and repair of ships, clearance operations of the water area; * "Police" diving - search for under water evidence; * Scientific diving - under water research. Sport diving. CMAS started carrying out diving competitions in 2008. For the first time, international competitions were held on May 24 in Hurghada. The competition program consists of combined swimming for 300 meters. Diving Hazards: Water – a hostile medium for humans since they have lungs and are not capable of breathing in water and hence, diving and underwater work are always associated with life threatening and health hazards. Main hazards: * Drowning; * Decompression sickness; * Barotrauma ; * Gas poisoning: carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, oxygen and nitrogen; * "OOG (Out-of-gas)" situation arises due to the exhaustion of the reserve breathing gas or failure of equipment. Additional limitations: It is prohibited to dive with subjective overstrained features and also after a sleepless night, hard physical work, in a severe nervous excitement condition or depression or even after slight alcohol consumption. It is recommended for the diver not to smoke at least one hour prior to diving. It is also recommended not to undertake diving immediately after taking food. Required skills: In order to undertake underwater swimming, it is necessary to have a set of skills, which allow in solving overwhelming problems, encountered during submersion (misting of mask, loss of regulator, buoyancy adjustment etc). These skills and knowledge are acquired during the training process and testified by a certificate from one of the scuba diving associations. People, who are involved in diving operations, are called divers or scuba divers. The so called "Intro-dive" concept is prevalent in sea resorts, when the participant, after undergoing first training session, is allowed to see the underwater world with scuba equipment under the guidance of an instructor. The presence of a certificate is not mandatory for undertaking diving, however, its absence will create difficulties in obtaining equipment for rent, in participating in group diving or safari-dives. Independent scuba diving without proper training can lead to serious illness and even death. Outfit: The basic outfit of the diver consists of three items (set No.1) and allows to dive with delay in breathing (free diving) or float on the water surface by lowering the head into the water (snorkelling): * Flippers; * Mask; * Pipe. Though no one prohibits undertaking diving without anything, the mask makes the scuba diving process much more comfortable. Strictly speaking, wet suits and belts with loads can be added to the specified "set No.1" equipment for much more comfortable swimming. The complete set consists of: * Wet suit. Functionality of wet suit – to decrease the effect of water on the scuba diver, provide insulation, protect from possible injuries to the body. Several types of wet suits are available, which are meant for various under water conditions or on the water surface; * Flippers; * Mask; * Buoyancy compensator (BCD): The buoyancy compensator is meant for adjusting the buoyancy by changing the air volume, located between the double walls of the compensator; * Scuba or re-breather for breathing: artificial gills ( presently developed) are meant for this purpose. * Regulator (lung apparatus): It allows the diver to breathe from the cylinder. It reduces the air pressure in the cylinder up to ambient pressure in two stages. It also regulates the air flow during inhalation and exhalation. * Compressed air cylinder; * Belt with loads; * Gloves; * Boots in case the flippers are with adjustable heel; * Helmet (if the wet suit does not have a connected helmet); * Depth gauge and watch or computer, combining all these functions. The following can be additionally used: * Light; * Reels; * Tower; * Buoy; * Pipe; * Compass; * Knife.
