Provided on-site medical cover for three months for the first European 300metres operational open sea dive off Norway preceding this report and was responsible for the medical protocol. Particular problems were diver fitness and selection, resistance of breathing equipment, toxic effects of welding fumes at increased partial pressures, the effects of carbon dioxide, hyper- and hypothermia, cardiological monitoring at 300 metres, and behavioural observations of operational divers at these depths.
