CESAA / diving equipment


Controlled Emergency Swimming Ascent is a technique used when divers run out of air. Divers must ascend at a specific rate whilst exhaling slowly to prevent decompression sickness, lung injury and drowning. It is an important technique that most divers forget because it is complicated and not practiced regularly. In an emergency, the vest will inflate and bring the diver to the surface safely using the built in heart monitor and GPS. The automatically controlled ascent helps prevent panic and lets the diver focus on the breathing, not monitoring depth and timing.CESAA - Don’t let the sea bed become your death bed.
