Title: The Effects of Warm Water Diving on Performance: Neuropsychological Findings Using the Automated Neuropsychological Assessment Metrics
Author: Lowe, MA; Reeves, D; Long, ET
Abstract: This technical report partially addresses issues associated with Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) Task 99-005c and Annex A of Navy Experimental Diving Unit (NEDU) Test Protocol 99-22 (TP99-22). Operational performance and safety are important in any challenging environment. Work in extremely warm water is an unexplored subject that this study addresses. The data gathered during this series of dives provide guidelines for early identification of potential changes in diver health and for investigations of divers' reports of subtle changes in their cognitive functioning. The purposes of the study were to assess the neuropsychological safety of exposure to a warm water environment, to ensure proper documentation of the divers' neuropsychological state before and after warm water exposure, and to identify any residual effects from exposure to warm water.
