dc.description.abstract Diving using scuba, or any type of diving using compressed breathing gas, remains a popular pastime in the United States and worldwide. Present estimates place the number of active recreational divers in the United States at between 2.7 to 3.5 million (Hornsby, Page 165). The number of fatalities involving U.S. citizens performing recreational dives averages 90-100 each year. From a dive safety perspective, these deaths should be thoroughly investigated to determine a trigger, or root cause, for the mishap. Proper data collection and analysis allows identification of the most common triggers and contributing factors associated with fatal diving mishaps. en_US
