2023 September - Medical examinations before the beginning of the courses
STDA has always distinguished itself by requiring a sports medical examination with under-stress electrocardiogram before the start of diving courses.
To date, with the significant increase in cases of sudden deaths, myocarditis and pericarditis that have temporally followed the start of inoculations with mrRNA genetic serum or viral vector serum for C19 and with he risk confirmed by the updated datasheet of Pfizer and Moderna drugs, a minimum procedure to try to reduce the risks of both, the trainee and the instructor, is to add the following blood tests before the start:
BLOOD SMEAR - suggested
- TROPONIN - required
- D-DIMERO - required
- HOMOCYSTEINE - required
- FIBRINOGEN - required
- ANTITHROMBIN - required
A check in this regard, would be suggested to all divers who have taken C19 inoculations, regardless of the course.
