Freediving Medicine | Prevention to Management
March 19 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Ever wonder what happens to your body before you have a blackout? What about how a mask squeeze? All mammals have the Mammalian Diving Reflex. How does it differ between humans and other mammals? What are the effects on your blood and freediving? These questions and more will be answered by Dr. Jani Valdivia, MD, FAANS. Dr. Valdivia is a Neurosurgeon with BayCare Medican Group in Tampa, Florida and an international Freediving record-holder and instructor for AIDA. Learn from Jani, as many freedivers know him, about the science behind the process that happens in your body when these phenomenons happen.
If you plan to attend, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or 813-832-6669 so, we can have enough refreshments for everyone.
