Minimize the risk factor

Drawing attention to your condition in an emergency situation is the most important thing to do. Unfortunately, in emergency situations you are probably not in a condition to alert your buddy by yourself; therefore, the DiverGuard® alerts your buddy for you. Just in case you do not receive immediate assistance, the DiverGuard® will ascend you to the surface.

You’re probably wondering, “Isn’t an uncontrolled rapid ascent dangerous?” Under normal conditions, divers should rise to the surface slowly; however, according to the American Heart Association, as soon as a diver is in respiratory distress, they should be brought to the surface as quickly as possible. It is more important to provide urgent ventilation than to prolong oxygen deprivation by surfacing too gradually.
