THE INFLUENCE OF COLD WATER ON A DIVER’S BODY Thermal protection is an important factor during diving. Its failure can cause thermoregulatory disorders. Without extra protection, most divers consider the temperature of 27°C as comfortable when under water. But what if you dive in colder waters? Or longer and deeper? Learn about the factors that affect your thermal balance and safety during the dive: 1. Body cooling Under water both diver’s body and mind must be efficient at all times. A diver whose temperature has fallen down begins to think and act unreasonably and thoughtlessly. Proper...

3. Body cooling reduces the blood supply When the body cools down, there are changes in circulation, too. The blood vessels constrict causing a reduced blood supply to the extremities. Fingers go numb followed by the whole hands and feet. Body cooling usually gets more serious at the end of the dive. Blood flow in the extremities decreases dramatically. The palms, which were well supplied with blood at the beginning of the dive, become numb and stiff. 4. The elimination of fluids The human body constantly heats up the fluids to ensure the proper functioning of all organs. In the case of...

6. Body cooling increases the frequency of breathing In cold water breathing rate increases. When a diver’s body starts to cool down, his breath become sudden, rapid and uncontrolled. The body undergoes a so called hyperventilation, which cause breathing to become even more rapid. And this increases the air consumption. 7. Hypothermia Symptoms of body cooling can lead to hypothermia, which is a condition when the body can no longer maintain its natural temperature. Its effects for the body are very serious. The sensation of cold is influenced by other factors, too, such as low blood...

“When filming in Newfoundland and the Canadian Arctic, the beauty of the environment stretches dives into very long durations. We’re diving on icebergs, filming WWII shipwrecks, exploring deep iron mines and swimming with whales. I use the full heated undergarment with gloves to offer me good dexterity and comfort for operating camera controls. Without it, I simply could not get the job done. Santi has provided me with critical tools for expedition level diving in the coldest water.” Jill Heinerth A pioneering underwater explorer and filmmaker Founder of

Heated Gloves Hands are the first to get cold. When chilled and numb they cause discomfort. But they are also incapable of proper handling of inflator or valves, taking pictures or filmmaking. Capable hands are also helpful if you want to quickly escape troubles underwater. Heated gloves are very soft, and do not hinder the movements in any way. The thin heating cables are arranged and sewn in such a way that they are practically imperceptible. Under your dry glove you don’t feel the difference – Is it your normal gloves or the heated ones? But you can feel the difference in the comfort you...

“My name is Kirill Egorov, and I am GUE Technical and Cave Instructor. I am teaching and diving for fun all over the world - and quite often in cold waters like Baltic Sea, Ordinskaya Cave in Urals, or caves and wrecks in Croatia. For many years a factor significantly affecting my comfort during longer cave or wreck dives was cold - with my hands suffering the most. Quite recently I have started using SANTI heated gloves - and this was a huge positive dramatic change. This summer I did several dives on Mars wreck in Sweden (with water temperatures as low as 4 degrees), Orda (with water...

Heated Vest The trunk is one of the most important part of diver’s body. The lungs and the heart sit in it. When we feel cold, the heart works faster and the lungs constrict, which significantly affects the quality and safety of diving. The vest is designed to be worn between a thin base layer and undersuit. This configuration allows most of the generated heat to be passed directly to the diver’s body and not to the thick undersuit. Specification: • safety switch preventing from overheating, • maximum heating temperature 45°C, • maximum heating power: 55 W, • run time: SANTI 6 Ah battery /...

“I do use my hands a lot while sidemount diving. They are subject to hard work and strain when I don and doff my stage cylinders, run a wheel  or practice gas switches.  It is nice to exercise these skills in warm waters but my homeland offers only cold and dark quarries and the Baltic sea is nowhere near the Red sea temperature-wise. Add to this running a course where the students perform the set skills and all you do is neutrally buoyant motionless supervision. At first I was a bit worried about all the cables and bulkiness of the heating vest and gloves….but ever since my first cold...
