(n.) Fig.: One who goes deeply into a subject, study, or business.
(n.) Any bird of certain genera, as Urinator (formerly Colymbus), or the allied genus Colymbus, or Podiceps, remarkable for their agility in diving.
(1) We report a case of a sudden death in a SCUBA diver working at a water treatment facility.
(2) After recompression treatment five of 19 divers with primary affection of the brain had slight hemiparesis or dysphasia.
(3) A working knowledge of medical fitness for diving and of diving medical emergencies will assist the nondiving physician in establishing a basic medical history and examination for the student scuba diver.
(4) The implications for other professional divers and for recreational underwater divers who follow standard decompression protocols are reassuring.
(5) In this study, divers' erythrocyte superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity was monitored during high pressure exposure and shown to decrease on average by 20% at depths greater than 150 m. Assay of total red cell SOD protein and activity established that the recorded SOD activity decrement was by loss of immuno-measurable enzyme.
(6) Intake of marine oils may be beneficial to divers under deep diving and to patients during extracorporeal circulation, because this may reduce the microbubble-induced aggregation.
(7) The white hotel has 144 rooms for beach lovers, surfers, divers, trail runners, yogis and spa-toners.
(8) We have determined experimentally the temperature dependence of human erythrocyte spectrin dimer intrinsic viscosity at shear rates 8-12 s-1 using a Cartesian diver viscometer.
(9) In addition, detailed analysis of diving profiles should be used to distinguish the inner ear dysfunction seen in some divers from inner ear barotrauma which may be attributable to IEDCS.
(10) Divers have found the body of one of two oil workers who were missing after four others were badly burnt by an explosion on a platform in the Gulf of Mexico.
(11) Upon exiting the water, the divers did a series of arithmetic computations.
(12) Those divers with records over a three or four year interval (group 1, n = 224) showed a mean reduction of forced vital capacity (FVC) of 240 ml; those with records over a five or more years interval (group 2, n = 123) showed a reduction of FVC of 400 ml.
(13) Indonesian divers have found the black box flight recorders of the AirAsia plane that crashed in the Java Sea a fortnight ago with 162 people on board, the transport ministry has said.
(14) There is much controversy concerning the significance of bone islands and cystic areas; several authors report bone islands and cystic areas to be up to eight times more frequent in compressed air workers and divers and believe that these represent positive evidence of osteonecrosis.
(15) The results demonstrated that divers are able to discriminate among signals emanating from acoustic sources at various distances underwater and to do so at levels well above chance.
(16) Three male divers were studied for 2 days during each of the predive and postdive 1 ATA air control periods and for 7 days at 2.5 ATA (2.3 ATA N2 and 0.2 ATA O2).
(17) It follows a stunt by Spanish police divers who were photographed showing the flag while inspecting the controversial concrete reef.
(18) The results stress the importance of divers' monitoring during their underwater activity and the necessity of improving their physical training.
(19) Analysis indicates that the visual contrast sensitivity, and therefore probably also acuity, of sport divers is not affected up to depths of 40 m. This holds under ideal as well as poor diving conditions.
(20) However, the incidence of Type II decompression sickness, as a percentage of total decompression sickness, was greater in the second half of the decade than in the first, a trend similar to, although more moderate than, recent experience of dysbaric illness amongst sport divers.
(n.) A kind of ocher which is used in some parts of England in marking sheep.
