DAN Holding Webinar On Full-Face Snorkel Masks

-

The Divers Alert Network is holding an online webinar today to discuss research on the efficacy of full-face snorkel masks.

According to the overview:

“In the past five years, full face snorkel masks (FFSMs) have exploded in popularity. At first these products were made by a small number of reputable manufacturers, but there is now a broad spectrum of designs of varying quality and no regulation of testing or function. Despite their prevalence, few formal studies have assessed these devices.

“In this webinar, scientists from the Duke University Center for Hyperbaric Medicine & Environmental Physiology will present their recent experimental work assessing a selection of FFSMs. This work concluded that many FFSMs do not work as advertised and some have design features that may even increase risk to the snorkeler.”

The webinar will take place today, December 16th, 2021 at 18:00 Eastern. Check it out below.
