Barotrauma is caused by the damage done by increased underwater pressure on the air pocket in the middle ear. Divers usually "equalize" during a dive by pinching their nose shut and blowing, by chewing or by swallowing to push more air into the middle air. However, a descent that is too rapid can overcome a diver's ability to equalize and result in severe pain and even injury to the middle ear. scuba dving is dangrous

How likely are you to die scuba diving? According to the "Diver's Alert Network (DAN) 2010 Diving Fatalities Workshop Report", a diving fatality occurs in 1 out of every 211,864 dives. Whether this seems risky to you or not is a matter of personal opinion, but let's put this number in perspective by looking at the fatality rates of some other activities.

1 out of every 116,666 skydives ended in a fatality in 2000
1 out of every 126,626 marathon runners died of sudden cardiac arrest while running

and barotrauma is completely avoidable. In fact, if a diver respects the safe diving practices taught during scuba diver training, none of these factors should be a problem.

you CAN'T avoid a SHARK. The famed TV wildlife host "Crocodile Hunter" Steve Irwin was killed in 2006 when he was stung through the chest by a stingray, a frequently encountered and usually harmless sea creature. Divers should always treat sea life with great care and respect.
