HI all. We have a client who suffers from the wolf parkison white syndrome. He doesn’t have any problems but I would like to have some info on that and also whether people with this syndrome can dive. Thanks a lot for your help!!

Wolf parkinson white syndrome is a condition that can present various degrees of functional derangement - from minimal electrical disturbances at the EKG to more serious episodes of dysrithmia that might cause loss of control and/or consciousness and sudden death. In such conditions, while underwater, there is high risk of drowning and death. Therefore, clearing an individual with WPWS for diving requires knowing more about the kind and degree of the particular case. If the individual has not suffered from any episode of paroxismal tacycardia and is not on any cardio-active medication and has a normal response to stress EKG and, on top of that, has a medical clearance for such sport activity it is likely that such person could be cleared for diving. But, in all other cases I think that you should not let him dive – you’ll be responsible for everything… Hope this info helps.
