There many potential IAHD divers that have a very specific medical condition. Often, their own doctor has insufficient knowledge to assess these potential IAHD divers correctly. As a result the examining medical professional may not have sufficient specialized (diving)knowledge to certify the potential IAHD diver.
In order to prevent this, a team of medical (diving) specialists, devote time and knowledge to the IAHD. If there is any concern regarding a medical certification or rejection, IAHD can contact this team of medical (diving) specialists to get a second opinion.
