Re: Diving with asthma

The biggest piece of advice we can give on this subject is always going to be "consult a physician with knowledge of diving".

Asthma of any type used to be an automatic medical contradiction to diving. The views on it over the years have changed and relaxed somewhat, but in the long run a doctor with experience dealing with the effects of dry compressed breathing air and asthma is going to be the smartest bet.
