RNLI Case Study

Each year, an average of 14 divers die in UK and Irish waters with the vast majority of lives lost when divers suffer cardiac-related events whilst under water.

Over a three year period the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) has placed three Wellpoints at a variety of dive centres and offered visitors free cardiac health checks.

Over 3,500 divers have made use of one of the RNLI Wellpoints to date. The result is many divers have heeded the warning and taken action to improve their cardiac health.’
