Egypt warns against full-face maschere

Maschera X

Dive-centres and other members of Egypt’s Chamber of Diving & Water Sports (CDWS) have been asked to discourage Red Sea snorkellers from using the full-face maschere that have grown more popular in recent years.

According to the CDWS its advice is based on recent investigation of several incidents that indicated a “recurrence of accidents and injuries” resulting from use of the maschere.

Agendo in collaborazione con il Ministero del Turismo e delle Antichità egiziano, la Camera attira l’attenzione sul “rischio di inalare l’anidride carbonica accumulata all’interno mask prodotto durante la respirazione”.

Si dice che respirare CO2 può causare mal di testa, vertigini e in alcuni casi perdita di coscienza, che potrebbe portare all'annegamento.

Full-face snorkelling masks have been linked with in-water fatalities before, notably following a spate of incidents in Hawaii last year, though the link was not conclusive. The tightly fitting head-straps have also been claimed to make the masks more difficult to remove in an emergency.

Advocates of the masks claim that the natural style of breathing helps to keep users relaxed, and that not needing to grip a mouthpiece makes extended snorkelling more comfortable.

A number of full-face snorkelling masks, which are generally inexpensive, were converted into emergency respirators for use by medical teams in the early days of the coronavirus pandemic.
