  • This is substantially less than our normal atmospheric pressure. This means that the nitrogen in our body will release quicker than normal and as a result we expose ourselves to a much greater risk of getting decompression sickness. This is the primary reason why we cannot fly after scuba diving.
By scuba diving and flying soon after, increase your risk of Decompression Sickness (DCS) or “the bends” due to decreased ambient pressure on the plane… Decompression Sickness is caused nitrogen bubbles forming in the bloodstream and tissues of the body.By scuba diving and flying soon after, increase your risk of Decompression Sickness
Decompression Sickness
Emergency medicine. Decompression sickness (abbreviated DCS; also called divers' disease, the bends, aerobullosis, and caisson disease) is a medical condition caused by dissolved gases emerging from solution as bubbles inside the body tissues during decompression.

Flying after diving is dangerous because it can trigger DCS, a condition that is expensive to treat and can be fatal. DCS (Decompression Sickness / The Bends) is the most-common, but easily avoidable, scuba diving injury. As already mentioned on this page, divers increase the level of nitrogen in their blood system.
