SCUBA and Freediving Don't Mix

Once you have done a tank dive, you are DONE freediving. Think of it as shaking a soda pop, things start to fizz. Worse, when you are deep freediving the bubbles compress and get thru your lungs to the arterial side, go places like your brain, etc. and cause clotting.
Another issue is the fact that there is a difference in tissue loading since while freediving less of the blood goes into your extremities and more into your brain.
