Abstract : Underwater communication is a field of communication where much of the developments have not taken place yet as it is a challenging environment to deal with. A prevalent technique to explore the underwater environment is `diving'. Underwater diving is considered to be a very dangerous as well as an adventurous task. The reason behind this is underwater environment is always varying in terms of temperature and pressure. Divers when dive through deep sea beds, heart beat and blood pressure keeps on varying. Sometimes they fail to inhale properly because they may not get sufficient airflow. In such cases, divers have to communicate with buoy station. But many times, the communication fails and divers die out of these issues. So a continuous monitoring of diver health is important where in diver can communicate and get the issues solved. There are many researches done on this issue. But none of them are up to the mark. This is the reason why we need a survey on this topic.
