Treatment of diving emergencies.
Recognition of condition attributable to the environmental changes experienced by divers will facilitate appropriate treatment. The diagnosis of these conditions rarely requires sophisticated imaging or electrophysiologic testing. Divers who have suspected DCI, in addition to general supportive measures, should be administered fluids and oxygen and transported to a recompression chamber. For diving-related conditions, on-line consultation is available from the Divers Alert Network, Durham, NC (919-684-8111).
