On admission to the hospital, the diver was given oxygen. While he was in the emergency department, a cerebrovascular accident was considered by the doctor. He was referred to a neurologist as a result and a Cranial CT scan was undertaken. This was ruled out and the diver was managed for DCS Type II. It was found that while he could sit up on his own, he could not stand due to severe dizziness. It was also found that his tongue was deviated to the left.
He underwent a US Navy Table 6 Treatment. After this treatment, the diver could stand but staggered when trying to walk, falling to one side, and he was still dizzy.
The decision was made for the diver to undergo a second Table 6 Treatment. When reassessed after this treatment, it was found that while there was improvement, he still had trouble with his balance.
The diver underwent a third and final recompression treatment (Table 9).
