TREAT­MENT

Asian Diver (English) - - Courses -

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).
