||Delayed treatment of bubble related illness in diving - Review of standard protocol
||2004, Vol.55, No.1/4, p.103-120. 93 ref.
||This article reviews the literature concerning the existing standard treatment of decompression illness. The effects on prognosis of a delay in receiving recompression treatment are examined and therapeutic options are reviewed: recompression, hyperbaric or normobaric oxygen therapy, choice of fluids for rehydration, drug therapy. It is concluded that there is no evidence to suggest that the existing recommendations for the treatment of decompression illness should be changed.
