Title Resolution and severity in decompression illness
Bibliographic information May 2009, Vol.80, No.5, p.466-471. 34 ref.
Abstract Study of the terminology of decompression illness (DCI). It is argued that an analysis of clinical outcome, using an approach known as "survival analysis" would be a better basis for classifying cases of DCI than more traditional means of classification, dependent in part on clinical judgment concerning severity and therapy.
