[Is It Possible to Dive Again After Decompression Sickness?]

[Article in French]
Jean Morin et al. Rev Infirm. .

Abstract

Decompression sickness in underwater diving exposes the diver to a risk of clinical sequelae which require specific care. In the absence of sequelae or after clinical recovery, the question of diving again may be raised. As part of a secondary prevention approach, the hyperbaric practitioner measures the physical, psychological and social impact of re-exposure to pressure and the immersion of the patient-diver.
