  • Differential Diagnosis of Decompression Illnessregister now button

    WEDNESDAY, June 27: 8am-5pm

        Decompression illness (DCI) is a diagnosis assigned to a variety of acute conditions where the suspected cause is occurrence of free gas in circulation and tissues, caused by decompression.  Individual manifestations are not specific for DCI, but a time proximity to decompression and some patterns of manifestations suffice to establish diagnosis in most cases. Early recognition of DCI and administration of hyperbaric oxygen (HBO2) is important for successful treatment. However, some serious post-decompression manifestations may be coincidental and if mistaken for DCI, precious time to provide proper treatment may be lost - for example, in a case of stroke.
        Current practice in evaluation of acute post-dive conditions vary from taking medical history and physical examination (H&P) only, to a routine extensive testing for possible coincidental conditions. Both approaches can sometimes result with misdiagnosis and lost treatment opportunity.

    Additional diagnostic tests including blood tests and imaging have been discussed quite extensively in recent years but no clear guidelines have been provided as yet.
         The aim of this workshop is to review the most common coincidental post-decompression conditions that could be confused for DCI and discussion of when and what additional testing is needed to avoid misdiagnosis. The topics will include serous neurological conditions, neurological conditions resistant to HBO2 treatment, serious cardiorespiratory conditions, post-dive abdominal discomfort, cutaneous manifestations, and osteomuscular aches and pains.
