Given the patient's history of breath-hold diving with a risk profile for decompression sickness, as well as the clinical and neuroimaging findings, the patient was transferred to a hyperbaric chamber. Recompression was carried out in the hyperbaric chamber at 2.8 atmospheres absolute (ATA). With a progressive resolution of symptoms, treatment was completed using US Navy Table 6. Total elapsed time is 285 minutes, ascent time between stops (18 to 9 meters and 9 to 0 meters) is 30 minutes (3 minutes/10 minutes), and maximum pressure is 18 meters of seawater (msw).
