In Water Recompression (Iwr) says
Upon return to the surface from a deep technical dive offshore or in a remote location the team of divers is faced with the situation we all dread. One of us suffers decompression illness (DCI). The statement that reverberates through everyone’s head but no one says it is, “I feel lucky that it was not me,” and the haunting question remains…”what are you going to do”? The word “lucky” may strike a chord with some, but we think it is apropos.
We say lucky because the target audience’s diving profiles coupled with the poorly understood risk factors for DCI lend themselves to the philosophy that it is simply a matter of when you will experience your first issue.

Explore the options for management of DCI in a remote location or in any situation when treatment in a hospital-based recompression chamber is significantly delayed.
