This month's lecture "Managing DCS in Remote Locations"
will be presented by Dr. Nicholas Bird.

Synopsis: Decompression sickness often occurs in remote locations. In such environments, treatment options and local expertise may be lacking. This presentation covers a description of decompression sickness, diagnostic criteria and treatment options, and factors that may help guide decisions about treatment versus evacuation.


The presentation will last approximately 55 minutes, and a 30-minute question-and-answer session will follow. Admission to the lecture is free, and no registration is required. Light refreshments will be served.
