After three sessions in the chamber, the diver has lingering symptoms in her legs. An MRI did not reveal any abnormalities, and the diver continues to dive albeit conservatively. Notes from DAN : Muscular leg weakness after a dive should always be treated as an emergency, and divers should receive a full neurological evaluation, first aid oxygen, and evacuation to the nearest emergency room, where proper steps can be taken to ensure timely treatment and the best possible outcome.
The use of oxygen first aid increases the probability that symptoms will resolve and should be started as soon as possible. In this case, after 45 minutes of breathing oxygen, symptoms improved but did not resolve completely.
