In Water Recompression Class Underway

The In Water Recompression class is under way. It is the first of its kind in Hawaii. Students are learning how to treat decompression sickness when a recompression chamber is a long ways away. In Water Recompression can prevent serious consequences of decompression sickness and there is no chamber near by. However, it does not eliminate the need for the diver with DCS to be treated at a chamber. It only buys you time to get to the chamber.
