Decompression Sickness in Miami

We just heard about a friends daughter getting 8 hyperbaric treatments for what sounds like at least a type 2 DCS or possibly an AGE (she is completely paralyzed on one side) and symptoms have not subsided. We are unsure about what type of chamber was used but it was at a FL hospital, nor do we know how long the treatments were or the depth of each treatment.

It’ll be interesting to see if the patient was treated with any US NAVY Dive Tables (not monoplace modified tables).

Any comments on this would be great.
If if your facility does receive such symptoms without any dive information (if patient doesn’t recall any of the depths and dive times) how would you treat this patient? How deep, how long?
