DAN is offering the fourth year of the bimonthly diving medicine/research/safety lecture series. The program helps us expand our dialogue with local divers and facilitate our continuing efforts to develop new talks. This months lecture "In-Water Recompression: Pros and Cons" will be given by Dr. Matias Nochetto. The rationale of using pressure to treat DCS is relatively easy to understand. Using the water column pressure is a compelling idea, but does in-water treatment offer the same risks and benefits as treatment in a hyperbaric chamber? Is in-water recompression an alternative to standard treatment or is it a heroic resource for remote diving operations? This lecture will consider the pros and cons of in-water recompression to help prepare those who may face this critical decision. The DAN Lecture Series is held bimonthly on the first Wednesday of every other month, 7:00-8:30 p.m. Doors will open at 6:15 p.m. for a pre-event social, and light refreshments will be served. The presentation begins at 7 p.m. and will last approximately 45-55 minutes. A 30-minute question-and-answer session will follow. Admission to the lecture is free, and no registration is required. We hope you will join us for this special evening — well see you on Wednesday, February 5!
