Type 2 DCS

A more serious form of decompression sickness, characterized by symptoms that typically fall into three categories: neurological, inner ear and/or cardiopulmonary — such as impaired gait, bladder control problems, paralysis, a change in mental status, vertigo, dizziness, vomiting, dry cough or chest pain. These complaints, which are due to high bubble loads in the lungs, can compromise the lungs’ ability to function, threatening the affected diver’s health, and even life if treatment is not sought promptly.
