Neurological signs and symptoms of decompression illness are important. Some can be obvious and some can be subtle. This 5 minute neurology exam is a condensed version of the neurology exam we would do at the DDRC Healthcare. It is a useful tool to assess a diver following a diving incident. It is easy to repeat to assess progression of neurological signs and symptoms over time.

A copy can be downloaded to laminate and keep on your dive boat.
