Diver rescued in Javea


A 55-YEAR-OLD Spanish diver was rescued over the Easter weekend and taken to the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) facility in Castello.

The man fell ill with decompression syndrome as he was diving at around 14 metres along the Javea coastline.

He was taken to the Port of Javea by boat, where he was attended by the SAMU medical team, who decided to transfer him to Castello.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a medical treatment which enhances the body’s natural healing process by inhalation of 100 per cent oxygen in a total bodychamber, where atmospheric pressure is increased and controlled.
