    Unfortunately, this happened in the US. Specifically, the gulf area. Hyperbaric units are rare as hen's teeth down here. There's essentially nothing between Tampa and Mobile unless you're military and can get treated at Pensacola. The best thing you can do is know where your nearest hyperbaric unit is or call DAN and put them in contact with the hospital staff.
