DCS Support Group started on Yahoo! Groups

Here is a letter from a Leila Cara, a PADI dive instructor, about a DCS support group that she has started on Yahoo! Groups. I've not seen any such thing before but think that it might serve a good purpose for some people. Care must be taken to prevent it's derogation by people who might use it for venting anger. I will watch it with great interest.



Hi,
I have started a DCS support group to help those recovering from DCS. I would like to alert the diving medical community of this new group. I started it because of a DCS incident 1 year ago and realized there is little support after leaving the hospital. I would love for you, or anyone to visit.

Please spread the word and post wherever suitable.
Thank you again,
Leila
