|Abstract:||The Hyperbaric Treatment Center (HTC) at the University of Hawaii, has evaluated and treated over 1100 divers for dysbaric disease from 1983 to 2001. We describe some epidemiological parameters and compare trends between local residents and tourist divers in this article. Data obtained from this review were analyzed for age, gender, type of injury and resident status. While trends in Hawaii have mirrored national figures, we did determine that there were some significant differences between resident and tourist divers' patterns of injury over this period of time.|
