I see some good information and thoughts coming out, regardless of any merits / demerits of a potential civil case.

Standard American Red Cross CPR/AED training covers the use of public AED's - if you have questions on them, take the half day class (required annually). The American Heart Assn. also offers a class. One important point is that to work, the AED must have charged batteries... hmmmm... guess we'll see where this goes.

If you were suffering from the effects of DCS, odds are no flight attendant would know what you were talking about unless they were divers, though one would think that on a flight from a dive destination they would have this knowledge. Would be interesting to hear from the airlines (or attendants) if they provide such training to the attendants.

Does the airline have any obligation to offer you O2? Would there be O2 available? Has anyone had any eral-life experience with this situation?
