dc.description.abstract A Singaporean naval diver suffered symptoms and signs of cerebral arterial gas embolism (CAGE) following a panicked ascent from a depth of 5-6 metres' sea water while using a Drager LAR V closed-circuit oxygen rebreather system. He presented with altered mental status and paresis. CAGE due to gas mixtures with high oxygen content has seldom been reported. The diver had no sequelae following prompt recompression therapy. This positive clinical outcome may be attributable to the high oxygen content in the diver's inspired gas and/or the promptness of recompression. en_US
