Abstract : Studies on 17 dogs, wearing a full bladder suit and helmet while connected to an automatic oxygen regulator, show that no apparent residual pulmonary pathology results following explosive decompression (30 msec) through 10 psi and 14 psi. Possible reasons for the essentially normal appearing pulmonary condition are discussed.
