Abstract : Two important analytical techniques in biomedical research have been increasingly utilized in hyperbaric physiology over the past 12 years. Doppler ultrasonic bubble detection on the one hand and mass spectrometry on the other have been used to demonstrate responses to both elevated pressure and decompression which have previously been only conjecture. Both techniques have raised controversies, yet both, properly used, are capable not only of resolving them but also resolving many of the questions which have remained unanswered. The article discusses the 'state-of-the-art' of these two techniques in hyperbaric medicine and some of the more promising areas for the future. (Author)
