Abstract:

The monograph describes the manifold processes arising in the organism with an increase in the pressure of oxygen, air, and artificial gas mixtures. Various types of physiological effect of raised pressures are analyzed in the light of contemporary concepts of the stimulus, the process of irritation, and physiological and pathological response reactions. For the study of the state a human in the conditions of the applied pressures of the gaseous environment there are developed methodical procedures which allow characterization of nervous processes from elementary unconditioned responses to complicated cortical reactions. As a result of the investigations three types of suppression of the work of the brain which arise under the action of raised pressures are singled out.
