Abstract:

Rats were exposed to 90 PSIG on an 8020 helium-oxygen gas mixture and decompressed on two different schedules, designed to produce moderate and severe bends. Serum samples were obtained immediately after the dive and analyzed for lipid distribution, serum lactic dehydrogenase, lipoproteins, haptoglobin, glucose, and lactate. The results of these determinations are discussed in relation to decompression sickness. Author
