Abstract:

Animal models of decompression sickness DCS have been developed in various species. The Naval Medical Research Institute NMRI developed a porcine model of DCS through the course of more than 300 dives, encompassing widely diverse dive profiles on air and mixed-gas. Some of these profiles include decompression stops, some do not some profiles include post-dive treatments and others do not. This report provides the collected database of non-saturation porcine dives undertaken to develop the NMRI porcine DCS model. It correlates the dive profiles with summaries of the various observed outcome measures.
