To evaluate the separate cardiovascular response to body immersion and increased environmental pressure during diving, 12 healthy male subjects (mean age 35.2 +/- 6.5 yr) underwent two-dimensional Doppler echocardiography in five different conditions: out of water (basal); head-out immersion while breathing (condition A); fully immersed at the surface while(More)
35 36 Decompression sickness (DCS) is a systemic disorder assumed due to gas bubbles, but 37 additional factors are likely to play a role. Circulating microparticles, vesicular structures 38 with diameters of 0.1 to 1.0 µm, have been implicated but data in human divers has been 39 lacking. We hypothesized that the number of blood-borne annexin V-positive(More)
