Normal men have been found to develop pruritus and gas bubble lesions in the skin, and disruption of vestibular function, when breathing nitrogen or neon with oxygen while surrounded by helium at increased ambient pressure. This phenomenon, which occurs at stable ambient pressures, at 1 or many ATA, has been designated the "isobaric gas counterdiffusion syndrome." In a series of analyses and experiments in vivo and in vitro the cause of the syndrome has been established as due to gas… CONTINUE READING
