Exposure to high pressures (HP) has been associated with the development of the high pressure neurological syndrome (HPNS) in deep-divers and experimental animals. In contrast, many diving mammals are naturally able to withstand very high pressures. Although at a certain pressure range humans are also able to perform to some extent, the severe signs of HPNS at higher pressures motivated the research on the pathophysiology underlying this syndrome rather than on possible adaptive mechanisms… CONTINUE READING
