UNLABELLED Two groups of divers were compressed to 500 msw with heliox (n = 3) and trimix (n = 3). They were followed with repeated neuropsychological and neurological tests during compression, at stable intermediate depths, and at 500 msw. For the heliox group there was a marked increase in tremor and EEG slow waves and reduction in handgrip strength. For the trimix group the tremor increase did not occur, but the EEG changes were the same as in the heliox group. On motor tests only the trimix… CONTINUE READING
