We used numerical solutions of a system of equations to simulate gas exchanges of bubbles after a decompression, with particular attention to the effect of number of bubble formation sites per unit of tissue. If many bubbles grow, they deplete the excess dissolved gas in the tissue. The consequences are as follows: 1) the many individual bubbles do not become as large as they would if fewer were competing for gas; 2) more gas is evolved when there are many sites; 3) the bubbles are absorbed… CONTINUE READING
