Effect of exposure to compressed air and elevated oxygen levels on bone blood flow in the rabbit.

Abstract

As the pathogenesis of dysbaric osteonecrosis is not fully understood, we investigated the effects of compressed air, decompression, and elevated oxygen levels on bone blood flow. Bone blood flow was measured in 4 groups of rabbits using the radioactive-labeled microsphere technique. In the Control and Oxygen groups it was measured at normal pressure (1 ATA… (More)
