It is suggested that the composition of NES platelet membranes may play an important role in preventing pressure-related activation. Expand
Bubble-induced platelet aggregation in a rat model of decompression sickness.
The present study confirms platelet consumption as a potential index for evaluating decompression stress and DCS severity and points to the participation of thrombin generation in the coagulation cascade and platelet activation in bubble-induced platelet aggregation. Expand
How Do Marine Mammals Manage and Usually Avoid Gas Emboli Formation and Gas Embolic Pathology? Critical Clues From Studies of Wild Dolphins
Decompression theory has been mainly based on studies on terrestrial mammals, and may not translate well to marine mammals. However, evidence that marine mammals experience gas bubbles during divingExpand
Measures to prevent microembolization in cardiac surgery and during angiography with special reference to carbon dioxide
If CO2-insufflation of an empty CPB circuit decreases number of gaseous emboli in the prime compared with a conventional CPB Circuit, which holds air before fluid priming, the efficacy of a new mini-diffuser device for CO2 de-airing in a minimally invasive open cardiothoracic wound cavity model and in patients undergoing minimallyvasive open aortic valve surgery is assessed.

Decompression-Related Disorders
The physiological zone from sea level to 3048 m (10,000 ft.) encompasses the pressure to which humans are well adapted, although if appropriately acclimated, they can survive the summit of Earth’sExpand
Pathophysiology and Clinical Implications
Evidence of the biological and clinical detrimental effects of microbubbles as demonstrated by studies in animal models and humans are presented, and management of the microbubble problem is discussed with regard to detection, prevention, and treatment. Expand
Was the appearance of surfactants in air breathing vertebrates ultimately the cause of decompression sickness and autoimmune disease?

The presence of autoimmune disease in air breathing vertebrates, increased autoimmunity and the elevated risk of decompression sickness with age, as well as variable sensitivity to both diseases, can be matched with the appearance of surfactant spots, and eliminating these spots may provide protection against both diseases.
