Bubble formation and platelet activation are major factors contributing to decompression sickness. We hypothesized that pretreatment with hyperbaric oxygen immediately before a dive may reduce bubble formation and platelet activation in humans. Five healthy volunteer subjects (1 female and 4 males; age, 33.6±2.9 years; height, 170±3 cm; weight, 71±8 kg, body mass index, 24.5±22.0 kg/m2) participated in this study with a 4-day protocol. On day 1, a multiplace hyperbaric chamber was used to… CONTINUE READING
