Protective mechanisms in hypobaric decompression.

Abstract

BACKGROUND To reduce bubble formation and growth during hypobaric exposures, a denitrogenation or nitrogen "washout" procedure is performed. This procedure consists of prebreathing oxygen fractions as close to one as possible (oxygen prebreathe) prior to depressurization before ascending to the working altitude or low spacesuit pressures. During the NASA… (More)
