||Bubble formation and decompression sickness on direct ascent from shallow air saturation diving
||Feb. 1993, Vol.64, No.2, p.121-125. Illus. 21 ref.
||To find the minimum supersaturation pressure for detectable bubble formation and for contraction of decompression sickness (DCS), three shallow air saturation dives were performed at depths of 6m, 7m and 8m. One bubble was shown in the 6m dive group, a small number of bubbles were seen in some subjects in the 7m dive while all subjects in the 8m dive presented various amounts of bubbles. Four subjects in the 8m dive suffered from DCS and required recompression treatment. The minimum depth for detectable bubble formation was assessed at around 6m and the direct ascent from saturation at 8m seems to have a high risk of DCS.
