||A study was carried out to gain insight into the special features of bubbles that may form in aviators and astronauts. The growth and decay of bubbles was simulated in two hypobaric decompressions and a hyperbaric one by using a system of equations. The constancy of partial pressures of metabolic gases, unimportant in hyperbaric decompressions, affects bubble size in hypobaric decompressions in inverse relation to the exposure pressure.
