Abstract

The purpose of this project was twofold: (1) measure the change in total plasma phospholipids due to rapid decompression, and (2) measure the effects of rapid decompression on selected hematological parameters. An attempt has been made to show that an increase in phospholipids following rapid decompression does occur. This attempt was made to substantiate the Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation (DIC) Theory of the etiology of decompression sickness. (See more in text)
