Decompression sickness in diving is recognized as a multi-
factorial phenomenon, depending on several factors, such
as decompression rate and individual susceptibility. The
Doppler ultrasonic detection of circulating venous bubbles
after diving is considered a useful index for decompression
safety because of the relationship between bubbles and
decompression sickness risk. This study aimed to assess the
effects of ascent rate, age, maximal oxygen uptake (VO2
max ), and percent body fat on the production of bubbles
after diving. Fifty male recreational divers performed two
dives at 35 m during 25 min and then ascended in one
case at 9 m/min and in the other case at 17 m/min.

In this study, published in 1999, doctors Temple, Ball,
Weathersby, Parker, and Survanshi compiled descriptions
of DCS cases that occurred after prospective air or
nitrogen-oxygen research dives with the detailed dive
profiles associated with each case.
The aim of this collection of more than 8000 exposures
and more than 400 DCS cases was to allow the analysis of
the relationship between the dive profiles and
manifestations of DCS».

The increased hyperbaric pressure influences the nervous
system during deep dives. The divers may experience
hand tremors, postural instability, gastrointestinal
problems, somnolence, and cognitive dysfunction. The
neurological symptoms and signs that may occur have
been termed high-pressure neurological syndrome
(HPNS). This syndrome has been known for more than
