Abstract : CONCLUSIONS: Changes in the EKG of rabbits suggest a rather stable nature of metabolic distrubances in the heart, following the effect of compressed air on the animals. At the same time, observations indicate possible complete disappearance of disturbances in the myocardium provided there is a certain interval in the effect of elevated atmospheric pressure.
