Abstract : In order to permit the testing of new decompression procedures in a reasonable time frame, a scaled animal preparation was developed. The technique permits the direct observation of bubble formation in vivo under highly controlled environmental conditions. This report presents the basis for such scaling and describes the instrumentation system that was developed. (Author)
