Abstract : The presented data shows that in the absence of clinically expressed signs of decompression sickness in the nervous system, definite morphological changes can result from gas forming in the body after decompression. From this it follows that the body possesses a definite degree of tolerance in relation to the post-decompression aeroembolism whose excess leads to an expressed disease. When a person feels unwell, or when there is an excess of local sensations of sickness in people subjected the day before to the influence of increased or lowered atmospheric pressure, it is essential that careful and thorough research be carried out to expose effaced forms of decompression sickness, provoked by 'mute' gas bubbles.
