Abstract : The problem of tremor in diving as part of the High Pressure Nervous Syndrome has been recognized since the mid 1960s. The authors review reports of tremor in diving and discuss methods of objective measurement of tremor. The etiology of tremor is also discussed with specific attention to the question of compression rate and neuro-physiological factors which constitute a sketch of needed research. A matrix of deep dives in which tremor was observed and measured is presented, as well as data from dives in which objective measurement of tremor was axxomplished. (Author)
