Decompression sickness is a condition resulting from sudden decompression which causes nitrogen bubbles to form in the body’s tissue. Decompression sickness can cause pain in the muscles and joints, cramps, numbness, nausea, and paralysis. Hyperbaric oxygen is a common treatment in response to decompression sickness.

Hyperbaric oxygen will provide therapy via increased counter-diffusion gradient at the blood bubble interface, oxygenation of hypoxic tissue, and gas bubble reduction. Decompression sickness is serious and potentially lethal but if it is treated fairly soon there should not be very many worries.
