Decompression Sickness (Example)

Document Preview:

Decompression Sickness Name Date Case Study: Decompression Sickness 1. As long as the gas in the ocean is unaffected it will remain in the ocean. However if it leaves the ocean and enters the lungs of the diver the pressures of the inside of lungs and that of the surrounding water will be equal. This is what is referred to as ambient pressure. The deeper under ocean water one goes the greater the pressure will be. At a dive of 80 feet the pressure will continue to increase. This applies to major elements of compressed air such as oxygen and nitrogen. As the depth increases the divers experience narcotic effect (Netzel 2003). Narcotic effect is likened to alcohol inebriation; the greater the PN2 the more severe the narcosis. This can lead to neurological impairments with symptoms such as impaired judgment slowed response time loss of short-term memory and even the shoulders which is one of the symptoms if not treated well or treatment is delayed may lead to permanent paralysis of the part affected. In the worst case scenario the victims could die as they suffer breathing problems thus their circulatory and pulmonary systems are impaired in the long run. References Doolette D. J & Gorman D. F.
