This detailed monograph looks at the challenge of quantifying the effects of pressure change in living systems. A working view of physical phase mechanics is followed by its theoretical application to decompression theory in diving.

Additional topics range from basic physics to thermodynamics to blood and tissue bubble characteristics to bubble model testing.
The target audience for this text includes the hyperbaric technician, physician, physiologist, physicist, chemist, mathematician, engineer, or biologist.

Bruce Wienke is a Program Manager in the Nuclear Weapons Technology/Simulation and Computing Office at LANL. He contributes to decompression workshops, symposia, educational publications, and technical periodicals. He is the author of seven books, and over 200 technical journal articles. (Hardcover, 568 pages)
