    Andreas Møllerløkken
    Department of Circulation and Medical Imaging, Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Trondheim, Norway
    Diving Hyperb Med 41:124-8. 2011
    ..To test this, the aim of the present paper was to compare the number of venous gas bubbles observed following a short, deep and a shallow, long air dive performed dry in a hyperbaric chamber and following actual dives in open water...
