Title: The Influence of Increased Barometric Pressures on the Blood Cell Count and Hematocrit Readings of Divers.
Author: Van Der Aue, OE; Brinton, ES; Kellar, RJ
Abstract: Comparative blood examinations were made on twenty five subjects before and immediately after completing 282 dives of various depths, exposures and diving procedures. Resulting from these dives were 27 cases of compressed air illness requiring treatment by recompression and 25 cases of mild compressed air illness not requiring recompression. A slight decrease in the red blood cell count was found following most dives. In the greater majority of dives there was a moderate but consistent leukocytosis following the dive. A higher white count was found in subjects who made working dives than those who made resting dives.
