Abstract
The biomedical problems of survival are divisible into several categories. Most immediate are those produced directly by the wet, cold, dark, high pressure climate. These include but are not restricted to an increased resistance to breathing during exertion and at rest; central nervous system narcosis by nitrogen and probably any other inert gas; long slow decompression necessary for safe elimination of excessive inert gas from the tissues; toxicity of oxygen at high pressures; loss of body heat during prolonged submergence and complex interactions of these factors.
