Saturday Morning Physics | Physics of “The Bends” – The Mechanics Behind Decompression Sickness

Jens-Christian Meiners, Professor (U-M Physics and Biophysics)

Decompression sickness is a disease that affects scuba divers when they ascend too rapidly from depth. It is caused by gas bubbles that form in the blood and tissue when the pressure drops. Professor Meiners will discuss the physics of gas bubble formation, their effects on our body with a special emphasis on the spinal cord, and how we can treat them.
