As you go about your day-to-day activities, tiny bubbles of nitrogen come and go inside your tissues. This is not a problem unless you happen to experience large changes in ambient pressure, such as those encountered by scuba divers and astronauts. During large, fast pressure drops, these bubbles can grow and lead to decompression sickness, popularly known as "the bends." A study in the Journal of Chemical Physics, which is published by the American Institute of Physics (AIP), may provide a...

A new comparison of two automated blood pressure machines suggests that newer devices are not necessarily better and could be msleading to some people that have high blood pressure. Dr. Robert A. Kloner, Dr. Stanley H. Wishner, and Dr. Johanna Landgraf of Good Samaritan Hospital in Los Angeles discovered that readings were about two points lower, with the automated device compared to the mercury based devices. The older "auscultatory" method uses a stethoscope and a mercury manometer. ...

A wetsuit, worn by divers, windsurfers, and others engaged in water sports, is a garment, made of foamed neoprene that provides thermal insulation, abrasion resistance, and buoyancy.
