AbstractTwo cases of unusual severe dysbarism are reported. One case occurred after working in compressed air at a pressure of 2.05 kg/cm2 (29 psi) for a duration of 27 min; the second case, after working for a duration of 6 h at a pressure of only 1.0 kg/cm2 (14.2 psi). The first case presented a combination of symptoms resembling 'the chokes' and 'the staggers,' progressing into shock probably due to micro-air embolism. The second suffered chest pain and 'the chokes,' complicated by an underlying chest infection. Both were treated successfully by recompression.
