  • Bubbles in live-stranded dolphins 

    Dennison, Sophie; Moore, Michael J.; Fahlman, Andreas; Moore, Kathleen M. T.; Sharp, Sarah M.; Harry, Charles T.; Hoppe, Jane M.; Niemeyer, Misty E.; Lentell, Betty J.; Wells, Randall S. (The Royal Society, 2011-10-12)
    Bubbles in supersaturated tissues and blood occur in beaked whales stranded near sonar exercises, and post-mortem in dolphins bycaught at depth and then hauled to the surface. To evaluate live dolphins for bubbles, liver, ...

    Hooker, Sascha K.; Fahlman, Andreas; Moore, Michael J.; Aguilar De Soto, Natacha; Bernaldo de Quiros, Yara; Brubakk, A. O.; Costa, Daniel P.; Costidis, Alexander M.; Dennison, Sophie; Falke, K. J.; Fernandez, Antonio; Ferrigno, Massimo; Fitz-Clarke, J. R.; Garner, M. M.; Houser, Dorian S.; Jepson, Paul D.; Ketten, Darlene R.; Kvadsheim, P. H.; Madsen, Peter T.; Pollock, N. W.; Rotstein, David S.; Rowles, Teresa K.; Simmons, S. E.; Van Bonn, W.; Weathersby, P. K.; Weise, M. J.; Williams, T. M.; Tyack, Peter L. (Royal Society, 2011-12-21)
    Decompression sickness (DCS; ‘the bends’) is a disease associated with gas uptake at pressure. The basic pathology and cause are relatively well known to human divers. Breath-hold diving marine mammals were thought to be ...
  • Decompression sickness (‘the bends’) in sea turtles 

    Garcia-Parraga, D.; Crespo-Picazo, J. L.; Bernaldo de Quiros, Yara; Cervera, V.; Marti-Bonmati, L.; Diaz-Delgado, J.; Arbelo, Manuel; Moore, Michael J.; Jepson, Paul D.; Fernandez, Antonio (Inter-Research, 2014-10-16)
    Decompression sickness (DCS), as clinically diagnosed by reversal of symptoms with recompression, has never been reported in aquatic breath-hold diving vertebrates despite the occurrence of tissue gas tensions sufficient ...
  • The use of diagnostic imaging for identifying abnormal gas accumulations in cetaceans and pinnipeds 

    Dennison, Sophie; Fahlman, Andreas; Moore, Michael J. (Frontiers Media, 2012-06-06)
    Recent dogma suggested that marine mammals are not at risk of decompression sickness due to a number of evolutionary adaptations. Several proposed adaptations exist. Lung compression and alveolar collapse that terminate ...
