    • Re-dissolve N2 bubble
    • Counter-diffusion of N2 out of bubble
  • Vasoconstriction
    • Reduces oedema by slowing down blood flow
  • Hyperoxygenation
    • % of O2 carried in plasma, elevating tissue O2 for 4-6 hours
  • Neovasularisation
    • New-blood vessels begin to grow in the problem area (granulation)
  • Enhanced Immune Response
    • Increased resistance to anaerobes
    • Decrease toxin production, increased inactivation
    • Improved wound healing
  • Attenuation of ischemia-reperfusion injury
