      Decompression sickness (DCS; also known as divers' disease, the bends, aerobullosis, or caisson disease) describes a condition arising from dissolved gases coming out of solution into bubbles inside the body on most commonly refers to problems arising from underwater diving decompression (i.e., during ascent), but may be experienced in other depressurisation events   These caissons were enormous compressed air boxes used to build riverine piers and abutments anchoring the bridges. Caisson meant faster and cheaper construction, but there was a hidden costcaisson disease (decompression sickness). Within caissons, workers labored at pressures as high as 55 psig and caisson disease was ://

In Decompression of Compressed air workers in Civil Engineering. è(Ed. R. I. McCallum) Oriel   The development of decompression meters is historically reviewed.

The theory of the popular automatic decompression meter marketed by Scubapro is critically discussed, and it is shown that the meter's time constant varies inversely with dive depth. Thus, the meter is a ‘multitissue’ device. The meter's performance is compared with the US Navy's ‘no decompression limits’.

Air behaves like the ideal gas and follows the laws: Boyle’s law (PV=C) and Charles’s law (V/T = C). Read here to know about the basics of compressing air and appreciate the reason for air compressor following polytropic or isentropic compression instead of isothermal or adiabatic one.
