Dodecafluoropentane (DDFPe) and Decompression Sickness-Related Mortality in Rats

Download Adobe Acrobat Reader DocumentDodecafloropentane emulsion (DDFPe) is not indicated in the treatment of decompression injury. In the setting of rapid decompression from a hyperbaric environment, it is likely that DDFPe's microbubbles act as nuclei for the formation of larger bubbles. DDFPe, because of its quasi-bubble state, is able to transfer far more oxygen than other materials and shows great promise in other indications such as stroke, heart attack, cancer, traumatic brain injury, blood loss, sickle cell crisis, and other conditions. However, it seems that treatment of decompression injury is not appropriate. This research provided a better understanding of the mechanism of action of DDFPe. Dated: 2015
