The study was to measure the prophylactic effect of denitrogenation at various altitudes and to determine whether breathing oxygen at altitude is as effective in the prevention of aeroembolism as breathing oxygen at ground level. Each of the subjects breathed pure oxygen during ascent and while at various altitudes. Study concluded that denitrogenation during ascent was more effective level in reducing the incidence of aeroembolism than breathing it at ground level prior to ascent.
