The symptoms I experience on extreme weather days echo the symptoms of decompression sickness.

Yesterday I was reading a book where a character experienced decompression sickness (the bends). I thought to myself "Gee, that sounds like the fibro flare from hell."

Today, I start getting a flare. As usual, I start looking for the cause, and I realized that our weather went from low 80's to mid 90's, and any major temperature or high/low pressure system usually triggers a flare.

Decompression sickness is caused by moving from one pressure to another too quickly. Major weather changes usually involve a change in air pressure. Could it be that our bodies are oversensitive to pressure changes, and that weather-related flares could be similar to a mild case of the bends?

Decompression Sickness in D&D

So I've got a situation here I'd love some advice on.

My players just did an underwater adventure, they were down at about 500ft depth for around 24 hours. They know that the bends are a thing, but their general go to when they finish an adventure is to Word of Recall back to the Cleric's temple (12th level PCs).

My question is this: What would be both reasonable and fun/interesting for the PCs to have happen if they did that? Teleported straight from 500ft to surface pressure (actually their stronghold is probably at like 7,000ft elevation if that changes things).

Not just what happens in the real world, but how do I translate real world things into fun game mechanics and reasonable results?

Decompression Sickness and Free Diving

Going on a trip soon and plan to do a lot of snorkelling. I'm new to free-diving, but I can comfortably dive down to around 12m and hold my breath for around 1.5minutes. I've read that free-divers can get decompression sickness, but I was wondering if that is still possible even when descending to the comparatively low depth that I do.

I've read that descents should be measured cumulatively and that no more than 120m cumulatively per day is recommended. Would that mean if I did 10m at a time, I could only do it 12 times before I reached my limit? I've definitely come back from a multi-hour snorkelling session in the past, where I've descended to different depths (between 3 and 12m) likely a few dozen times, and felt dizzy/nauseous. Does anyone have additional information or advice for me? thanks.

Rules on Decompression Sickness and Explosive Decompression?

I was looking through the 3rd level spells (playing in a friend's campaign and my Druid reached 5th) and noticed this line in Water Walk:

> If you target a creature submerged in a liquid, the spell carries the target to the surface of the liquid at a rate of 60 feet per round.

That's 600 feet per minute, for an hour. For comparison, most scuba certification organizations recommend an ascent limit of 30 feet per minute, to avoid decompression sickness, twenty times slower than you fire at the surface with Water Walk.

So my question is, what kind of crunchy consequences should there be for rapid ascent and decompression in Dungeons and Dragons?

Nitrox changes the ratio of oxygen and nitrogen to give you a longer no deco time. Why is oxygen never considered a risk? It obviously gets bound to hemoglobin and is used by our bodies but in excess it will equilibrate with our blood and tissue just like any gas would. Why do we only worry about the nitrogen and why does nitrox give you more time? Is nitrogen significantly more soluble?

Is it like a "normal" thing that every Diver gets once atleast or is it as dangerous that I've read? What does it feels like? It's the only thing really that kinda scares me about diving more and deeper.

I spoke to another diver who I took the course with and she told med that she had felt headache and numb hands after the first dive but she just ignored it and continued diving. That are some of the symptoms so is she just plain stupid or does she know more than me?

Decompression sickness and sea it utility! :D

Title meant to say SEAMOTH UTILITY, but damn autocorrect ruined it.

Has the game got any effects on your body if you go deep too fast and/or stay down too long? Do they plan to add that?

Also, i know this may not be a popular opinion, but I think that at depths below like 30m, you shouldn't be able to edit your seamoth, as your body wouldn't be able to withstand such a sudden pressure change. I think that the seamoth should have arms and a cargo bay, so that you can still gather resources and build seabases or dig with it. Would add a level of realism (I know it's an alien planet where you can have gravity guns and such and fabricate objects from base elements) and would be honestly quite immersive.

TIL that, to avoid decompression sickness, astronauts "camp out", a procedure which involves sleeping in the airlock at a pressure of 0.7 bar the night before a spacewalk. This purges nitrogen out of the bloodstream, suiting the astronauts for the pure-oxygen atmosphere (0.34 bar) of the spacesuit. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Que…

Is there less danger of decompression sickness if you dive in a high mountain lake rather than as sea level due to reduced atmospheric pressure?

I know pressure as you go up in the atmosphere decreases at a slower rate than pressure increases as you go underwater but maybe if you could transport a tonne of water high enough you'd only be reaching normal atmospheric pressure at the bottom of your dive. And of so, maybe that'd be safer?
