... whales have exhibited gas emboli (pathologies resembling decompression sickness) in their specialized intramandibular and extramandibular fat bodies used for echolocation and hearing. These tissues have phylogenetically unique, endogenous lipid profiles with poorly understood biochemical properties...

...A. Fahlman; A. Schmidt; D. R. Jones; B. L. Bostrom; Y. Handrich SUMMARY A mathematical model was used to explore if elevated levels of N 2 , and risk of decompression sickness (DCS), could limit dive performance (duration and depth) in king penguins ( Aptenodytes patagonicus ). The model allowed...
