Medical Registry for Bone Necrosis in England.
The Decompression Sickness Central Registry formed in England in 1964 to gather information on compressed-air workers and the contracts under which they were employed includes similar data on divers. Records include: personal details about each workers; occupational background; detailed accounts of each incidence of bends; pressure-time exposure for each man's working day and skeletal bone surveys and chest-radiographs. Work is in progress to transfer information to computer storage.
