The cluster of nanobubbles of a dissolved gas adheres to the membrane of the erythrocyte. This cluster is generated due to a steep decrease of arterial pressure which results in the supersaturation of blood with respect to the dissolved gas. The supersaturation leads to the gas nanobubbles nucleation at the erythrocyte membrane. Such an effect is one of possible displays of caisson disease. (Picture: N. F.
