No book has yet appeared in this country dealing with the subject of Compressed Air Illness ; the only available publications treating on the question are foreign ones, and of these the most recent was founded on observations made more than a quarter of a century ago. The London County Council, in appointing a medical officer to take charge solely of the compressed air work carried on at the Blackwall Tunnel, and in obtaining powers to compensate men injured by the compressed air, has gone out of its way to meet the dangers incurred by the workmen, and in so doing has placed me in a somewhat unique position so far as the opportunity of observing the nature of these strange illnesses is concerned. I have felt compelled, therefore, to undertake the task of recording my observations, however imperfect those observations may be.
