Translation for 'narcosis' from English to Bulgarian

narcosis {noun}
наркоза {ж}мед.
Usage Examples English
  • Helium as a breathing gas has no narcotic properties, so helium mixtures such as trimix, heliox and heliair are used for deep diving to reduce the effects of narcosis, which worsen with increasing depth.
  • Other risks include nitrogen narcosis because most divers are using compressed air when diving at Cozumel and not trimix.
  • Nitrogen narcosis is a reversible alteration in consciousness that occurs while breathing gas with a high partial pressure of nitrogen.
  • Divers can learn to cope with some of the effects of narcosis, but it is impossible to develop a tolerance.
  • Narcosis is a phenomenon that occurs when a combination of organic toxicants, each at low concentrations, have a toxic effect on an organism.

  • In general, narcosis II is characterized by greater toxicity than narcosis I.
  • Under hyperbaric conditions, hypercapnia contributes to nitrogen narcosis and oxygen toxicity by causing cerebral vasodilation which increases the dosage of oxygen to the brain.
  • Helium (He) is an inert gas that is less narcotic than nitrogen at equivalent pressure (in fact there is no evidence for any narcosis from helium at all), and it has a much lower density, so it is more suitable for deeper dives than nitrogen.
  • Narcosis may be completely reversed in a few minutes by ascending to a shallower depth, with no long-term effects.
  • He died on 23 November 1945 in Utrecht, in narcosis, aged 59.
