Hello visitor! A note about the contents of this wiki: Barotrauma is a game with several years' worth history as a free-download open source game, and this wiki has been written primarily based on this legacy version. As such, not all content is relevant to the Steam release. So please wait patiently as the contents are updated, and feel free to contribute new information once the Steam version of Barotrauma is released!

There is obvious massive organ damage and the blood vessels of the eye have burst, creating an unnerving red gaze.
The High Pressure affliction can only be seen when examining characters who have died from it, but living characters will be shown the affliction's icon when they are in a high pressure area (most notably, Europa's ocean), death by High Pressure is not instant, and its effects are signaled by screen shaking and Bleeding.
There is no way to treat or heal High Pressure ; its effects can only be prevented by wearing a Diving Suit (However, beyond the depth of 2000m, not even a Diving Suit will provide protection against pressure). A temporary alternative is Anabolic Steroids. The status effect they incur, Vigor, allows a character to survive pressure damage if the drugs are taken prior to exposure; however, unless multiple doses are taken, the character will be unconscious. If Vigor wears off completely, the character will die, so multiple doses of steroids are necessary for continued survival. Tonic Liquid is reccomended.
